Chanel’s Crystal Fall :: Chanel Fall Collection 2012

The Crystal Forest = a labyrinth of smokey quartz + amethyst mines.

Enormous shards of smoky quartz and amethyst, rising from sands of crystal like stalagmites in a giant’s cave, set the mood chez Chanel, where Karl Lagerfeld was thinking about minerals, from the crystal-crusted eyebrows to the crystal fragments jutting from the top of the faceted clear-crystal heels.

The runway was layered in white glittery sand that sparkled like snow and the clothes were glamorous and futuristic mixing feathers, metallic tweeds and and crystal embellishments inspired by the freshness of the lotus flower.
