>> Take a cigarette (or maybe you prefer the cigarette pants instead), breathe in, and exhale... because Paris is in New York. Kaiser Karl cleared out the Chanel flagship for a pre-fall showing. I'm seeing high necks, I'm seeing skinny pants, tuxedo shirts, short gloves, and did I mention the monochrome palette? A couple of hits (think classic Chanel skinny suits, berets, and a dress that reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor) and a couple of misses (a net overlay dress with a huge brooch at the middle, a dress with a clown collar), but everything with a twist of retro. And besides, the Kaiser still has time to fix the wrongs. I do love a good sneak-peak, don't you?
