chanel fall 2012 collection {the crystal fortress}

Posted on March 7th, 2012

Karl’s latest collection looks like it was being shown deep inside a labyrinth of amethyst mines. The runway was layered in white glittery sand that almost seemed snow-like beneath the models feet, and each outfit I looked at was glamorous, futuristic and that brand of chic that is truly unique only to Chanel. I also loved Karl’s take on the current intricate layering trend, a delightful twist on the norm as he mixed feathers, tweed and papier-mâché like fabrics to create a collection that was beyond just memorable, but mesmerizing as well. source

    Super creative but not entirely a practical wardrobe! Love the setting he created though.

    The details are brilliant and gorgeous, but to be honest I think the shapes and fits from the clothing feels to futuristic for Chanel…
