Between his eponymous collection, designing for charity, and his role as designer of Chanel, it’s a wonder Karl Lagerfeld has a second to spare. In May, he sashayed to the scorching sands of Dubai, thrusting Chanel into the fashion forefront once again. From Dallas to Dubai, visionary extraordinaire Lagerfeld continues to take Chanel to breathtaking new heights. “I’m not a marketing person. I don’t ask myself questions. I go by instinct,” said Lagerfeld.
Leading the Arabian infused collection were the mix of awe-inspiring precious metals, costume gems, quilted oilcan handbags, and perfectly pinned crescent moons. “This collection is for every women. Better to do that than the sixties, the seventies, what everyone else does,” said Lagerfeld in his Style.com interview. “This is my idea of a romantic, modern Orient, a new One Thousand and One Nights,” he adds.
We completely agree. Unfortunately, the collection won’t arrive in stores until next season. But our instincts say the eastern goddess desert look will last a few seasons. Here are 8 Chanel accessories we can’t wait to get a hold of.
