Karl Lagerfeld knows how to create a spectacle, whether its a hoedown in Texas or a banquet fit for a Rajah, and he delivered yet again with his supermarket-themed Chanel F/W 14 extravaganza this week in Paris.

Lagerfeld continues to have his gloved finger on the pulse of what the modern woman wants. Herewith, the five ways this show (if it’s set design and props went into production) could totally change the way you hit up the frozen foods aisle…

1. You can now wear sneakers to the grocery store.
You may think that sneakers are only excusable in the grocery store post-workout—not true! The Great and Powerful Lagerfeld has decreed that running shoes are now acceptable footwear when running errands. Praise be!

2. Finally! A chic shopping basket.
How many times have you looked down at your Whole Foods basket and felt as if it were keeping the rest of your outfit from reaching it F.F.P. (full fashion potential)? Enter the beautiful chain-linked basket from Chanel’s F/W 14 collection, which is coincidentally perfect for toting your Chanel Handbag through the gluten-free aisle.

3. No need to waste time untangling your jewelry.
File this under French insouciance: a tangled jumble of necklaces is far cooler than one delicate strand. Collectively this will save you about an hour a year, which can now be invested in hunting down the oft-hidden caviar section of your grocery store.

4. Personal assistant included.
We have long coveted the classic Chanel tweed skirt suit. The fact that it now comes with a handsome manservant to carry our shopping bags? No-brainer.

5. A bike chain can double as an accessory.
That hefty bike chain that you typically store in your basket when biking to your next destination? Try layering it around your neck, instead. Not only will it look chic but it’ll add an extra heft of resistance training to your workout regimen. Genius move once again, Lagerfeld!
