ok, i don't really know what to think about this.
chanel put up their fall couture show in paris a couple of days ago. i wasn't super-in-love with it, but when i looked at the full collection, the color palate brought me directly back to a collection that i worked on with catherine malandrino, for fall 2007.
see for yourself....
chanel fall 2011:
malandrino fall 2007:
just looking at this comparison you can see that there's, well, no comparison in terms of who is a better designer.... (although i was not particularly impressed by chanel, unfortunately.)
but it's pretty crazy to me how similar the colors are.
anyone want to take a guess as to why?
