Karl Lagerfeld’s Couture Embroiderers Were So Overwhelmed by the Beautiful Clothes That They Cried at the Spring 2011 Show

By

Yesterday Karl Lagerfeld showed a magical spring 2011 couture collection that included jeans under jackets and skirts, flats that shocked the world, and loads of masterful embroidery and beading, all done by hand, of course. In a Chanel-produced video, Karl discusses these highlights. The flats are supposed to be reminiscent of what one wears "on the beach," he tells the interviewer. The shoes were "like slippers but with just a little fixing around the ankle which is transparent." He continues, "I am getting tired of the way the girls walk in those high shoes. One saw a lot of it so maybe it’s time to see something else."
