I might be the only one to say that but Karl Lagerfeld disappoints me the third season in succession. He used to be my favorite designer along with Donatella Versace but while Donatella creates great collections season after season, Karl seems to have changed. He has lost his sparkle. He is no longer able to make the woman look feminine and chic. Even his Couture Fall 2011 collection fails to impress.
The Couture Fall 2011 show was amazing though. Deemed lights, visual illusion of rain that has just fallen, and total glam of the beginning of the 20th century created the atmosphere of something very interesting to take place. And probably the idea was good as well because Karl Lagerfeld tried to show the full life story of legendary Coco Chanel.
The clothing showcased during Chanel Couture Fall 2011 fashion show was actually rather wearable. Tweed and velvet skirt suits trimmed with fur, embroidered and embellished with beads looked a bit dull but they had that attractive vintage feel we like. Besides, they are classic and can be perfect for many occasions.
Leather knee-high boots from Chanel Couture Fall 2011 collection looked lovely but those which looked like made of plastic weren’t good at all. And the fingerless gloves didn’t fit in the range. They would probably look more stylish if worn with something different from what Lagerfeld dressed his models in.
