Chanel Fall 2013 Collection

Of course I couldn’t go through a runway season without discussing my all time favorite design house: Chanel!  Again, I can’t help but marvel at the ingenuity of Karl Lagerfeld, who earlier in the season showed 40+ looks for the Fendi Fall 2013 Collection, now showed about 80 looks at the Chanel Fall 2013 show!  This of course begs the questions: does this man ever sleep?  Also, can I have some of what he’s drinking?

The Chanel show did not disappoint.  There were many examples of Lagerfeld’s love for fabric manipulation, for example, tweeds were made to look like embroideries and vice versa.  And with 80 or so looks there was a vast array of shapes.  I was especially fond of the shorter hemlines and thought the interpretation of thigh-highs were both modern and flattering.

Inevitably the jackets made me swoon (this is Chanel after all!).  I was especially fond of the flipped up hemline detail which created an interesting pocket effect.

There was also several standout layered looks, where volume showed up in unexpected ways.

Some of my absolute favorite pieces were the dresses.  From chunky knits to more body conscious designs, I could imagine feeling pretty amazing in any of these looks.

And if all that wasn’t enough, the Chanel Fall 2013 collection showcased some of the most impressive jewelry we’ve seen this season.  I especially loved the large column necklaces!


Alright, enough of my Chanel lovefest!  Let me know if Lagerfeld’s extra large collection filled your heart as well…

  1. I saw this on and I immediately thought of you. My daughter is also crazy for Karl. Me, I have love hate with the brand but think Karl is genius. If I have a good year maybe I will splurge for the “crazy” chain boots. I love it. I initially loved classic Chanel, but Karl’s is staying current with the market and the fashion forward nista’s like yourself. No I wasn’t surprised to see your first post today being Chanel!

  2. Wow, I am also super stunned at the amount of work that is being produced by Karl Lagerfeld. That is a lot of looks–and they are all pretty amazing. Also, if you ever do find out what he’s drinking, I expect you to share the secret!

  3. I really love that blue coat!

  4. I was awaiting thinking is she going to cover Chanel … of course I love this, mostly because I crave cobalt and adore jackets. The convertible wearing is a nice styling touch with the rolled up sleeves and leather/hardware elements. :)

  5. I am loving those boots. I always though thigh high boots look really tragic especially when worn the way I’ve seen them, but here they look totally cool and covering

    I love the blue, black, white and pink palette! So pretty!

  7. The details and accessories were what captured my interest at Chanel. I really don’t know how Karl manages to do all an impressive number of collections and hundreds of looks every year. But I can not help thinking that sometimes it would be better to limit himself to less than 80 looks/per collection.

  8. The shows and collections just keep getting better and better. Love it. Thanks for posting the spread and feel free to drop by me too when you have time.

  9. I love Chanel and this collection is just gorgeous, love the black and white with a hint of blue. So chic!
