It's back to the country for Chanel in spring 2010

Emphasizing a "natural and honest chic" fit for tough economic times, the Spring 2010 Karl Lagerfield Chanel show took place in a barn, amid bales of hay and piles of dirt.



There is something undeniably strange in seeing the famous Coco Chanel emblem planted over barn rafters.  But it's provoking.  I can't pretend to know enough about fashion to comment on the clothes themselves, but the unique stage (in the article below, the Times fashion reporter expresses her incredulity over the presentation)  definitely speaks to a yearning for stability, a time when things made sense and people felt useful and authentic.  Who says that can't include feeling pretty at the same time?
