Gossamer, Glittering & Glorious. The Chanel 2011 S/S Haute Couture Collection.

Ethereal, elegant and classic Chanel, the latest couture collection by Karl Lagerfeld featured over 10 million beads, ballerina shoes with clear straps, low waists and tweed jackets embellished with glitter. Despite the ornate detailing, the entire collection appeared light enough to float down the catwalk. Certain signature Chanel elements like black chokers, camellias, and double breasted jackets were present coupled with stunning pale pinks, nudes and classic black and white. Grace and luxury harkened back to the 20’s yet retained a thoroughly modern feel.
