Fall-Winter 2009/10 Ready-to-Wear

For this collection, staged at the Grand Palais, Karl Lagerfeld designed a minimalist and purified décor. It was made up of a succession of eight white spaces and a contrasting black lacquered floor — a combination which could just as easily evoke a vast contemporary apartment, an art gallery or Chanel's couture salons on the rue Cambon. Door frames in the white spaces allowed for movement throughout the blocks and for the models to cross one another weaving down the runway, breaking from the traditionally linear movement of fashion shows.

Chanel "belle brummelle"

The Fall-Winter 2009/10 Ready-to-Wear collection is an homage to black, all kinds of black. Karl Lagerfeld gave this collection a working title: "The collection is called Chanel Belle Brumelle," as a reference to Beau Brumelle, "the 18th century English dandy who invented the look for men of dark clothes with the focal point on ties, scarves, collars and cuffs".

Therefore, in this collection there are ruffled collars and cuffs in white tulle, muslin and taffeta, which adorn the neck and wrists of the elegant black dresses and impeccable black suits. This unity of the blacks is punctuated by moments of pale pink and jade green, which delicately enliven the collection.

As for accessories, the jewelry is geometric, with a playful and unpretentious art deco inspiration. Also of note are the classic bags in their thermoformed packaging, with pockets for an iPod, the N°5 perfume, and sunglasses.
