Chanel Haute Couture Spring Summer 2011
This Chanel collection does not feel very haute couture, which I find quite distressing. The whole purpose of these garments is to do something amazing and fabulous, which cannot be done with “regular” clothing (because it costs too much.) There were very few pieces in this show that screamed “I am expensive!” and that is the whole point of couture. Not jeans and a little tweed jacket.
a very simple, beautiful shift dress.
a loose black raglan sleeve dress.
an elongated tutu worn with a loose couture "tee."
a strangely beautiful puffed sleeve.
that Chanel is also doing shiny leggings. They sort of work with Armani Privé's futuristic theme, but this looks a bit silly.
that this looks like an outfit you can buy from Primark.
a dress that doesn't look suitable for anyone over the age of 6.
what looks like a cheap raincoat and a plastic dress. Sure, it might be heavily embroidered with crystals or something, but it doesn't look like its worth more than $100 from here.
