Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 - Paris Byzance
Chanel's Pre-Fall 2011 Show was inspired by the ancient Greek city Byzantium and the Empress Theodora. I've got 10 of my favourite looks up, out of a collection of 67 including menswear worn by Karl Lagerfeld's muse Baptiste Giabiconi. The collection features flat sandals and boots, heavy jewelled lines having a main colour palette for gold, black, white and navy with pops of colour here and there. The collection I love love love, I particularly love the square panelled pants (bottom center) and the high waisted pants (bottom right). The Jewelled accents remind me of those outrageous buttons found on 70/80's vintage clothing, but all in all a rich and cultured collection.
