Russian Revelry

Chanel's latest couture collection for Fall 2010 is a definite change from the iceberg runway that we saw in spring.  This collection has a darker more structural feel to it, reminiscent of the military.  This is off-set though by the embroidery and embellishments from fur to jewels that give the collection the luxe feel that has become synonymous with Chanel.  You can also see a Russian fairy-tale quality to the clothes that contrasts nicely to the sometimes severe proportions.   The girlish make-up and wind-blown hair are in contrast to the restrained luxury of the collection but are a nice touch and keep it grounded in the dream-world Lagerfeld has so aptly created at Chanel.
