Chanel Pre-Fall 2011

Earlier today in Paris, wisps of history entwined with modernism escaped at the Chanel boutique on Rue Cambon. A glimpse of French Pre-Fall 2011 fashion. For inspiration, Mr. Karl Lagerfeld went back into the Byzantine era to revisit with Empress Theodora. Calling her the Coco Chanel of her time, he brought back her imperial likeness to the strong + confident woman of 2011.
