Chanel presents “Country Chic”


If fashion shows and collections are supposed to take us on a journey, then it’s safe to say that Karl Lagerfeld has bought us a ticket to a fancy barn! The setting was decidedly ‘country’ at Chanel’s 2010 Spring show, complete with hay but no bumpkins, we promise!

Instead, Karl gave us a lesson on country charm and elegance; punctuated with details of basket weave, ruffles, aprons and florals. Feel-good silhouettes like puffed shoulders and full skirts were in full bloom and, just like the countryside, colors remained natural and uncomplicated with lots of black, whites and soft pinks. Flighty clothes were complemented with sturdy wooden clogs and, just to twist things up a bit more, Karl introduced a bit of black lace to the equation – bringing an unmistakable Chanel touch right to the barnyard!

Emerging Trends:

  • Full, poofy shoulders and skirts
  • Baby doll dresses
  • Simple colors of black, white and baby pink
  • Wooden clogs
