Show report: Chanel autumn/winter 2012

Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel turned to nature for inspiration this season – not to predictable leafy forests, but to cold, sharp crystals created over millions of years in underground caves. The spiky nature of his inspiration led to a focused and precise collection of layered three-quarter-length coats, dresses and skirts which swung around the knee and ankle-skimming tailored trousers. This strong, futuristic cave woman was adorned with ruched metallic fabrics worn over silver Lurex-shot tweeds in green, black and this season’s violet.
