Taking place in a dark and cozy forest with 12 bare trees and damp leaves under the feet, the Autumn/Winter collection was in one word, Karl Lagerfeld fashion with a romantic 80's twist. Colors included blacks, burnt metallics, mustard yellows, pinks and blues; all in all, a much more wearable and practical collection than the previous bright PVC items. Puffer jackets, capes and tweed coats were in long, slim silhouettes, combined with patina gold flat boots and sparkly grey/black tights. Every item had an element of added detail, such as leather-trimming on tweed, high-neck collars, double-layer shoulder detail and balloon sleeves. Accessories were also key this season from the Madonna-esque pink fingerless gloves and mega-sized jewelry to oversized clutch bags.
Established by the revolutionary legend Gabrielle Coco Chanel, the luxury fashion house has been a long-standing icon in the ever-evolving industry. The luxurious brand is known for its simplistic elegant pieces that stand the test of time. Coco's signature pieces such as tweed suit skirts and quilted handbags still remain as the centerpieces of the brand. However, another significant figure, Karl Lagerfeld, has worked his magic onto the brand by adding personality to CHANEL. His touch of edginess, humor, fantasy, sexines and sophistication is obvious at each collection; every year, Lagerfeld pushes the industry with his fusion of fantasy with timeless fashion pieces.
