Who am I to disregard the artisitic and visual skills of Karl Lagerfeld, right? I'm not aclaimed fashion critic nor Anna Wintour. Yes, I'm that girl that in today's world prefers her merch and jeans and sweaty pubs. But in my ideal world, where I would have money of the world, I would be the girl that owns vintage Chanel, lives in France and enjoys her morning coffee from the balcony that has view of the busy streets of Paris.
So if we all view me as my ideal me, I would still say that the only way I would spend my money on Chanel is if it was vintage and by vintage I don't mean last season.
Seriously, what happened to Chanel? What happened to the idea that all women should feel comfortable, screw (excuse me for my language) what the sociaty thinks. Coco Chanel did not become the fashion legend because she kept to being a female, she broke the rules. For God's sake she was that woman that wore trousers and oversized sailor t-shirts to the beach or horse riding and got shady looks from others. (These facts are true, I have unhealthy obsession about Gabrielle's life, don't judge!)
Coco made women feel like it is possible to feel comfortable and at the same time look like they are worth even more than hundred dollar bills. They had elegance, grace, style and confidence only because they were not worried if the dress is too tight, or the skirt too short that they goodies may be on show. They felt confident because while looking like pearls they also felt comfortable.
So really what happened to Chanel is Karl Lagerfeld. The S/S 2014 ready-to-wear looks horrid. The colours, the designs and cuts, I feel like Coco herself would change her name so no one would know that this is what her brand is now.
From 89 looks I would only not mind 5 looks. Thoughts? Am I being too judgmental or Chanel has changed big time?
