Chanel F/W 2012

Chanel Fall/Winter 2012

Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t do anything by halves, so when he tackles crystals for fall you can bet it will be done in a big way. Chanel‘s seasonal extravaganza transformed the Grand Palais into a petrologist’s dream, with larger than life faux crystals decorating every surface. On the runway models were draped in layers of vibrant hues, with razor sharp cuts meant to mimic the shape of all those gorgeous stones. Tiny gems and moonstones even adorned some of those signature Chanel tweeds. This was hard rock, the Chanel way – which means the merger of classicism and modernity, with a focus on youth. No, we don’t mean Brad Kroenig’s adorable son, Hudson making his way down the Chanel runway – though surely that was a highlight. Lagerfeld has always found ways of infusing newness into his designs and that was especially true in this festive and beautiful collection.
