Chanel Pre-Autumn/Winter 2011 show

Looking through the run show of Karl Lagerfeld’s pre-fall 2011 collection for Chanel, I was astonished by the collection, it was ornate and beautiful. I fell in love with the gold jewelry (the bangles, the necklaces, the headbands), how the gold color is used, the embedded jewels, the whole Byzantine look, the slim jeans and the jeweled flat sandals. The collection has rich velvet, silk, embroidery & beaded mosaic. The venue was the couture salon, which was transformed into “a seraglio of golden shimmer”. Guests were seated on low banquettes on gold-pailletted pillows. The clothes in this collection are super cool, sexy and modern. Many of the looks are definitely for a daring young ‘Chanel’ woman. Lagerfeld has done it again. I also believe the hairstyle is highly likely to become the next popular look for the elite socialites, “the wound-around birdsnest topknot” with a beautiful embellished headband. Check out the photos from the show below.
