Chanel in Dallas

It is safe to say that Karl Lagerfeld has done it again. Show stopping tweed and over-tassled cardigans that Marant would be jealous of, the Chanel Ready-To-Wear Pre Show has landed. And there is no question as to why the collection was presented in Dallas.

An overtly Western feel has evidently infiltrated Chanel HQ, and we sure should be glad of it. The M├ętiers d'Art show presents an evolution from this year's revival of the skirt; this time coming in all shapes, but one definitive length. Say goodbye to your legs next autumn, because anything above calf-length has become a sartorial sin.

Lagerfeld has inserted accessories and embellishment wherever possible, with a particular interest in the neck; across the collection there are more looks with a neck bow or brooch than without. The collar trend also lives on, and a sigh of relief from Brits everywhere sees layering as officially on-trend. The show also sees a resurgence in all-black, denim, and in keeping with the theme, white dresses; think Little House on the Prairie chic.

Temptation to include every look from the show has been resisted, so here are a select few of my favourite looks.

It is also plain to see how Chanel's Ready-To-Wear collection will translate to the high street. There are such a myriad of accessories to be imitated and a direct focus on certain fabrics and colours in this collection that it won't be hard for those with a far lower budget to inhabit the Wild West next year. Karl, we thank you.

Update 12/12/13: Chanel have since posted the full show on their YouTube channel, enjoy the collection in all of its glory here!
