Following last years Mumbai series - which saw distinctive references to Indian and Middle Eastern headdress, jewelry and Thawb garments - Chanel presents its 2013 pre-fall collection with another cultural theme, this time gesturing towards Scottish heritage. Titled “Paris-Edinburgh,” Karl Lagerfeld draws on influences from the 14th century Anglo-Saxon era. The men’s collection sees a more contemporary take on Scottish fashion – think thick woven outerwear and Scottish barrie-square pants. In all, Chanel has displayed a romantic juxtaposition in this collection, continuing to show Lagerfield’s baroque take in the ever-changing world of fashion. With more attention shown towards designs for men, it’ll be interesting to see what the French fashion house delivers next.
