Opulent Metallics & Fierce Fabrics - Chanel At Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week

The Chanel show is always a highlight of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week and this year's fall/winter collection did not disappoint.

Grand master Karl Lagerfeld took to the Grand Palais in Paris to showcase his amazing designs and the stately building was the perfect backdrop for his stunning bespoke pieces.

Embellishment always features strongly in Lagerfeld's collections and this line is no different. Futuristic metallics combine with intricate detailing to create a collection that can only be described as breath-taking.

The elegant Chanel suit is given a new-age makeover in an on-trend gold fabric with large buttons and a feminine cut, just gorgeous.

Excuse us while we go and weep in a corner while lamenting the fact that Chanel is WAY out of our budgets. Oh well, a girl can but dream...
