Chanel Haute Couture FW11/12*

"Circa. 5 July 2011
Grand Palais, Paris.
per Karl Lagerfield."

Featuring amazing fabrications and techniques I am too amateur to identify. The colour palette was predominantly black, white and grey with a splash of fuchsia and royal deep blue. Simply true to Chanel.  And might I dare say, markedly better than the Dior Haute Couture FW11/12.

To set the scene, let us turn back time to 1897 when construction began for the Grand PalaisBuilt in the style of architecture as taught by the École des Beaux-Arts. It reflects the movement's taste for ornate decoration through its stone facades, the formality of its floor planning and a glass vault.



Extracted below are my favourites among the favourites, although I adored every look in the collection!
