Chanel Fall-Winter Ready-to-Wear 2012 Invitation Sneak Peek

chanel fall winter 2012 ready to wear invitation sneak peek

Chanel posted an image as a teaser of the upcoming show tomorrow and all I can make out are crystals. It seems that Karl Lagerfeld has been really inspired by natural beauty for the ready-to-wear collections. Last fall we saw the scorched earth, for this spring we were taken under the sea and for Fall 2012? All I know is that crystals will be involved – can’t wait to see!

Round and Round We Go…

Chanel Autumn Winter 2008 2009 Carrousel

Chanel Autumn-Winter 2008-2009 Carrousel

For the Autumn-Winter 2008-209 show Karl Lagerfeld dreamt up a Chanel carousel with oversize Chanel iconography such as bows, pearls, cuffs, 2.55 bags and camelias.  For the Spring-Summer 2012 show Marc Jacobs conjured up a white carrousel for Louis Vuitton.  Though the Louis Vuitton carrousel is a more traditional carrousel complete with horses, I think it’s a bit too similar too soon, non?  What do you think?

Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 Ready-to-Wear Collection Details

chanel spring summer 2012Earlier today I posted images from the Chanel spring-summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection and the presentation was beautiful.  Though the pieces looked lovely from afar, you really appreciate the intricate workmanship and beauty of the pieces when you see them close up.  It’s also a great way to see what we can expect in the accessories department – the shoes, jewelry and bags.

For spring 2012, the Chanel accessories all evoke the aquatic theme.  Pearls were everywhere – on the apparel, hair, skin and handbags.  Purses came in the shape of conch shells while other bags used the signature quilting and woven leather chain detail but were in the shape of a wrapped parcel.  Heels of shoes were in the shape of coral and conch shells.  Finally, jewelry took its cues from seashells and coral.  Check out the gallery for more detail shots…
