Chanel Fall 2013 Runway Review

Chanel is a global brand and they're darn proud of it. Outfitting its runway was an enormous glass dome of the world illuminated by CC markers corresponding to points where the brand is sold around the world. Fitting for a brand that reaches so many countries, the lineup included some 80 looks, many of which had futuristic tinges to them — think structured collars, helmet-like colorful hats and boxy shapes. Youthful appeal was added via flat boots (granted they were thigh-high and covered in chains), pleated skirts and a variety of outerwear done in a mix of fitted and slightly voluminous silhouettes.

As for the brand's signature tweeds, they made for boxy jackets with rounded shoulders and matching skirts and the most memorable dresses were black with sheer paneling. And while there may not have been any hula hoop equivalent this season, the globe-shaped minaudières are sure to be hot sellers.
