Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 Collection Inspired By India

Just like any Chanel show Pre-Fall 2012 show was unique and memorable. This time Lagerfeld organized a huge Indian fest and sent his models walking in between the two tables with plenty of food on them. A few Indian models took part in the show and added the necessary national color which the clothing might have lacked.

I don’t like Indian motifs, all those garments and loads of jewelry they usually wear both on the daily basis and for special events. I don’t, really. But fashion created by Karl Lagerfeld inspired by Indian culture is quite a different thing. It looks interesting and I literally examined every outfit of Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 collection. And I can tell you I was impressed.

Karl Lagerfeld, who was one of the first to present Pre-Fall 2012 collection, organized a show which resembled Indian fests, with plenty of food on tables, people laughing and enjoying themselves, beautiful women, including Indian models, walking around… It was grand and unusual, and it will definitely stay in our memories just like all incredible Chanel shows.

Speaking about clothing in Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 collection I can say it was based on basic Indian garment styles but Chanel feel remained, making the range modern and interesting for European and Western cultures.

Long, beautiful robes embellished with pearls, cropped pants made of shining fabrics, grey and white leggings to cover legs as well as many other elements of traditional Indian fashion went along with signature Chanel tweed suits and coats, and warm elegant dresses.

Shoes in Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 collection were all flat. The variety of styles ranged from open sandals often featuring shoes that weren’t alike in the same pair to comfy booties perfect for long walks.
