Inspired: Chanel S/S 1994

It is no secret that I am in LOVE with the house of CHANEL. I have always loved the classic CoCo LBD, Suits and costume jewelry. I personally think Karl Lagerfeld is a BEYOND a fashion icon and is a creative genius.

I could really flash back to EVERY collection and site elements to become inspired by.  Yes it is fall but I'm looking at Spring/Summer .. 1994.

I adore the colours and textures of this collection, the nude/black shoes, the short skirt suits, the suspenders and of course the roller skates. The brooches are amazing as usual and nice to see the pops of colour styled on the runway in the models hair. It looks like people's love today for the contemporary coloured coiffure's, hair pieces and dipped ends.

The handbags and accessories took a really interesting direction as well; bold colours, plastic colourful chains replacing the traditional gold tone hardware on both belt and bags and whip stitching and trims in bright contrasting hues.
