Karl Lagerfeld is rather good at refreshing the standard Chanel fare season after season. For spring 2013 he gave boucle a cropped silhouette, turned quilting into evening wear, and produced youthful a-line dresses in typically Chanel textured fabrics.
But even more the stars of the collection are the accessories. Lagerfeld creates accessories that set their sights on being in every magazine, and on every member of the dedicated fashion pack. And again – the clear-brimmed hats, the hoop bags, the clusters of pearls, even a pair of sunglasses that Coco herself dutifully presides over in cameo form – will no doubt be editorial successes.
