Chanel Spring 2011 RTW
Chanel always has something extravagant going on at their fashion shows, and for the Spring 2011 Ready-to wear collection, it was no different.  There were 87 looks, 80 models, an 80-piece orchestra playing symphonies for the models to strut to, a runway covered in white pebbles, fountains, marble and stone structures and landscapes, all taking place underneath the Grand Palais.  Karl Lagerfeld got inspiration from the 1961 film Last Year at Marienbad, a movie you should watch this small video of as it becomes insightful to the 'dreamlike' state Lagerfeld aimed for.  Click here.  Fact: Coco Chanel was the costume designer for that movie.  Lagerfeld also looked to controlled nature for inspiration which you could from a runway that was supposed to resemble the Tuileries but with no flowers and a monochrome aesthetic.  Lagerfeld's collection had something for everyone.  The show begin with classic Chanel tweed looks, moved on to casual looks like blazers, distressed denim, long and chunky necklaces, then to evening wear,  which started simple enough then turned fabulous and flowy and over the top with feathers and sequins galore.  Overall, the show was just enchanting.
