Now, back to the task at hand, my two cents about Chanel's Fall 2011 collection. I've said it before and I'll say it again - dear Mr. Lagerfeld, please, please start editing these collections. I take nothing away from the beauty of the clothing and his design genius, but you could remove 1/3 of this collection and not miss a thing. Bottom line, it gets repetitive. I will say this is my least favorite Chanel collection I've seen in a while, but there were some looks I loved. Here are my faves along with some detail shots (along with one look that should have been edited before it was even thought of - eek!).
Love the mixture of the greys and the textures in this look.
Love the tiny touches of hunter green on the sleeves.
Only include to take note of the heel height and the lack of platform.
Now, do you see what I mean about editing? Who on Earth would wear this jumper/hazmat suit? Why would you want pockets on your knees? And if you were to wear this, would you be in a situation where you would roll up the pant legs and throw on some pointy toe pumps? Come on Karl, work with us here :o)
