Shanghai provided the backdrop for Lagerfeld’s Chanel Pre Fall 2010 collection.

Shown on a docked pontoon on the Huangpu River you can see how the pieces echo Shanghai’s rich history.

I love the Oriental prints and Lagerfeld’s take on the traditional Qipao dress.

My favourite piece though is the shaggy fur coat with the red embellished collar. I just love the contrast of these two textures.

Quilting was another theme seen here and the black quilted trench coat is such a strong piece.

I’ve been practically drooling over the Camellias embroidered leggings.

There was also a strong nod to the military theme with quilted vests, a twist on the comrade cap and khaki green.

This collection is deliciously extragvagant and is everything we expect from Chanel and then some!
