Chanel Couture 2011

Autumn / Winter 2011

Every season Karl Lagerfeld is able to deliver something unique, something chic and something very CHANEL.
Each model's eyewear was decorated with this strip of shimmer and sheer fabric, adding detail yet simplicity to the elegance that is known by Chanel.

For the first looks, Lagerfeld formed a creation of classic Chanel suits, which can be seen to be broader on the shoulders, and more waisted boxed traditional woven jackets. The little boater hats were worn at the back of the models heads, with almost every spectacular look.

Chanel's Couture runway showed tones of Black and Grey, White and Black, Magenta and Navy. Evening wear for the couture collection shows a lot of length with pleated skirts, paired with length shimmered detailed tops, creating a balance of layering.

SKarman's Choice:
I loved this evening dress, that worked with a sense of layering and length, in order to give that elongated length of a wonderful female body structure. This unique style of Navy Blue and White shading works very well, with the detailed beaded pattern that has created these swirled gathering onto the dress.

Although there being many signs of sheer, lace and shimmer, not much flesh was on display in the collection, small areas were highlighted in order to allow the sophistication of the brand, to shine.

This season Italian brand Prada, has gone for a quirky look on their summer sunglasses. I'm loving the use of two colours, and the texture it brings to the stylish sunglasses, adding a very 50's feel to the whole entire look of the shades.
