Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2011

If you are a wealthy seventy year old woman who likes to dress her age, then this collection is for you. But if not, you are out of luck. It is rare that I completely dislike a Chanel collection, but I really couldn’t find anything to love here. The tailoring was heavy, with big shoulders and too many peplums, the eveningwear was tacky and often looked like interpretations of bad eighties prom dresses, and there was none of the light, intricate, flattering pieces we come to expect from Chanel.

I love… nothing. Sad face.

I loathe…

the cut of this suit, especially the shoulders.

an overdose of peplums.

a frightfully unattractive dress.

    Jumping jehosaphat! All I see when I look at the last few numbers is ‘House of Deréon’. And that is not good.

    When models look fat, there’s no hope for the rest of us.

    Tell me about it! But let’s face it, there’s no hope for us when it comes to owning Chanel haute couture!
