Chanel Spring 2012
Ready-to-wear by Karl Lagerfield
Chanel have always awed the audience with it's stage pressence and for the masses to go baffled. The always dynamic Chanel led by Karl Lagerfield, recently launched it's Ready-To-Wear Spring-Summer collection for the year 2012. With Wind-Farms and Solar Panels in it's gigantic rampway, sure they have made heads turn. The large scale rampway not only grabbed attention but also it made the clothes give a edge over it. Lagerfield said that "Only the sun and the wind are free in this world", and by this he surely means to give an impression of Green Fashion making way towards a sustainable development by the label.
Talking about the collection, the silhouette was dominated by an A-line or a bolero. The graphics were new, textured and keeping up with their innovativeness, it had a range from Polka Dots to Stripy Shirts, from tubes, to skirts. The colour pallete varied from dark tones, which was mostly prominent, to shades of grey and tint of green and blue. In terms of accessory, the old style of braids and buttons made way for pearls and bags to their shelves. Also bringing along a huge bag made out of the logo of Chanel as its inspiration.
By far the most prominent feature and the cherry over the top feature of the catwalk, surely tend towards much. As the models walked the ramp aside the huge wind-farms, it made a statement but not for much and in the long run, it some-what made for a chaos. Lagerfield in the end made a statement that he was in love with the architecture and the message of sustainable energy made a particular statement overall. Afterall, "Energy is the most important thing in life" he added.
