Chanel RTW 2009


I thought this collection was freaking brilliant. Karl Lagerfeld did a freaking brilliant job. I loved the strange jade colors and big overzealous knitwear. The black in all of it, of course, was incredibly chic. The heels were beautiful. They actually look like a pair of skyscrapers I designed in my head the other day...

i love the kind of over-the-top aspects of it. the plastic chanel carrying case? hilarious. and the texture on the heels is insanity.

mmmmm...
those heels are the best.
topshop just stuck a couple jackets up
similar to the gothy black ones.
I can't wait for the cold weather to come around.

Lagerfeld is just a genius, this collection is so chic and yet slightly different, just perfection.
Those heels are amazing.

i adored this collection. the only thing i didn't like was the clear plastic casing on those bags...
the backpack is to die for, as well as everthing else especially that shade of green!

Eleanor said...

I agree, this collection is so beautiful. I love how Karl Lagerfeld manages to create classic, stylish, ageless pieces season after season, while always remaining loyal to Coco Chanel's vision for the label.

See, German people are still the best, they know what they are doing, go made in Germany!
I never thought I could use the word German so often in a sentence, but I can.
