When Karl Lagerfeld reportedly said to Valentino, “compared to us, they’re all making rags”, he was, in my opinion, completely right!
I don’t find him the most likeable man, but great designer, studious historian, absolutely! Each collection for Chanel brings a new inspiration to life, and at the same time remains very “Chanel”, how does he do it? And, as always, his creations are utter works of art, simply majestic.
This year’s pre-Fall collection falls nothing short of my expectations. Inspired by Byzantian society, the collection is somewhere between ancient Greek draping and golden Egyptian decadence. Check out the collection on Vogue online.
