I'm waiting for a new head designer, most of the time Karls designs are utterly boring and predictable.

God what an eyesore. This has to be one of his worst collections.

Chanel is going to get a lot of flack for this show. But they won't care.

It is so disheartening to see the use of the Native Indian headress and make up in this collection. There is no sensitivity at all.

Anyway, this looks terribly predictable and ugly.
You are right. That's basically it.

I think the barn says it all really.

Crosses are "sacred" and "hold deep spiritual religious meanings" to a lot of people. Those religious icon images that have showed up on dresses are "sacred" and "hold deep spiritual religious meanings" to a lot of people. Was anyone "offended"?

This is something I've never understood. What do past wrongs have to do with a fashion collection today? And why is paying an homage to a culture a bad thing? When did it become a bad thing? Are people in Europe as trigger-happy to start complaining about it, or is this just an American thing?

Karl did a Russian collection a few years back. Russian/Slavic people have suffered all kinds of tragedies too, did anyone complain about that? And as a Slavic person myself, I personally wasn't offended by it either. Why is it usually the people who aren't even in the given group that seem to be the most 'offended' by the whatever currently hip insensitivity taking place?

It's about respect. I suggest you research warbonnets and the history surrounding the genocide of native Americans. Past wrongs still happened, and this Chanel collection is a cruel reminder to many. Also, everyone has the right to be offended regardless of ethnic background. I mentioned earlier why I feel that bindis/crosses etc were not particularly offensive to me as they are chiefly used as body decoration and do not signify any rank. The bonnets do.
