Chanel showed a pre-fall collection with a Paris-Byzance theme. As Lagerfeld explained, the collection was inspired by the Empress Theodora and the lost culture of Byzantium. "Theodora was a circus artist who became empress, like Chanel, who was a little singer and became a fashion empress."

I love the rich, deep colors embellished with bits of gold and lavish embroidery.

The simplicity of both of these looks is beautiful. I love the off center brooch and draping of these two outfits.

 The multicolored embroidery coordinates beautifully with the deep teal of these two dresses. I also like the longer hemline.

 This brown striped dress looks incredibly cozy and chic. The long gold gloves make it extra elegant. The green coat is equally stylish. I especially like the length of the cuff/arm detail.

What a stunning dress. I love the styling with sandals, but it would look gorgeous with gold strappy heels as well.
