In Soviet Russia, fashion owns you!
































































Maybe designers at Chanel watched same discovery channel special on the Romanov Family as I did because this czar-inspired collection definitely CHANnELS the princes and princess' of the empirical russian family.  Military inspired sweaters, fur trapper hats, heavy tweeds and elaborate head-wear littered the runway, with a color theme of bright orange-y reds and black. Even some of the prints looked like the rooftops of a Russian skyline.  

My favorites? The accessories! An awesome fan, that looks to be made of material, fashioned after russian nesting dolls and a black and red fur muff with that signature CC logo. 
Even the model line-up featured mainly russian girls.  Is this an extreme use of target marketing or what?!
