Karl Lagerfeld is known for his extravagant shows, filled with the finest of all creations. He is truely a fashion genius and this is my homage to King Karl. Unlike any other runway shows, Karl’s Chanel’s Cruise 07 show took over New York’s Grand Central Terminal’s Metrazur restaurant. The show brought in the Devil who wasn’t wearing Prada Anna Wintour, Mischa Barton, Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, and Maria Bello. As for the fashion it was all about classic, sheik and simplicity. The “it” colors were solid, which ranged from black, white, pink and the nudes. The clothing ranged from the traditional tweed suits mixed with hip couture shorts. Cocktail numbers were on Karl’s mind, since most of the dresses were short, chiffon and had mademoiselle Coco’s favorite embroidered chain links.
In my opinion, the hottest items from this show are Karl’s revision of the denim. Karl created the wide leg denim dungarees and topped it off with a logo print shirt. I think this is going to be the trendiest look of the season! As for the Men, the trend is all about denim jeans along with a polo print shirt.
It was hard not to ignore the shoes the models were sporting. The high heel boots were substituted by knee high gladiator sandals. The accessory look was all about models sporting armloads of bangles, shoulder duster earrings, ribbons in the hair and glamorous hats.
I think Karl did a brilliant job and I don’t know what else he can create to beat this. Than again its Karl, he always recreates the old, the classic the good!
