Fall 09 Ready To Wear: Chanel

Karl Largarfeld tagged his Chanel Fall 09 collection with the title "Belle Brummell", a witty play on Beau Brummell, the 19th century British Reagent who dictated men's fashion of time by tying his cravats in ever more elaborate ways. I've recently become obsessed with Brummell's influence on fashion (thank-you Michael for the introduction), so it was no wonder this Chanel collection appealed so heavily to me. It was Chanel doing what Chanel does best, and in a season of somewhat turmulous shows, this is the way to keep things moving forward.
