they hatin’ on Karl, yo! Or why Chanel’s pre-fall collection is brills x10

For some strange reason, maybe because there are so many uninformed people in fashion right now, there are constant screams of racism where none exists. Karl Lagerfeld is in the hot seat right now, excoriated for his western themed pre-fall 2014 collection, and there’s no reason for it. Except maybe the jealousy felt by non-creative people when faced with brilliance?

This collection is EVERYTHING. The clothes are absolutely beautiful and update the beautiful ideas of this timeless and exciting country. The American West was all petticoats, and fringe, bonnets and cowboy boots. There were cowboys and Indians. There were prairies (still are) and mountain ranges (we still have those, too).

Having traveled into the Western states and been lucky enough to wander through some thrift/vintage stores out there- these clothes are a richer, luxer way of expressing the boldness and freedom of true pioneer style.I mean- did no one see True Grit?  It’s Texas plus Paris, Montana plus Montmartre. I die a thousand deaths just looking at the photos…

All those boring little people shopping at Forever 21 for knockoffs can bite it. Chanel’s pre-fall collection is a triumph. You just mad cuz you can’t have it.
