Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 has been launched week ago and it has an unprecedented response. The collection was inspired from India, the land of colours and wonders. Karl Lagerfeld has never been to India. It's much more inspiring not to go to places than to go, he said today after a Chanel presentation that spectacularly evoked the sights, smells, and sounds.
The theme "Paris-Bombay" was a reminder that Europe's fashion industry has increasingly turned to India to produce extravagantly handwork pieces as it has become prohibitively expensive to make them at home.
