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?!
