Love your Glove - Chanel A/W 2011 Object Fetish now online!

Karl Lagerfeld has described his approach to design as 'vampiristic' - and few designs suck quite as much as his creations for Chanel (meant in the best possible fashion, of course). For Autumn/Winter 2011, Lagerfeld glanced back to a founding principle of Mademoiselle Gabrielle's house: that of luxe pauvre. The luxurious poverty of Chanel's jersey dresses (previously a fabric only used for men's undergarment) was reflected in Lagerfeld's deluxe reinterpretations of working wear. Chantilly lace overalls, anyone? Or how about fingerless mittens adorned with Goossens bijouterie, coincidentally the latest fashion pieces to fixate on in our Object Fetish 2011 series of fashion films, created by Nick Knight and starring Raquel Zimmermann.
