Chanel 2009: Snow White and Ebony Ravens


My eye is always soothed and invigorated by 3D color on color. And this season Chanel is thrilling me.

Look at the beautiful use of texture,

the unexpected pop of black,


this gorgeous raven out for an evening (just look how her capelet approximates feathers!),



and Snow White departing for a lunch date.



I am content.

Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

The head dresses might be my favorite. So ornate--much more than a headband, I'd say.

As insane as I think Karl Lagerfeld is I'm always in awe of his creativity. Year afer year he brings out beautiful collections.

I'm not normally a Chanel fangirl but those head pieces stopped me dead in my tracks.
