Chanel Couture Fall 2008

Cartridge pleat treatment controlling the waist. Tiny fringe at the hems.

Lovely oversized coat, and shoulder emphasis without huge shoulders.

Same cartridge pleats, but this time at the hem also.

Zippers and chinchilla are quite the pairing. A nice coat/dress combination.

I can't say I care for the effect produced by cartridge pleating on the shoulder and sleeve, but it is interesting.

The Military influence continues.

This charmingly applied pattern is just like a wrought-iron fence.

A lovely coat.

A very casual, active-wear cut, and smocking at the waist. The rolled hem is a wonderful detail. This is so cute in a wool bouclé and would be very wearable for anyone. Detail shot of the seaming and smocking below.

Getting a little wild now with the hem, but the tunic would make a great dress.


The sleeves do look very cute.

Sophisticated yet demure in gray, and what a sweet and very unexpected hood.

A different kind of volume with applied petals as ruffles.

Lots of this tubular stuff which I think is really fun!

A wonderful look with flattened chevron smocking at the center waist. Detail below.

Very 1930's Hollywood Glamour shoulders, and very nice.

A simple silhouette, and so wearable in any length or fabrication.

A beautiful raised neckline with flattened smocking controlling the bodice and opening into the skirt fullness.

I love the bodice's applied design that creates a new fabric. See the detail below.
