2009 Spring Couture: Chanel

Karl was on a strict diet of black, white, and paper when designing Spring couture. I'm predicting white is about to be the color du jour, thanks to Michelle Obama's dreamy Jason Wu gown. As always, Karl was psychic. His designs may have been scaled down, but they were anything but streamlined. Cuts were sharp or voluminous, shoulders and waists were punctuated, and details were both in-your-face and obscure.Varied beading techniques were used, exhibiting the keen craftsmanship of couture. Flower appliques were whimsical, black and white floral motifs were flirtatious. Elaborate head pieces added drama. Separates were aplenty for those watching their wallets. There was no high drama here, but there was plenty to keep couture costumers quenched.

I really liked that he used minimal color. It let the designs speak for themselves. I thought the cuts were divine and that the collection a wide variety of looks despite the lack of color.

When brides go bad. I'm not impressed. Boring and safe with too many wedding dress-ish overtones. *yawn*
