Paris Fall 2012: Chanel

After diverting one's attention from the elaborately bejeweled eyebrows and glittering, giant hunks of faux gems behind the mods on Chanel's runway this morning, Karl Lagerfeld's latest warranted some serious ogling. On the menu for Fall: new takes on that canoncial tweed suiting mingled alongside sheer slate-hued trou, particularly pretty frock-and-pants combos, and strong sweater-esque calf-dusters for warmth (and/or drama). Save for the excellent, and exceedingly wearable, looks in noir and grey, the palette was a thematically relevant mix of jewel tones (rubies, amethysts, emeralds, sapphire, et al). As a seasonally sound counterpoint to last season's pearlescent traipse of pastels on the catwalk, Lagerfeld dabbled in more off-kilter pairings this time around. Exhibit A: a nubby moss green hue peeking out as a cowl neck and slim pants from under a royally purple topper; also, a mustard pants and boxy, buttoned skirt combo. But the pieds deserved a lingering glance or three as well, given those instantly waitlist-worthy, asymmetrical ombre takes on the Mary Jane.
