Be still my heart, what a magnificent effort from as he presents his latest collection at his Chanel Paris-Bombay Show at the Grand Palais on December 6, 2011 in Paris, France!!!
In this show, intended to honor the Chanel’s craftsmen, Lagerfeld took inspiration from the India’s people, telling the Wall Street Journal that “even the poor have dignity…even poor women own three gold bracelets.” And there certainly was no lack of gold in the clothes nor the jewelry. Wow, i love him words! He is absolutely right!
The Indian influence was strictly traditional, ranging from churidar-style leggings to the forehead-grazing teekas mentioned above. The shapes hearken back to classic Indian fashion, certainly, and the jewelry pairings make for truly stunning ensembles.
Against a white background at Paris’ Grand Palais, models paraded past tables piled high with fruit, macarons, candelabras and other luxurious knickknacks. Bedecked with heavy silks and traditional South Asian teekas, the women carried forth Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld’s vision for a display entitled “Paris-Bombay Métiers d’Art Show” on Tuesday.
Let's enjoy together this beautiful fashion show!
And finally, some looks which i preferred!
Well,..bravo Chanel! & well-done, Karl Lagerfeld!
