Paris Fashion Week S/2012: Chanel and Giambattista Valli

As for Paris Fashion Week?.....Collections and shows were just exquisite!  Designers embraced the magical and mystical worlds.  Mr Lagerfeld created an under the sea fantasy world..seahorses, fish, shells, pearls, coral and even a harp!  Models walked the runway like creatures of the sea, draped in pearls, pretty ruffles, bubble textures and ribbons flowing like seaweed.  However, my personal favourite were the shell clutches!  This is definitely one of my favourite Chanel collections.  Meanwhile at Giambattista Valli, audiences were treated to an adventure around the world.  From python shoes, to fur vests, floral cut outs, metallic tapestry shift dresses, skirts and jackets, animal prints and snake 'arm parties'!  A feminine and pretty collection, mixed with pastels and metallics.  Both the Chanel and Giambattista Valli collections left me speechless!
