Chanel Spring Summer 2014

Yawn. This Chanel show is mediocre at best. Out of ninety looks, I couldn’t find anything to love. Move along people, nothing to see here.

I love…

The eye makeup.

I loathe…

that the first fifteen looks of this show were boring tweed outfits.

when Chanel uses the Lululemon logo on their dresses.

that this outfit, on its own, could be from a million different boring designers. Chanel is supposed to be above that.

    Have you noticed that Chanel Pre-Fall and Cruise collections are usually more interesting than the ones they show at Fashion Week?

  • alexandrasuhnerisenberg

    No, because I don’t have the mental capacity to look at four seasons of fashion shows a year. It is too much, so I ignore pre-fall and cruise. That said, I have heard that those are the seasons that sell the most, are on the shop floor for the longest, and are most profitable. So I wouldn’t be surprised if they were the nicest. Maybe I need to change my strategy…

    I’ve always liked Cruise – les fady and more timeless.

  • Cheryl W.

    The Pre-Fall collections are way better.

    Marc Jacobs OUT at Louis Vuitton…you think he’ll succeed Karl at some point? Will his own brand improve now?

  • alexandrasuhnerisenberg

    God I hope he never succeeds Karl, that is a terrifying prospect. And no, I don’t think his own brand is going to get better because he is doing an IPO which means there are going to be shareholders to please – and that means more ugly bags and perfumes.
