A cross between shabby chic and vintage elegance with Chanel's AW11/12 Accessories. I can only imagine the type of money one of those hair pins costs! Is Karl Lagerfeld bringing back Biker Boots for next winter? Can't they just go away...please! And as for the mid-heel, well as a girl of 5 foot 2 I can not conform to a mid-heel.
It wouldn't be Chanel without that trademark frayed tweed tailoring and quilted something or another. But this collection had added styling with an array of fingerless gloves in knitted and lace fabrics. Hence the shabby chic. Can you imagine wearing thousands of pounds worth of embellishments mixed with fagan-esque gloves and boots? Something for the weekend perhaps...
I'm often drooling over Chanel accessories (I'm not sure I'll ever be able to afford any) but maybe it's the vintage ones that truly are the best. What are your thoughts?
