Chanel RTW Fall 2012

The highly anticipated show yesterday morning in Paris did not disappoint, nor did Karl Lagerfeld’s use of new, change, and color. Luxe jewel tones, mix of textures, and plays on volume took over the crystal-covered runway. The suits, as always, were gorgeous and jackets took on new lengths and silhouettes.  The styling- from the long fingerless leather gloves, to the hand held bags and clutches, right down to the crystal-embroidered eyebrows from Lesage- was gorgeous as well. The kaleidoscopic details and chunky knit sweaters (let’s be real, they looked like they came straight off Zack Morris’ back in Saved by the Bell) were not my favorite pieces. But as the collection continued, the pieces became more sleek, chic, refined, and so Chanel.  A tweed and feather jacket in a complete monochromatic gray and black look followed by a lavender dress drowning in feathers and lace… It doesn’t get much better than that. In fact, does anything get better than Chanel?

Street Style Sunnies

At last! The clouds have broken and the sun is actually brightening up the city of Paris.  I can finally dig out my Chanel sunglasses and wear them in the city where Chanel matters most.  When leaving to go take a peek at the Tour de France cyclists coming in along the Champs Elysées at the end of their long ride, I grabbed my camera to take some photos of other onlookers’ chic shades.

Days 4, 5 and 6: Une édutiante de la mode

Quite a few days have passed since I took my first stroll down the streets of Paris and despite the consistent cold and dreary rain I am loving this city. Since my fashion business class has started, each day is filled with adventures to stylish destinations, and each evening overly filled with assignments. On the rainiest of days since I have been here, we headed out to the heart of the city to the haute couture House of Lesage. Owned by Chanel, Lesage is France’s oldest embroiderer where Chanel, Dior, and Lanvin, just to name a few, have pieces of their couture made. After climbing five flights of stairs in that gorgeous building of the 2nd arrondissement, we toured though Lesage, amazed. We admired vintage embroidered couture samples from the 1920s, Dior patterns being drawn, Chanel belts and a Chanel top being hand sewn, and Karl Lagerfeld’s designs tacked on the wall. I was absolutely blown away. It was beautiful, it was amazing, it was unreal. I thought shopping in Paris was heaven… Nope, seeing couture happen at the House of Lesage was heaven.

The next few days followed with a trip to the Louvre to see the Hussein Chalayan exhibit, a trip to the Rodin Museum, a walk along the Champs Elysées, and many stops at cafés for espressos and croissants. I am starting to feel like a true Parisienne. I think I’ve eaten enough croissants and pain au chocolat to last me a lifetime.

So happy with the purchase I made today.
Love!
