It’s All About Chanel at PFW F/W’13

The Grand Palais in Paris played host to Karl Lagerfeld’s latest vision for Chanel’s fall and winter collection, which featured a 50 ft. high revolving globe in the middle of the runway. As Chanel was naturally my most highly anticipated show, Lagerfeld delivered with a stunning fall collection that emphasizes what couture and fashion are really all about. Staying true to the Chanel brand, a majority of the models wore the classic Chanel tweed looks with dresses, long coats, and jackets. As yarned wool is the key Chanel material, plenty of variations (mostly in black) were incorporated into the looks, followed by reddish, cream, and pink variations. One thing that stuck out most of all, were the thigh-high leather stockings that completed many of the models’ looks, paired with long coats, skirts, and jackets, giving off the ultimate schoolgirl-chic vibe. Accessories included little globe clutch bags on chains, furry aviator caps, and of course fabulous Chanel bags with notable colors such as yellow and burgundy. With fashion icons and European royalty filling up the Grand Palais, this was one show not to be missed in the fashion world. I am lusting for everything; from the chunky accessories to the floral jackets, shoes, and everything in between, Chanel truly is the ultimate in chic couture and the show has us dreaming for fall!
