Chanel Fall 2012 Haute Couture, a “new vintage” inspired collection!

Keywords: chanel, couture, paris fashion week

As I type, Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris is wrapping up, and so far one of the most memorable collections has been Chanel, which showed on Monday. The collection was the perfect mixture of  classic and current.

According to Mr. Lagerfeld, ”Vintage is depressing, but ‘new vintage’ is something to come. It’s preparation for something that could last.”

The collection consists of both trendy and classic silhouettes; harem pants, swingy capes, and broad shoulders, with film noir-esque color palette of black, white, grey, and swirls of dusty rose. This collection exudes luxury and is the epitome of couture. Well done Mr. Lagerfeld, well done!
