Planet Chanel : This video shows the Chanel autumn/winter 2013 Ready-to Wear collection at Paris Fashion Week.
It’s a Chanel world after all: with a huge globe sitting in the centre of the Grand Palais this morning spinning around with CC flags all over it was clear that we are on planet Chanel. There were high collars on tweed aviatior coats, fluffy pink and teal hats to match, biker boots dripping with chains. There was glossy patent boots riding high up the leg to meet a mini or pleated skirt with more beautiful coats in pink and black and either belted or cocoon-soft. Little Chanel bags were boxy and bright in pink and yellow and blue or were small globe shapes to continue the worldly theme. It was a sparkly collection, so why not add a shiny, glittery eye?
