Karl loosely referenced Rajasthan in a surprisingly rich and full Pre-Fall Collection for ChanelFilled with wearable suits and new proportions for day, lux fabrics, and interesting beading, this show wasn’t filled with leftovers.  It did what a Pre-Fall Collection should do: hint at a fresh direction.Floaty and ephemeral at moments, dark, mysterious, and layered at others…

…with occasional moments of red and pink.Congratulations Mr. Lagerfeld on one of the best collections of the season.
