It doesn’t come as a surprise that the Fall 2009 collection for the French fashion house Chanel is largely inspired by Russia. There was so much French influence in Russia from the 1600s on, it’s about time the French were inspired by the Russians!
Adore the Matreshka Doll Bag! It’s certainly kitschy, but somehow it just works! But seeing how most accessories from the collection are custom order only, the prices are bound to be way out of most mortals’ reach. I don’t know anyone who would pay $1300.00 USD for a bangle…no matter how unique! So with that, the Chanel Paris-Moscow collection will just be something inspiring for me to look at…and covet.
