kaiser karl shoots himself in the foot

Tweed >>  Chanel has always been my go-to for the classy, the sophisticated, the chic.  Now, it's my go-to if tight denim bermuda shorts, big fabric camellias, long tacky chain necklaces, and see-through art deco numbers are what I want. But sadly, they're not.  The requisite Chanel tweeds were there, but even they were in bright blaring colors and/or overaccessorized.  It was just too much "revamp" and "re-do" for me, I think.  The runway was set up with a huge computer screen and keyboard at its end, which announced the beginning of the show in a stilted, computery voice.  This signified Kaiser Karl trying to move Chanel forward, but I think he took it a bit too far and made it overkill. 

Cc As always, there is some good to be found in the bad -- a few looks that I did like.  A military style jacket with contrast stitching, and the last two dresses to walk out (left) -- both seem like the Chanel I know.  Not to mention the lovely slouchy boots with their clearly Chanellian black toe -- love those.  Too bad Kaiser Karl couldn't have stuck with these types of things...they really seem to work for him. 

The rest of the collection can be seen here.
