wonderful pictures. Le grand spectacle as usual at Chanel. Kaiser Karl knows how to throw a big show. Love Ines back – she was and is so much more interesting than la Schiffer. Much more in the vein of a smart, strong woman a la Coco.
I know I will raise eyebrows, my girlfriend will "have headaches" every night for next 2 weeks and probably I will get my place in hell for saying that(Karl is the pope afterall), but I didnt like it. Althought I realize the richness and the innovativeness of the materials, the semi couture finishings, the intricacy of the embroidery, the precisioon in the cut, there is something somber in the collection that gives me a not so pleasant feeling. And the clunky shoes are in my opinion the ugliest I've seen this season.I really appreciate delicate shoes for women.those platforms are heinous. Yes,as a show, it was beyond spectacular but the silhouete does not appeal to me. Sweet Lord, please forgive me for my blasphemies.
Wow Ines de La Fressange and Karl, I did not think the reunion would happen… Loved those two from a very early age, I used to cut the Chanel ads with her on it when I was 8!! As usual the show looks amazing, great photos!
I just have to say that I love the last photo the length, the sheerness, the sleeves of the dress on the left is amazing!!! I really enjoyed looking at pictures of this show. Thank you gor sharing your pictures with us.
when one thinks of chanel nowadays, one only thinks of karl lagerfeld. but does he make any memorable clothes? no. only lagerfeld as a persona, these nice looking shows and the memory of coco chanel used for advertisement.
I've adored Ines from day one and Karl is certainly a genius, but I'd have to call this a weak collection. Very surprising on its own, but especially when compared to the other designers you've shot lately.
And how cute is Brad Koenig's son? I love the matching outfit when I saw it the other day. Overall the show looked flawless, but it ended up everywhere so I chose to write about McQueen's show instead. It was good, but overshadowed by Chanel.
I'm certain that I may be the cheese that stands alone with this comment but I'm not thrilled with the drastically dark turn Chanel has opted for. Though I this by no means is an indication of the richness and movement of the pieces.
I'm not sure what this says of the design this season at Chanel, but your photos, taken from a variety of angles and which highlight the grace and elegance of the clothing, make the collection much more palatable that the NYTimes' head-on shots.
Chanel will never disappoint. You are always amazed, always given the pleasure of seeing the delicateness and detailing of each piece. I've expressed my amazement on my blog with my review on the show. But anyway, Chanel, je t'aime.
Ines is gorgeous and deserves to be on the catwalk! She really adds an extra dash of class to Chanel (and this IS Chanel we're talking about so that's saying a lot!) The man walking with the little boy is adorable! There's a reason to have a child — to dress it as a Chanel mini-me!
I'll just say it. Karl looks ridiculous. He should lose the indoor sunglasses and the pink lipstick, get a haircut, and throw on a nice dark tee shirt. The high collar, pony tail, and fingerless gloves make him look like a stork.
