Chanel Couture Spring 2009

For his Spring 2009 Collection, Karl Lagerfeld is to have said that he "started with a clean sheet of paper."

Although the garments he showed were pretty much stark white (with touches of black) they were full of exquisite detail - paillettes, beads, embroidery. And although intricate, nothing seemed busy or overwrought.  Everything was clean, fresh, and very Chanel.

In case you were wondering, the lavish headdresses worn by the models are actually fantastic paper sculptures by Katsuya Kamo, a Japanese hair and makeup artist.
