Last Year at Marienbad

I had professed my love for both Chanel and Alexander McQueen on their Spring 2011 collection but I had not posted Chanel's entire runway show. Allow me to do just that on this post.

Last Year at Marienbad - the title of Chanel Spring 2011 (and this post, too) comes from a 1961 movie of the same name, an avant-garde film done in a surrealism manner (Read: Inception circa 1960's), where dreams and reality are blended into it. On to Chanel show: The outifits shown are classics done in new fabrics. Karl had reconfigured the classic suit into A-line jacket paired either shorts or skirts and done in spring colors. Towards the ending, a slew of little black dresses paraded down the runway. On that note, the runway was huge! It features three water fountains, an 80-piece orchestra on one end, and a black and white (and a little gray) garden of epic proportions. Want proof?

The 80-orchestra provided the music for the runway show.


Here are some runway photos.
