|The Crystal Pathway @ Chanel Fall 2012|
Just by seeing the Runway, I was already excited when I first saw the collection. Karl really inspired by the crystals which actually looked like the Krypton cave from the Superman movies. And he actually incorporated the crystals as models' eyebrows. The strips of crystal that defined each model's brows were a microcosmic rendition of the show's grand design.
The collection was consist of a proportion of a three-piece suit—jacket, skirt, and pants with midnight blue, black, burgundy, and grey colour, a number of dresses and blouses with pastel colours, bright blue, and purple-pastely prints. The inspiration also took place on the texture of the garments, such as jeans with the streaky grain of rock formations, in the knits that looked like layers of sediment, and in a scatter of moonstones across a sweater dress. Overall, I think this is a great collection.
