Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2007/2008

Torrential rain threatened to end the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2007 /08 show before it even started. But as they say in show business, the show much go on. And on it did.

Karl Lagerfeld’s latest Haute Couture collection for Chanel blended sharp silhouettes with luxury materials, delicate embroidery, beading and layers of ruffles. Oh and did I mention the capes? Capes were made out of the fluffiest feathers and often attached to the gowns, making the model look like she could take off any second. Floor length gowns had their hems ruined as they were walked through the puddles, but the focus was never on them.

Check out the beauty of the Chanel Haute Couture for yourself – I can talk until I’m blue in the face, but beauty is really in the eye of the beholder. Keep and eye out for the pants / leg warmers that was so long that it would cover most of the shoe, and the bejeweled hoods.
