Chanel Pre- Fall 2012 Paris to Bombay

Karl Lagerfeld, the genius mind behind Chanel, surprised everyone with his Pre- Fall 2012 collection “Paris to Bombay”. Karl created the perfect mix of Chanel’s classic and chic style with elegant draping and embroidery inspired by Indian saris. It was interesting to see how Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by India, considering he has never been to India before. You’d never think putting on a structured jacket with traditional Indian jewelry would look appropriate, but Karl showed that anything is possible! The runway was set up as an extravagant dinner evening with candle lit tables, fruit baskets, and beautiful chandeliers. Bollywood stars like Freida Pinto and Sonam Kapoor were in the audience as well!
