Paris Spring 2011 RTW: Chanel

The Chanel Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear show with its 87 looks was, to me, a let-down. The color palette was, for the most part, black and white, with a few exceptions of light pink, light blue, light yellow, and peach. There were the expected Chanel jackets, many of them modernized and reinvented, as well as some lovely dresses. The collection also included some perplexing duds and, as a whole, left me dissatisfied.

The Top Notes:

The Sour Notes:

Too dowdy — nothing about this says Chanel to me.

Micro-mini shorts. With a Chanel jacket. Who but a 20 year-old supermodel can pull off a look like this? And why would anyone want to. Blech!

Post-apocalyptic Holly Hobbie — none of the pieces on this poor model relate to one another, and between the leather gloves and leggings, the jacket bedazzled to kingdom come, the frowsy floral dress and orthopedic shoes... this look is a complete disaster and probably has poor Coco turning in her grave.

When has Chanel ever done other colours than black, white and pastels? It would be nice to see some more adventurous looks. Definitely agree with your last look - not exactly inspiring!

Disappointed in Chanel! They were also ill fitting.
