CHANEL PRE-FALL 2012

I never understand the fascination and hoopla on pre-collections. For me they are just excessive, and just taking away the excitement of waiting for the fashion houses' offering for next season collection. I guess it just one of those necessities that got added when fashion industry had shifted more on the business side. Now designers have to come up with 6 great collections every year.

Karl Lagerfeld went to days of the Raj for inspiration for Chanel “Paris-Bombay” pre-fall 2012 collection. Here are the pictures of some of the menswear from the show and veteran supermodels Stella Tennant and Yasmin Lebon.


Soundtrack: Playlist by Michel Gaubert

2) “My Sweet Lord” by George Harrison
3) “Good Day Today” by David Lynch

"A PRECIOUS PASSION" DOLCE & GABBANA JEWELLERY 2011 VIDEO

"Giampaolo Sgura directs Bianca Balti and Simone Nobili for Dolce & Gabbana Jewellery video. A statement of faith, a wave of passion, or a celebration of love: the most precious feature of any jewel is the emotion it stirs in the woman who wears it. For their first ever jewellery collection, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have combined the most exquisite materials -- tri-colour gold, rubies, sapphires and pearls -- with the most significant symbols at their disposal."
