Chanel Hits Dallas

Yeeeeeehaw!!!!!!!! Karl Lagerfeld presents Chanel‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection in Dallas, bringing an array of Rodeo, Native American, and Cowgirl inspired ensembles. 56 years after Coco Chanel, herself, spent time in Dallas declaring that she will start designing Haute Couture again. In my opinion, Lagerfeld couldn’t have picked a better time to present a collection in Dallas, as fringe, animal prints and furs of all kinds, and Knee-high Equestrian boots have pretty much been dominating the runways. At Chanel, the theme was high fashion mixed with the fashions of Dallas. As tweed gets paired with fringe, feathers, Cowgirl hats, and Cowboy boots. Ponchos and bohemian inspired printed skirts and sweaters get paired with the Equestrian boot. Sheer and Sparkly evening gowns get a bohemian print, and are dressed down when paired with a denim jacket. While ruffles and frills also get dressed down with denim. Rodeo gal outfits leave me obsessed, (especially the blue Rodeo gal look that Sigrid Agren sported, which even Zac Posen swooned about last night on Instagram). And ponytails are finished off with Chanel feathered hairpieces. The outcome: Just one Stunning Chanel show.

Mixing Rich Staples at Fendi Pre-Fall 2014

As Thanksgiving Break has sadly come to an end, and the 25 Days of Christmas countdown is going on. Karl Lagerfeld decides to leave us all obsessed with Fendi‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Like Lagerfeld has been doing lately at Fendi, the collection shows off a very artistic and structural twist to it. This time, mixing some of my favorite rich staples for Fall. Including tweed trenches, draped with graphically cut fabrics, a oxblood and white leather jacket, must-have fur and feather boots and accessories, striped fur jackets, leather pants, and Ski-inspired silhouettes. All, into a must-have collection. Making me wish I were in the Austrian Alps.
