Chanel Pre-Fall 2011

The latest Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 show was nothing like the huge Spring/Summer 2011 show. It was rather intimate and cosy. No Grand Palais, no eighty musicians and no fountains. Just a relaxed setting and lots of beautiful Chanel stuff.

Karl found his inspiration for this pre-fall collection, themed Paris-Byzance, in the lost culture of Byzantium and empress Theodora. He compared Theodora, who once was a circus artist but became the empress, to Coco Chanel who transformed into a fashion empress from being just a singer.

Anyway, the clothes were amazing as always. Some beautiful coats, dresses and skirt suits and wonderful Coco-Chanel-Byzantine-inspired Gripoix jewellery were shown.

And how about the said-to-be new face of Chanel: Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively? I hope the rumours are true! Didn’t she look gorgeous at the Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 Couture show wearing Chanel Resort 2011?
