I’m a fan of Chanel. But with respect to Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel couture collection which showed today, I am not a fan. The looks were dizzying in their incoherence: spider veins coming down jackets transitioned into sequined trousers, which in turn transitioned into 80’s proportions and skirt after skirt worn over pant after pant. It’s quite possible I just missed the point Mr. Lagerfeld was trying to make, but it’s also quite possible he tried to make way too many and lost his focus.
