Welcome to the Chanel Shopping Center

Welcome to the Chanel Shopping Center!!! Grab a cart, get your fresh groceries, and enjoy a Fall 2014 show!

After walking through an Art Museum, to joining the ranch in Dallas, we now enter the Chanel Shopping Center. The vibrant hues of the products, reflect off the clothing throughout the collection. As Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld plays with: Tweed, Metallics, Knits, Embellishments, and this season’s hottest new style: The Baggy Pant. While we get a little taste of the artistic elements from the Spring collection. When the bell rings, saying that the Shopping Centre is closed, you know a splendid show is over.

Always looking forward to the Chanel show at the end of Fashion Week, Lagerfeld has most definitely impressed me, yet again. And who can’t get enough of Lagerfeld’s muse, Cara Delevingne?

Graphic Prints? Plaid? Cara Delevingne Taking a Selfie? All at Giles Fall 2014?

Well, that’s right! You obliviously know that a show becomes unbloggable, when Stars Wars and Graphic prints, Plaid, and 1 Cara Delevingne taking a catwalk selfie are present. For the inspiration, Gilles Deacon decides to look towards the birds, the leaves, the trees, and the future. As birds get embroidered on a sweater and Cocktail dress. Leaves look like statured molecules, when overlapping each other in a futuristicy way. While bugs give printed on feminine and frilly staples, such as ruffles and fringe. It may seem, that the collection may just be as out of this world as Alexander McQueen’s notable Fall 2009 collection, Deacon gives his collection a more Classy and wearable feel, incorporating styles, such as: plaid, high top moccasins, and even an oversize sweater.

Very vibrant tribal prints, plaids, and swirls dared to leave us all a lasting impression, Friday, at Suno.

Reminding me of Friday’s Helmut Lang collection, Prabal Gurung also seems to mix many different textures and prints together, seen at his show, Saturday afternoon. The only difference: Gurung incorporates tribal prints, Luxurious fabrics (thinking on the line of silk and feathers), more Dramatic and Vibrant hues, (aka some of my favorites, Navy and Tangerine), and bangled pumps, which are all that wearable on the beaches of Thailand as they would be for an evening cocktail on a Winter’s night in New York City.

Jill Stuart gives her signature feminine staples, a more Punk feel. When the Classic LBD and panty hose get bedazzled, a Furred red trench layers a sleeveless leather LBD, and a brown striped fur jacket and a Grapefruit knit sweater get edgy with baggy leather pants and wedges. Making me thank Stuart for the perfect inspiration to give my feminine wardrobe a little bit of a dramatic edge.
