Chanel Pre-Fall 2012
I can see the dreadlocks and head-wraps on the fashion elites on the magazines and streets now. Karl Lagerfeld has the ability to turn the unusual into something that all the fashion gals have got to have, i.e. creepers and flatforms.
For the Pre-Fall this year, Karl was inspired by Bombay, India. With the sense of layering and drapery of the clothing that is true to the former city. The looks were styled with tons of jewelry (headpieces, bangles, etc) that will make Nicole Richie swoon. Along with the gold lamé leggings and layered trousers, Karl also featured the trend of the moment, velvet trousers. These weren’t the ordinary velvet ones that everyone else is doing. They have a bronzy, gold sheen to them when they hit the light. Though being so heavily inspired by Indian culture, there is still the soul of Chanel in each look. You can check out some of the looks below.
