    The pictures are on Chanel.com right now. Sadly, the video won't come out until tomorrow. The theme is ballerina/20's silhouettes and, like last year's cocktails collection, tons of embroidery by Lesage!

    In my opinion, the collection is just mediocre. The first ten or so looks are clean and modern, but it gets pretty "standard Lagerfeld" in the middle. The last four dresses are wonderful!

    I agree. there were those pieces that stood out as absolutely beautiful and then there were some that were just bleh.

    As I wrote today for my blog, Fendi is the last remaining label in which Lagerfeld keeps doing a splendid job.

    Well, Fendi is definately the his best ready-to-wear line, but I absolutely adore Chanel couture (especially last season).

    I think he just has a problem keeping his Victorian frou-frou off all of his collections.:P

    I think Karl does a magnificent job at Chanel.

    But I always wonder, how the *bleep* does this guy find all the time to do so many collections?

    He has a team who'll create the clothes from his sketches...

    I like it as there are some nice pieces inthere, but for some reason it was looking a little Prada SS 07. Maybe it's just me. ^_^

    (On a side note, I think I saw Inguna Butane back to what looks like her old hair color. She looks better now!)

    i have to say that I really dislike this collection. I simply don't see anybody below 40 to wear those things. boring and simply OLD.

    I really like this collection too, more than s/s 2007, i think s/s07 is just a bit boring(a lot of re-makes)... and to me, this collection is more like couture as there are many couture elements. The shoes and boots are adorable. Paris-Monte Carlo is soo Coco Chanel! Luv it.:heart:

    Careful there caffeine ^_^ , I'm over 40 :D and the only thing I would wear is the red silk blouse. the rest is just old no matter what age you are.

    excuses but i dont see this 'old' not a all.. it certainly wasnt designed with the +40 client in mind, i could look terribly boring on 'older' women

    rare since i'm not a karl fan but i like some of those looks posted here by kimair
    like the first look at post 11 and the trouser look at post 10 & 9
    loved the knit bolero -white shirt-lng skirt look at post 9, i could live in this look next winter

    some of the worst looks are 'daywear'
    modernism gone wrong> horrible..
    [​IMG]
    common highstreet mood> tragic
    [​IMG]

    fave point from the collection, the mix of 'daywear' knits with evening wear

    [​IMG]
    i almost like this too

    excluding the 'tacky daywear' this is a fun 'in the spirit' of Coco collection, after all those years maybe la karl-la is finally getting the Coco message

    Sorry :cry: ...I didn't think...but you know what I meant...it's just like he is dressing people old, on purpose :doh:
    many pieces of day wear are almost made with Coco in her last years in Karl's mind...

    :boxer: ^, just toying with you. you are right on target as far as I'm concerned, KL really needs to take off the shades and see what's fresh.

    Those first two images are actually attendees of the fashion show, they're not looks from the collection.
