Last Tuesday, Karl Lagerfeld showed his Chanel Haute-Couture Fall/Winter 2012 Collection at the Grand Palais in Paris, France. The collection was vintage inspired – elongated silhouettes and sparkling faux tweed in colors of nude to soft pink, classical black and grey adding to the nostalgic look and feel. Once again, Karl Lagerfeld proved that he is truly the king of haute couture.
One of the highlights of the show was a long sleeveless tweed coat, which is shown in the picture above, that took the Chanel’s craftsmen 3000 hours to make. Say that again? Yes, it took 3000 hours to make. Then I guess it makes sense why haute couture often comes with a price tag including 4 zero’s at the end
