I couldn’t contain my couture crush of Chanel today and posted early the truly ah-mazing center for the show. The only thing that could top the Fall-Winter 2010-2011 gilded majestic lion in the middle of the runway are the breathtaking works of clothing art.
Chanel brought deep jewel tones, heavy materials, golden adornments, paired with messy bed head and a standout red pout to wow the crowd once more. While I find the pieces much more wearable than say the Dior ’10 couture show there are a few “le sigh” factors. Karl Lagerfeld said the lion motif was inspired by the late founder, who was of course, a Leo. The big jewels, scrunchy boots, and fur accents have me craving breezy Fall weather, especially while battling this 100° NYC heat!
Chanel’s Creative Director, Karl my darling, explained that “Everything has been removed; we had to strip a little but without making it dry, minimalist, false or pretentious.” While the clothing displays decadence through detailing, the Kaiser explained that all he wanted was simplicity, deciding to show no floor length gowns- a usual staple for the Haute Couture shows.

I have to say I would 100% wear every look that came down today’s runway in a heartbeat. Some favorites follow…
