A Nod To Raj: Chanel Pre-Fall 2012

It is here!  It is here!  Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2012 Collection is here.

First and foremost, thanks to Veronica of Best of Palm Beach Consignment  who shares my love for Chanel.  for reaching out as soon as the photos were posted so that I could spend my afternoon marveling at Karl Lagerfeld’s latest creations.

And this was a feast for the eyes.  A feast of utter opulence.  Lamé, embroidery, jewels—it is all here.  Lagerfeld’s nod to Raj challenges the stigma of financial crisis and instead focuses his energy on inspiring.  After all, everyone needs a little spectacular in life.  Fortunately, Karl Lagerfeld, along with inspiring his Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 Collection, provides exactly that.

What do you think of the latest collection from Chanel?

P.S.  Am I the only one who thinks this styling is amazing?  I am off to give myself a very dark eye and an effortless-yet-impressive updo!

  5. You are so welcome. I mean when I saw this, I didn’t know who to call that would appreciate my excitement. Didn’t take long before I remembered our shared obsession. I sent you the first ever command tweet, basically ordering you to drop what you were doing and go to style.com. So glad you love it as much as I do.

  6. It’s a little over the top for me, but that blue dress is absolutely stunning!

  7. I like the blue dress and I can tell that the jewelry is gorgeous.

  8. OMG seriously my eyes were bulging out of my head when I got the second grouping of pictures & almost popped out at the final grouping. Beautiful!
