There was talk of the Chanel runway being comprised of a set of trap doors, making for a slightly awkward runway show--and our video lays its all out there for you. Staging quandaries aside, Karl Lagerfeld's collection for Chanel this season called up a series of ruffled collars and cuffs which, as the designer explained, can be removed--"at noon they're already dirty"--in order to avoid taking your dress to the dry cleaner after just two wears. Looks like Lagerfeld is more recession minded than we thought. Check out our video below, and a photo gallery of the individual looks right here.
The Fall 2009 Ralph Lauren collection was all about mixing casual, accessible pieces with super luxe, formal ones. The color palette was pale, and predominately earthy, save for the occasional flashes of black or plum. Although Lauren has agreed not to use fur in his collections his shearling and feather pieces compensated in the texture department. Check out our video of the runway show, courtesy of Vidicom, and after, don't miss our runway gallery of each individual look.
Michael Kors presented a sleek Fall 2009 collection yesterday that was just the right balance of sensibility and fun. In our video, courtesy of Vidicom, Kors talks about why women won't stop shopping during times of economic uncertainty and why just the right amount of luxury--an acid green fox fur jacket perhaps?--is not only appropriate, but justified. After the video, check out our runway gallery from the show.

Between Marc Jacobs' namesake labels and his collections for Louis Vuitton there are too many accessories to count.

From those quilted perfectly-sized bags to the extra-large shades we're sure, if not the clothing, these pieces will be out the door in no time.
