Karl Lagerfeld from the house of Chanel likes three things about Russia: Constructivism, Russian folklore and Imperial Russia, including Catherine the Great and Faberge.

In this collection for "pre-fall" 2009, Lagerfeld and Chanel mix it all together in an awe-inspiring line that features simple coats, tweed suits with military accessories, tubular knits, and babushka shoulders.
