The look Karl Lagerfeld continued to rejuvenate the Chanel house with this spring 11 offering as he distressed twin sets and put more than 80 looks onto the catwalk.
Key pieces An envelope-collar, three-quarter length sleeve jacket stood out, as did the distressing of long-line knits, which looked like they’d been torn into by moths. Pleated tulle was used to decorate the front of camisoles and a red and black floral print injected drama.
Commercial appeal Feather trims on dresses had broad appeal as did Lagerfeld’s commitment to the knee-length hemline and his distressed grey denims. Sheer underskirts also featured, as did knitted hot pants.
Footwear and accessories Lagerfeld plundered his own style and the models wore fingerless gloves. Standout footwear lasts came in the form of geisha-style platforms or biker boots.
