karl and chanel

the fashion gods might strike me down for saying this, but here we go: don’t get me wrong, Karl Lagerfeld is an absolute genius, but occasionally, i look at pieces in a Chanel collection and think: “what the hell are you thinking, Karl? this is not what Coco would have wanted!”(because, you know, we were bff’s)

not this time. his pre-fall 2011 collection is one of my favorite i’ve ever seen from him. he said his inspiration came from Theodora¬†the empress of the Byzantine empire. just as Coco started off as a singer at a bar, Theodora started off as a circus performer…both soared to greatness.

here are a few of my fav’s:
