Chanel's pre-Fall showing was an Elizabethan-inspired collection in pouffy short tweed skirts, ruffled collars & sleeves, all very warm yet comfy clothings.
It's Fall/Winter showing is actually more polished and worldly, with patent black or white details and smart-looking reds & blues. Everything's still sparkly though :)
There is also the high-low cutting on the jackets to dresses, where its cut shorter in front and longer on the back. Silhouettes are feminine but not form fitting and swingy, so it'll be lots of fun to wear.
Chanel Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013 is decidedly more light-hearted with pastels and creams dominating. It is also filled with crowd pleasers like the classic 2 piece suits it is famous for and camellia emblazoned dresses. One accessory we can't do without this season is the sparkly slouchy hats, gimme gimme!
