PFW: Chanel


Karl Lagerfeld has done it again! Some how he manages to use the same classic elements of tweed, monochrome and tailoring and reworks them to make his new collections fresh and exciting. The Autumn/Winter collection shown in Paris today has a masculine edge, mixed with it's ladylike charm. Slouchy tailored trousers were rolled up to reveal satin lining and boyish blazers were layered up with beautiful tweed jackets.

The set designs of Chanel catwalks are always dramatic and a big part of the show. This time Karl created a post-apocalyptic scene with smoking rubble surrounding the wooden runway. It is definitely one of my favourites - just look how breathtaking it is as a backdrop to these photos.

In other Chanel news, it has been revealed today that Lily Allen has visited Chanel's headquarters and said "I'm here to see Karl for my wedding dress." Could her wedding dress beat Kate Middleton's? Stay tuned to Four Weddings...maybe not!
