Chanel and China!?

As I was surfing through the internet looking for the newest in the Fashion World, I decided to go to and loom at the newest collections.
My pick:
Chanel Pre-Fall 2010
To my surprise it was not what I expected, no pale colored exquisite/elegant clothing pieces BUT looks that were to be compared with the "chinese style."
The models were wearing Qipaos (traditional chinese dress) and straw hat formed "head gear." The colors could be defined as extreme and were in tones of red, green, black and blue.

Karl Lagerfeld described this collection would have been inspired by imagining Coco Chanel going to China in the 1930-1940's and the fantasies on this trip.
I personally found the collection surprising and interesting. Yet I found Karl Lagerfelds view of it very impressing and fascinating. The collection itself will only come out in May, meaning we will have to wait a little but as we figured the year goes by quickly.
Au revoir and see you soon!
