Opulent Revival Ensembles
The Chanel Couture Fall 2012 Collection Revamps Coco's Classics

The Chanel Couture Fall 2012 collection channels the great Coco Chanel, revamping the classics that made this fashion house what it is today. Karl Lagerfeld defined the series as “new vintage,” which pays homage to staple Chanel items emulated by designers and brands around the world.

Classic jackets have been reconstructed with ladylike pink and grey patchwork tweed and waist-cinching statement belts. Tulle has been incorporated in unexpected places, with bits spilling out from jacket and skirt hemlines. The show-stopping ball gown worn by Lindsey Wixson is an ode to the aristocrats, with its billowing skirt and hair-grazing collar. Thousands of hours have gone into producing this lavish, handcrafted showcase.

To celebrate the series, Lagerfeld hosted a garden party for the Chanel Couture Fall 2012 collection.
