The Chanel Spring Couture 2013 runway showcase took place in the Grand Palais, a Parisian landmark transformed for fashion magic.
This season, Karl Lagerfeld is inspired by the mystical happenings of an enchanted forest to create a collection that flirts with fantasy. Gothic references complimented each pale frock sported by the frail models. The delicate motifs like lace, embellishment and ribbon tweeds were accented by Lagerfeld's focus on framed shoulders.
These tailored accents paired with thigh-high boots added the right amount of edge, making for a dynamic combination. The fashion house consistently sets a standard for masterfully imagined collections -- this was no exception. Chanel Spring Couture 2013 delivers an on-point interpretation of haute goth with the inventiveness that inspires fascination for Kaiser Karl.
