The brilliant and totally eccentric Karl Lagerfeld has used Indian jewellery and Indian-inspired prints and cuts in his pre-fall 2012 collection for Chanel. The result is quite stunning.
The collection features typical Indian jewellery such as maangtikka, cummerbund, bangles and different types of necklaces. The clothes are fairly monochromatic apart from the occasional pop of colour. I really love the jewelled minaudiere clutches and all the jackets. It also features a lot of draped pieces, which are touted to be a huge trend next season.

I hope we see some of this collection on the red carpet! I love the whole East meets West concept!
Would you incorporate elaborate jewellery with your Western clothes?
