Hipster style!? :)
“Hmmmm how can I make my ass, hips and thighs look WAYYY bigger than they actually are? I’ll just wear some new Chanel pants”.
Do you hear that sound?? Listen carefuly, that Coco Chanel spinning in her grave and attempting to curse out Karl’s name.
It is the most grotesque collection I’ve seen in a looooong time.
is he over going to us models who arent white ??? besides the token asian of course….*sarcasm*
so true :(
this is the most vile excuse for fashion I’ve seen since…… UM.. the last collection Lagerfeld “created”
dior the best collction in fall 2011
are you sober? where is the dior in this?
The overalls. Good lord.
I’ve always wondered how collections like this came to be.
I mean, I can see how when you make a sketch of an impossibly tall and thin woman, most designs would look good.
But when someone actually makes the design, and it looks as horrible as some of the pieces here, who’s the person who says “Great! off to the runway!”.
Are they feeling sorry for all the fabric and work hours that went into it?
The silhouette is etremely unflattery. Plus, I have a hard time understanding the floppy random cloth around models’ ankle. I don’t see any reason why I would like to dress like this.
Also, the reason that he obviously refuses to use blakc model, both for Chanel and Fendi, really throws me off. I am sure Chanel has demographic besides white and asians, and other consumers would like to see themselves being represented. He said he only used models of the same skin tone to keep the show’s consistency. This sounds extremely racist to me.
Anyway, he was a legendary designer, but these days, I cannot see that anymore, regardless how many compliments he still receives.
Oh it doesnt just sound racist, IT IS racist. You’re right about Fendi too…not a single non-white girl. Its even rare to see a white brunette in his show. I mean I know Coco Chanel allegedly collaborated with Nazis, but seriously, this is 21st century.
This is wrong….
How can he create such wonderful couture collections and then come up with this?
This collection is just tragic. So sad.
oh great, that WORD again. UGH. please no more POST-APOCALYPTIC COLLECTIONS. i thought we were done with those by the end of 2009.
It really isn’t that horrible; I just think that the styling/set really killed it for everyone. I mean if you look closely, some of the individual pieces are pretty nice. Except the pants. Good god are they A W F U L.
omg… how is this possible?!!!?? -even the black stockings are ugly…
honestly, after digesting this a bit more, this feels like it could have been a lot worse. there were a selective handful of seperates that weren’t so bad.
There are a lot of separates which are great, but the overall impression is quite bad.
I don’t want to be rude, but even beggars can “design” better pants than Karl now, thank god, we still have classic 2.55
Lagerfeld’s collection this season is gorgeous and extremely on point. It is so inspiring to finally see something from Chanel that is daring, edgy, and a departure from the traditional and convservative suits and dresses they usually show. An extremely inspiring and refreshing collection from Chanel. Praise Karl.
maybe Tim Burton can make use of these pieces.
For some reason. I hate them ALL!!
I just don’t get the fit of those trousers. They’re not at all flattering. I actually like most of the pieces in this EXCEPT the big pants.
I LOVE THIS. haters be hatin’
a couple of years ago when I mentioned on style.com that Karl was at the end of his rope i was so thoroughly chastised. I think Karl is doing what ever he feels with out any concern. In his mind he thinks he is Coco Chanel
Is it just me or are many of these photos striking shots of the models? I’m iffy about the collection, but some of the faces here are stunning images.
oh my…the models shrunk and have gained weight eh? oh wait, its the clothes, never mind.
