Back in time with Scottish grace

Paris-Edinburgh's embellished wearable artwork

I love that clutch! Probably wont see it in
Canadian stores until late next year.
Scottish bag pipes and plaid gets a Chanel tweed pixie dusting in last month's Chanel M├ętiers d'Arts Paris-Edinburgh show. In past years, Mr Lagerfeld has touched down in London, Moscow, Shanghai, and Bombay for his transcontinental interpretations of the host city's fashion and cultural backbone. I have tried on pieces from the Paris-Moscow and Paris-Bombay collections, but it would only be a dream to have these special jackets and dresses come home with me.

Held at Linlithgow Palace near Edinburgh, this year's presentation showed creations reminiscent of Mary Queen of Scot's - very regal,  Shakespearean, and still very Chanel. Here are some of my favorite looks.

 With this ensemble, anyone can pull off that collar.
