Chanel Pre-Fall 2016 Is Perfect For the Classy Broad in You Who Still Knows How To Be Sexy
For my review of Karl Lagerfeld’s short film starring Kristen Stewart, click here.
There’s a lot of leather and lace, with slave chokers casually thrown into the mix, because the Chanel woman is a lady and a freak. I love that you can see slouchy menswear in the same collection as kitschy, pink petal dresses. A blue petal dress worn over a white collar blouse with a patent leather skinny tie is a beautiful marriage of the two personas.
You see the ensembles gradually progress from wife to cocktail waitress to kinky mistress. I was especially fond of the pearl embellished pumps and strappy heels. The lace tights and fingerless opera gloves worn under tweed dresses are also punk as f-ck.
Menswear is sexy. Flouncy princess dresses are sexy. You can be a politician and a pole dancer. Basically, Chanel becomes the wearer, and I love it that much more for that.
