Karl Lagerfield really outdid himself this time. We're going to ignore the fact that fall is not for another year and simply discuss this stunning collection. Obviously, it was Indian-inspired. You saw it everywhere, from the headpieces to the nose rings to the draped pants to the collars to the plentiful prints. Despite never having been to India, Karl got it totally right. And he used Indian girls! It's about time, fashion is seriously deprived of Indian models. What I really appreciated about the design was the effortless synthesis of classic Chanel craftsmanship and elegance with modern edginess and ease. Even the tweed suits looked completely new, an enormous feat considering the brand has been making them for a billion years (well, since 1926). Overall, it was a luxurious collection replete with detail and innovation.
