Pre Fall 09: Chanel

Man alive! Does Karl ever take vacations?
This collection was all about Russia, and I gotta tell you, the results were WAY more amazing than I was expecting. Not that I'd ever doubt Karl, of kourse.

Hello awesome Constructivist dress! Beat the whites with the (white) wedge*.

Red red red red classic Chanel suit. This is just fantastic.

This dress has such an awesome mix of folkloric prints with modern art that's just super rad. The gold tights are just the cherry on the sundae.

I think the bottom half of this dress is totally gross but ooh the dress is just fantastic. I even love those crazy ruffled sheer gloves.

I always love a chic dres with more details than meets the eyes. The great geometric print, the subtle origami folds at the front, it's just the kind of thing you know you'll be able to wear for forever.

*Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge by El Lissitzky. You know, play on words and all. I am sooo cleverrr!

Karl Lagerfeld is freakin amazing. I know some people who hate what he has done to chanel. but, god, they are wrong.

I liked the dress with the folkloric print and hat, but overall I didn't think it was a WOW show...
