Chanel Couture Spring 2013.

I've not been saying a lot of nice things about Uncle Karl lately.  I've been underwhelmed by his recent collections and we all just have to deal with that.  I'd never say it to his face.  To be fair, I'm not sure if I could say anything to his face...I mean, in my world, he is more of a god than a mere mortal.  Sigh...

This couture collection is not one of my soul-shaking fashion moments.  But this was some kind of brilliant 'Alice went to Wonderland and hooked up with the Mad Hatter' vibe.  And I dig that.  Seriously dig that.  Part of it may be the brilliant beauty that Karl always seems to deliver.  (No matter how wishy washy I may be about some of the Chanel collections, I always adore the beauty.)  See the entire collection here.
