Chanel F/W 09

Chanel was one of the few shows of the Paris season that dared to go full steam ahead with a lush presentation, brimming with energy and the inimitable Coco charm. Held in the magnificent Grand Palais, the predominantly black and white collection drew from "dandy" influences, showing off little black Chanel hats, crepe and wool jackets, suits and dresses - all of which are this house's calling cards. Splashes of absinthe green and lively pink added zest to it all. As Karl Lagerfeld remarked at the end of the show, "I think green and pink are joyful colours, no? We seem to need it today." But what set every self-respecting fashionista's heart atwitter were the accessories: the casually flung knapsacks, see-through plastic purses, and the romantic embellishment of camelia corsages around the wrist and neck.
