When I talked about the fashion trend in accessories for Spring/Summer 2010, I intentionally left behind a prominent designer name - Chanel. I felt Chanel deserved a separate post with pictures from the collection. I really liked the line, which was very much traditional tweed/romantic chic feel with a fairytale spell.
Flowers appear to be an important inspiration for the designer as we see them in jewelry (and a saw a lot of beautiful pieces), shoes and bags. A lot of the purses looked like a piece of jewelry. Embellishments on clothes and belt added more to the romantic, princess-like silhouette.
Again, we saw big bangles and ornate bracelets, necklaces and rings.
Not surprisingly, we saw the signature ornate leggings. I am rarely a big fan of these, but this time i found Chanel's idea very charming. The 'kind-of-edgy' leggings counterbalanced the 'little-red-hat' image to create a very interesting look.
There were quite a few minis in various colors - whites and pastels, but also more dramatic black dresses and black-and-whites.
Suits were also making a hit comeback (as was the case in most other designer collections).
