Fashion: Karl Lagerfeld Makes Couture Realistic

This is my ode to Uncle Karl–the unabashed fashion authority who has a thing for black-and-white, his personal time and his cat Choupette. I’m unsure what Mr. Lagerfeld’s mood boards have looked like the past couple of seasons, but one thing is for certain, Chanel’s couture collections have seemed to mingle with ready-to-wear, making the past two couture seasons some of the most-talked about collections. In the fall, fashion bloggers announced their anxiety for summer, when they would be able to work trainers and tennis skirts into their #ootd. Even I snagged a pair of New Balance to prep for the season. Now, Karl has done it again. During Couture Fashion Week this past week, models for Chanel hit the runway in loose skirts, boxy crop tops and suits that look like they are just as comfy during the weekend as they are in the office–all of which were complemented with thong sandals tied at the ankle, preparing you for all the moves you need to make without the pain of sky-scraping stilettos.

Although fashion is an art form, I’m always appreciative of designers who send replicable and realistic pieces and collections down the runway. Uncle Karl beautifully balances his craft with exclusivity and tangibility. Check out my picks from Chanel’s Fall ’14 Couture collection, below.
