Presenting: Fashion Week: Chanel S/S '08

Presenting: Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Spring/Summer Collection 2008

From sequin-embellished bags to hard case Evening clutches in the shape of gemstones with crystal embellishments and details, the theme "Shiny, Shiny, Shiny!!" in Bagaholic Babe's opinion, is suitable for Chanel's S/S '08 Collection.

Whilst other designers seem to be using a bright, bold and striking colour palette for their S/S '08 collections (Fendi, Marni, Christian Lacroix, etc), Chanel seems to have opted for a more monochromatic colour scheme. Perhaps it was due to Chanel's uncharacteristic use of bright colours for their Fall/Winter 2007 Collection which resulted in this seeming reversal of seasons? It's befitting to say (in Bagaholic Babe's opinion), that Chanel's S/S '08 Collection is more suited to the F/W '07 and vice versa. Makes the brand's F/W '07 Collection seem more fun. Hm, what do YOU think?

The Verdict: Chanel has always been associated with timelessness and elegance. That may be so, but come Spring/Summer 2008, this monochromatic collection will be lost amidst the sea of flourescent colours that the other uber-designers have opted for. C'mon it's Spring! Let's welcome sunshine, rainbows and yes, that means and injection of colour!
