Chanel is the fashion house that needs no introduction as it remains at the forefront of high end fashion as delivered by the vision of Karl Lagerfeld. The front row was filled with big fashion hitters and Hollywood stars as Paris waited for the iconic brand to present their collection. Lagerfeld’s vision was that of the future for his presentation for Autumn/Winter Haute Couture Collection 2013.

The collection played on proportions and layering, with short skirts and low slung belts: Columned dressed flocked down the runway in a palate of silver, greys, black and blue. Bold shoulders, cropped jackets, tight sleeves and standing collars gave a strong, futuristic feel to the collection that was modern and sleek.

Lagerfeld said he wanted to present a collection that morphed both the past and present in this collection:

"It's between yesterday and today or tomorrow. Yesterday and tomorrow. We are in between. And the good thing is that fashion has the big opportunity that it can go from the old world to the new world which is not the case for a lot of other things."
