At Chanel, The Return of Ines!

This is fashion perfection!


Blogger five stones vintage said ... (7:06 AM) : 

breath taking.


Blogger Rosa said ... (7:07 AM) : 

it's amazing!!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:11 AM) : 

wonderful pictures.
Le grand spectacle as usual at Chanel. Kaiser Karl knows how to throw a big show. Love Ines back - she was and is so much more interesting than la Schiffer. Much more in the vein of a smart, strong woman a la Coco.


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (7:13 AM) : 

Ines de la Fressange? She's certainly one of my big style icons!

There is no other fashion show after this one...
A dream!

I know I will raise eyebrows, my girlfriend will "have headaches" every night for next 2 weeks and probably I will get my place in hell for saying that(Karl is the pope afterall), but I didnt like it.
Althought I realize the richness and the innovativeness of the materials, the semi couture finishings, the intricacy of the embroidery, the precisioon in the cut, there is something somber in the collection that gives me a not so pleasant feeling.
And the clunky shoes are in my opinion the ugliest I've seen this season.I really appreciate delicate shoes for women.those platforms are heinous.
Yes,as a show, it was beyond spectacular but the silhouete does not appeal to me.
Sweet Lord, please forgive me for my blasphemies.


Blogger Anaivilo said ... (7:31 AM) : 

Karl Lagefeld always put on a spectacular, classy show ! I adore these photos! Gorgeous; wish I was there..


Anonymous Olivine - Sur les pavés de Paris said ... (7:31 AM) : 

There is not a lot of color, it looks like winter ! But as it is Chanel, a lot of people would like that.
However, the decoration was really beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 AM) : 

It was great to see Inès de la Fressange again in a Chanel show.

She's one of Chanel's "Icons" to me.

I have a huge collection of her Chanel ads in the 80s.

AMAZING! Karl Lagerfeld is a genius and season after season gets it so right.. Impossible!


Anonymous Dana said ... (7:39 AM) : 

Ahh she's lovely. I've admired her since I was a little girl looking through Elle and Vogue in the eighties. She's wearing flats I see. I like that. We tall girls love our flats.

I have no words... I love it!!!!!!



Anonymous Don't be So French said ... (7:43 AM) : 

Wow Ines de La Fressange and Karl, I did not think the reunion would happen... Loved those two from a very early age, I used to cut the Chanel ads with her on it when I was 8!! As usual the show looks amazing, great photos!


Anonymous Marianne P said ... (7:47 AM) : 

Absolutely fantastic! Love it!


Blogger Bella HaHay said ... (7:48 AM) : 

Karl always finds way to take my breathe away. He's good at what he does best.

This is one of the best collection that Lagerfeld ever made and I really love it!!!!! The use of feather and other things...amazing!!!

How sweet is that kid, looking at the model walking the other way? If I had to walk such a catwalk as a 2-years-old, I would have been dead-scared!

I just have to say that I love the last photo the length, the sheerness, the sleeves of the dress on the left is amazing!!! I really enjoyed looking at pictures of this show. Thank you gor sharing your pictures with us.

Absolutely beautiful!


Anonymous pieter said ... (10:28 AM) : 

when one thinks of chanel nowadays, one only thinks of karl lagerfeld. but does he make any memorable clothes? no. only lagerfeld as a persona, these nice looking shows and the memory of coco chanel used for advertisement.


Anonymous Laila said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Brad Kroenig walking with his little boy! Karl must be jealousssss!


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (10:35 AM) :

Ha! Love the kid holding his father's hand and checking out the butt of the model walking past...

Anyway, love the clothes.


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (11:05 AM) : 

I've adored Ines from day one and Karl is certainly a genius, but I'd have to call this a weak collection. Very surprising on its own, but especially when compared to the other designers you've shot lately.


Blogger Noumia's papers said ... (11:24 AM) : 

I like that, karl lagerfeld is a genious ! Chanel is more fun and fresh with him.



Blogger Fasshionxenophile said ... (11:36 AM) : 

Ah, love it.

Love the whole new beast look nor icicle north pole bear look. ^^


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:40 AM) : 

I see money in these photoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:06 PM) : 

And how cute is Brad Koenig's son? I love the matching outfit when I saw it the other day. Overall the show looked flawless, but it ended up everywhere so I chose to write about McQueen's show instead. It was good, but overshadowed by Chanel.


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (12:08 PM) : 

Wow, this is gorgeous! I enjoyed seeing the little kid mixed in there. x


Anonymous jimjims said ... (12:29 PM) : 

what a great environment.

How has no one commented on the hat umbrella?? Adorable. I want one.And the gray jacket above it.

Why would the little boy be scared he gets to look at the pretty lady in the short shorts!

Wow! This whole collection is amazing, and the atmosphere is perfect... it looks like they all forgot about time passing.
Thanks for sharing!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

The 'hat' umbrella made me laugh, haha.

It's a great idea (though I'm reminded of the comedic huge-Darth-Vader-helmet effect in Spaceballs a little bit here).

They should make more umbrellas in the shape of other vintage Chanel hats. That would be great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

Hands down the *worst* shoes!


Anonymous Big M said ... (1:40 PM) : 

So glad Ines is back! Her own collections years ago were to die for. Sorry they never made it across the big pond.


Blogger Andrea said ... (2:02 PM) : 

I'm certain that I may be the cheese that stands alone with this comment but I'm not thrilled with the drastically dark turn Chanel has opted for. Though I this by no means is an indication of the richness and movement of the pieces.

What a beautiful umbrella!

so freakin jealous of you right now! you lucky thing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:25 PM) : 

This is the best post you've ever had. 1 because I adore her and 2 because my name is Ines and my mother named me after her because Ines helped my mom through my moms modeling years. This is amazing.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:32 PM) : 

I'm not sure what this says of the design this season at Chanel, but your photos, taken from a variety of angles and which highlight the grace and elegance of the clothing, make the collection much more palatable that the NYTimes' head-on shots.

Chanel will never disappoint. You are always amazed, always given the pleasure of seeing the delicateness and detailing of each piece. I've expressed my amazement on my blog with my review on the show. But anyway, Chanel, je t'aime.


Anonymous jdit said ... (6:50 PM) : 

That shot of the child looking up at the ruffles going by is absolutely priceless!


Anonymous Sian said ... (7:54 PM) : 

Surprisingly, me too I only really like the dramatic outfit on Pivovarova. I'm a fan of Ines' but that robe she's wearing almost looks like a nightgown to me.


Blogger KC said ... (8:34 PM) : 

oh chanel always makes THE show but i'm not feeling those platforms.

the little kid is sooo adorable.

Ines is gorgeous and deserves to be on the catwalk! She really adds an extra dash of class to Chanel (and this IS Chanel we're talking about so that's saying a lot!)
The man walking with the little boy is adorable! There's a reason to have a child -- to dress it as a Chanel mini-me!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:05 AM) : 

I'll just say it. Karl looks ridiculous. He should lose the indoor sunglasses and the pink lipstick, get a haircut, and throw on a nice dark tee shirt. The high collar, pony tail, and fingerless gloves make him look like a stork.
