With the release of Chanel’s Pre-Fall Collection for 2012, it seems that creative director, Karl Lagerfield, has developed a taste for Indian. Gilded tunics, sumptuous silks, and skinny British Empire leggings melted into slim booties and embellished sandals. Hair jewels, thong-like bracelets and printed fingerless gloves compiled a list of characteristically Indian adornment, while Chanel classics like tweed suits and pearls exported the looks to their Parisian home front.
