As Coco Chanel once quoted, ” Fashion is at once both caterpillar and butterfly. Be a caterpillar by day and a butterfly at night…There must be dresses that crawl and dresses that fly.”

Well, the Chanel 2011 Couture presentation was full of cankers and fab flyers…

With satin chokers and the usual assortment of textures (tweed, silk, beading, etc.), the show was a compilation of resplendent revelry. From the diaphanous fabrics adorned with intricate pattern and/or beading, to the signature tweed sets paired with sequin knickers, the show displays Karl Lagerfeld’s consummate talent.
