King of the Catwalk (Chanel Haute Couture A/W 10)

With the Lion being King of the Jungle, I wondered if the reason Karl Lagerfield installed an enourmous gold one in the centre of the Grand Palais in Paris for his A/W 10/11 haute couture show, was to exert himself as King of the Catwalk, but apparently the whole idea for the installation was based around a bronze ornament which can be found in Coco Chanel's apartment as a reminder of her star sign, Leo. The models and indeed Karl himself, emergied onto the catwalk via a large pearl seemingly clutched by the Lions giant  paw.
There were no Little Black Dresses gracing the Runway as Karl said before the show, that "every woman already has one", so the collection spanned a vast colour palette not usuallly seen at Chanel, of autumnal colours with some midnight navy thrown in for good measure.  Mid length boots and elbow length sleeves graced tweed suits and embellished dresses alike and for the shows finale, a half man, half lion, escorted a bride in a short dress with gold embellishment and long train, again finished off with a variation of the boots that were seen with every other outfit.

  5. Truly an amazing show. I picked my looks from the Marie Claire site but when I looked at the images on the Chanel site, there were a whole load not even seen. I think I could have had twice the amount of favourites! I find Chanel very subjective - overall I can easily love a show as a whole but then I go round and round the looks trying to pick some...almost impossible! xx
