Karl Lagerfeld, designer
for the House of
Chanel, is the master of
taking an idea and
making it his own. One
such idea is leggings or,
for his clients, the look
of leggings. Lagerfeld
teams the trademark
Chanel suit jacket —
with piping and gold
buttons — with a mid-
thigh skirt and opaque
matching tights. Red is
a favorite color, both the
raspberry red tones and
the orange-red shades.
Lagerfeld, who showed
several long styles last
fall, features them again.
The long skirts are done
in airy fabrics like
chiffon, or are buttoned
on one side. But the
short styles look fresher,
including evening outfits
that consist of velvet
jackets with gold
appliques that are worn
with matching tights.

Chanel goes ethnic,
in a folkloric
patterned knit tunic,
skirt and cape.
Aztec-look gold
jewelry brights the
shades of gray.
