"The fall 2011 couture shows have just wrapped in Paris, marking the end of a stunning week in fashion: from the fairy-tale looks put forth by Valentino and Givenchy, to Chanel’s incredible installation and presentation at the Grand Palais."

And I am completely thrilled by the sheer volume of modest designs created by many of these famous designers. I am especially enamored by Chanel this season...each piece is a divine fashion confection...many of them knee length, high necked and fully sleeved. Lucky for us, modesty in fashion is finally seeing its heyday and it's about time! Here are some of my favorite picks, some a bit more avant garde than others, but all visually appealing and creative delights. Now if we could only afford just one. But have no fear; I predict this will be one of the most copied collections of the season. 

This fabulous Chanel Couture lineup at the Grand Palais in Paris is reminiscent of an early century, art deco scene featuring ladies at their finest.


1. Peplums
2. Feathers 
3. Hot pink as an accompanying color to black and grey
4. Knee length skirts
5. High necklines
6. Sheer sleeves under jackets

What do you think? Love it or hate it? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Have a fabulous Monday!

  6. LOVE IT ALL! Chanel is my favorite every year but this season is especially stunning and can be layered very stylishly (with that fun Chanel edge AND modesty at the same time)! Love all the rich colors and fabrics. Your prediction will be right, I'm sure. Also, there are many (more affordable versions of these) suits of this style already on eBay and online - tweed, peplum, feathers.

  7. Absolutely STUNNING collection! So elegant, charming and the combination of colors are amazing.

    Great post and blog, keep up the positive vibes. ^__^
