It’s Paris Fashion Week, and that, of course, means CHANEL!! My favorite! Karl Lagerfeld worked his magic yet again, and the Fall 2011 Couture line is stunning.
Of course, it began with a re-working of Chanel’s classic suit, with lots of tweed. The major trend in these suits is peplums - most of the two-piece outfits coming down the catwalk had a ruffle around the waist. The two-toned suits emphasized the hips, while the monochrome ones played it down.
The maxi-suits are very cool, too, and show a great way to dress up the longer-skirt trend.
Next we have this black cocktail dress, which I think would be awesome without boots, which I find a bit overwhelming. Just imagine it with some black Loubitons, and all will be well.
The white dress is wintry yet light, and very beautiful. I can imagine a floor-length version on an Oscars red carpet.
Finally we have this art-deco gown. The beading is gorgeous, and the belted waist keeps the pattern from overwhelming the model’s body.
