Paris Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Chanel

What's black, white and fabulous all over? You know it. OK, throw in some pink, purple and gray and done. With an inspired Chanel building serving as the backdrop, Karl delivered a wonderfully diverse Spring collection — the spunky separates being my favorites. A sharp bolero jacket and a tailored bowed top and slim knit skirt are on my lust list.

With dramatic headdresses on top and feathered sandals on bottom, what was in between was modern day Chanel. Tweed suits, party frocks and knits were given fresh treatments via beading, bold cuts and a wonderful chain adornment fastened with a brooch. On the subject of all that glitters, the jewelry was maximized; flower cluster necklaces and deco medallions were stunning. Easing into evening, the silhouette is long and lean — can't argue with that. Nothing over the top here, simply laudable Lagerfeld artistry.
