Natalie Hockey in Chanel for Grazia Australia January 2011
Love love love the way they’ve presented Chanel here. The feel of it is completely different from the normal elegant structure of Chanel. And while Karl does an excellent job with presenting both high end fashion and a down to earth feel, the aesthetic of Chanel has never been present quite like this. It’s almost like a melding of Proenza Schouler coolness and Chanel ladylike sophistication (conveniently this is pretty much how Proenza Schouler had presented its last spring collection). Natalie channels this cool aloof character while exuding the elegance and confidence needed for Chanel. Taking it to the outback is an excellent change of pace for this type of design.
