Chanel Details, Spring 2010

I case you haven't seen it, here is a wonderful silent film from Youtube showing Chanel's spring line, with a focus on the details that make it special. For me, the high points are the raw-edged chiffon (which could so easily be replicated with an inexpensive vintage scarf and a sharp pair of scissors), the lovely floral embellishment on the straps of a dress (here, all you'd need is a length of decorative ribbon and an ability to tack with needle and thread), and the gorgeous wheaten embroidery in gold against black velvet (don't try this at home, guys, leave it to the experts at Lesage . . . )

(many thanks to AdoreVintage for the tip!)
