Black and White All Over

The Chanel spring 2009 ready-to-wear collection is absolutely stunning. The black and white ensembles were all so beautiful, made even more perfect with details such as bows (which I love). Black is no doubt classic on its own, but when paired with white--a fresh new look is created. There's something about the balance of these two colors that looks just right. I'm drawn by how modern the designs are in this collection. I appreciate the way Karl Lagerfield has updated the classic Chanel suit with the addition of fingerless gloves and chains. The mixing of the old with the new translates well on the runway.
