I love the venue, but the clothes are lackluster as usual.

Hm I'm not liking this whole 'darker' side of Chanel that Karl is doing.

^ Yes. I thought the hats were so 80s.

I definitely adore the set and the hats with black laced veil, I think that's quite genius. But aside from that (and some of the last structural gowns) it's all so.. boring. It's the Chanel we've seen a thousand times, 30 recolored suits and 20 conservative looking gowns.
Although we did get a dark theme this time, I shouldn't be complaining. Not that I like it.

To me, this collection is really shockingly beautiful. The gowns! I'm actually surprised by how much I've fallen in love with some of the pieces. It's feminine without being dated and dramatic without losing subtlety.

This is just a side note, but I've also always loved the idea of wearing a piece of lace as a mask.

I cant wait to see a video of this collection.

You echoed my exact feelings. I adore this, the construction, and the way that it feels classic without being washed out. You can see and feel Coco in those pieces.

The suits are very Lagerfeld-esque. And by that I'm referring to his eponymous label. For instance, when I saw the suits, I immediately thought of this look from nearly 20 years ago:


Even the gowns are reminiscent of Lagerfeld's eponymous line. And although the suits are basically the same-old same-old that we've seen countless times before, they are very wearable. I don't like any of the gowns though. However, this collection overall is a major improvement over last year's Fall couture with its horrible old-lady long skirts.
