Haute Couture Spring 2010: Chanel
"an electronic flash in my head at five o'clock one morning Silver and pastel,"said Karl Largerfeld to style.com. "It's the first time in my whole career I've done a collection without black or navy. There's not one gold button."
From the heart-shaped cartoonish hair to the horizontal bands of mille-feuille chiffon frills, minutely frayed at the edges, his collection was a soft romantic paradise for any girl looking for her feminine side.
The collection personally reminded me of Wendy from the book, play and animated film Peter Pan. Im not sure if it was the long silk garments, that gave a sense of a 1950's night gown or just the mix of youthful fun with a sophisticated femininity of growing up.
Overall i really adore the whole collection, as always Largerfeld captured the classic Coco Chanel designs while creating something new and beautiful to see.
