I was watching the Chanel Fall/Winter 2012 collection and all those giant crystals on the set reminded of a video I watched recently on The Selby.
For this Fall collection, Lagerfeld indicated Nature “the greatest designer” as the starting point and inspiration to the collection. He mentioned the shapes of crystals, “milions of years old” and applied them on cuffs, trims and shoe heels. He explored the shine and reflection of these stones through different fabrics and shilhouettes and also explored some interesting polyhedron shapes in coats.
Some looks and details from the collection.
