There was some classic vintage belle sleeping inside the mind of Karl Lagerfeld, inspiring his designs for Chanel‘s Fall 2010 Couture collection. By day she steps out in fur-trimmed coats and 40s silhouettes, understated and elegant. As night falls she becomes more elaborate and exotic, glistening with sequins and jewels and rich embroidery. There’s a fresh modernity to the simple red lips and wispy hair; but regardless of whether the outfit is understated or brimming with detail, the wrists are always dripping in bracelets and the boots are always a statement in themselves.
