It was an underwater theme for Chanel at Paris Fashion Week. Models marched down the under the sea clad catwalk to live music by Florence and the Machines, in textured fabrics, which gave a subtle nod to coral, while more obvious wet look and sheer fabrics gave a feel of the sea.
The iconic black shift frock was transformed for Summer 2012 thanks to pearls, which continued into the collection appearing as the pull on the zipper of cardigans on belts around cocktail dresses and as buttons on boucle jackets.
Handbags were also touched with the underwater theme fashioned into shell shapes while the structured jackets and skirts were given a floaty transformation thanks to sheer creamy floaty fabrics. We heart this collection.
