Even though it's far too literal and stereotypical for my tastes (IT HAS PLAIDS AND SCARVES AND KILTS SO OF COURSE IT'S SCOTTISH), it looks pretty good. I love the outfit coordination here. The final white pieces look great - inspired by the castle ghosts of Scotland, maybe?

Partly due to them recently acquiring Barrie Knitwear which provides Chanel's Cashmere.

This pre-fall/resort colections (or Chanel in general) are a joke!
Remeber that chic and amazing show in Venice that was to die for?
Its so sad when you are really expecting clothes and they give you costumes.

Some of the pieces itself are quite tolerable, but put together it's a mess. Way too costume-y. And why does Karl have such a bad taste in models lately?

Some of of the clothes seem really gorgeous (like the white gowns) and it's nice that Chanel has added Barrie Knitwear to the house. It's nice to see them continue the legacy of the knitwear brand. However, at the same time, I get the feeling that it's very typical of Karl, he goes to a location finds an "identity" he likes (such as with the 2012 pre-fall collection inspired by India) and adopts it for a season. It sort of feels like he's playing dress-up in another culture. I understand that a lot of fashion is like this but with Chanel I just wish he would have more continuity with the collections (besides tweed). But then again, I think Alexander McQueen took the concept of Scotland and tartan to new heights with his 'Highland Rape collection', his collection had an added layer of depth, which was in part because of his Scottish heritage and his understanding of the Scottish identity (and because he was freaking amazing). And I just don't get that same sort of understanding from this pre-fall collection.
