Chanel Pre-Fall '09 - Paris to Moscow

OK so most of us are still trying to get our Winter wardrobes right but if you are a major fashion house, there's no time to wait about. Chanel has just presented its pre-Fall '09 collection inspired by Russia, called 'Paris to Moscow'. As you can see, even the graphics and setting were very Russian.

Karl Lagerfeld also debuted a taster of his his silent movie dedicated to Coco.

Although of course held in Paris, the gorgeous couture collection featured Russian military jackets, fur hats, coats and boots and Russian doll style embossed hand muff. It was particularly exciting to see such an injection of colour to the usually monochrome classic Chanel style. The burnt orange/red colours add to the luxurious feel of the collection which is at the same time, all very wearable. Beautiful.
