You know I ended up taking more than a peek. I ended up viewing the entire collection, then printing some pics out for my inspiration board...but as I looked at garment after garment, all I could think is that it was all about the pockets.
Now what does this remind you of:

And doesn't this look like
Aren't these pants kewl with
the deep pockets on the side:
I just love what I can see of this dress:
Almost every model walked the runway with her hands in some type of pocket. But what struck me the most was the use of that invisible pocket that was featured in the Rachel Cormey skirt. I mean Karl Lagerfeld used this pocket quite a bit in some really creative ways...he added a satin band, he added a floral embellishment, a sequined embellishment, and the frayed edge of the fabric. I thought I was doing something when I used that pocket on my Rachel Dress but Lagerfeld took it to an entirely different level.
I have another Rachel Dress on my winter sewing list and after seeing the Chanel Couture Spring 2012 line, I'm moving that one up to the top of the list cause those pockets, pockets, pockets are doing a number on me!
...as always, more later!
