Chanel (Paris-Byzance AW2011)

Attended the Chanel pre-fall exclusive preview on sat at Ritz Carlton.  Karl’s inspiration is still as amazing season after season.  This season uncle karl found his inspiration from Turkish influence.  Imagine …threaded gold, rich spice-inspired colors, lotsa jewels.  Coco’s love of byzantine’s-style jewelry was the caused for this season’s look.  Clothes dripping with gemstones.  I was being ushered into the function room by Chanel ambassoders.  The whole collection were presented using mannequins.  Collection is already in the stores.
