I have long been a fan of Chanel. The iconic purses and power suits captured my attention from a very young age. A few years ago, I saw a French film about Coco Chanel and was mesmerized. I loved her sassy character, her quick wit and willingness to push fashion boundaries. Above all, I was inspired by her ambition and success in a male dominated world. Though she is long gone, Chanel still has that something special.
This photos are from the Spring 2013 Paris Fashion Show. Karl Lagerfield, who is head designer for Chanel, has created rich and complex pieces that could actually be worn out! I love it when runway looks are something that I actually might wear.
