Has the man gone mad?  With the fashion mood for luxurious classics and investment pieces, Karl Lagerfeld has introduced his Pre-Fall 2011 collection for Chanel which couldn't carry more embellishment if he tried.  These are not classics with a contemporary twist to update them (although one or two pieces in the collection do fall into this category thank goodness) but out and out OTT pieces.  Witness the image below.  I fear Coco will be turning in her grave ....although of course the fashion mafia may love this collection.  Who can tell!
And, incidentally, isn't Pre-Fall 2011 rather jumping the gun  - notwithstanding the trend for Holiday, Resort, and Mid Season collections riding high.
