Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld go to India

by All Things Dark And Beautiful

Karl Lagerfeld decided to show Chanel’s Pre-Fall 12 Collection. A very clever idea my monochrome man.

With recognisable Indian influenced garments including  tunics over leggings in raw silks styled with signature Chanel tweed, Paris meets India was fully materialized.

Currently with most high street stores locating their production in low-cost countries such as India, showcasing Indian characteristics with Parisian quality and craftsmanship turns the status quo on its head.

Not all the looks however were attractive to my western bias eye. My favourites below:


Looks 8, 10, 68 and 69

 These looks look absolutely amazing together; so regal and beautiful; they have a very fresh feeling to them. Maybe a look for Kate and Wills on an official visit to India. Maybe not, Wills isn’t that adventurous. More Angelina and Brad.

The catwalk hosted elaborate 18th Century like feast adornments adding to the dynamic luxury of the set. Bravo Chanel…

…and the monochrome pin-up himself.
