PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld is nothing if not protean, and he illustrated that fact again with the beautiful, stellar fall couture collection he showed for Chanel on Tuesday. But while, last season, he went for lightness and gentility, this time the mood shifted dramatically into the extravagant and lush. There were terrific new jackets with ultra-long cuffs; stunning, freshly proportioned suits, and many looks with elongated waists, often marked by wide jeweled belts. Here, his long, bow-trimmed jacket, worn with a sheer point d’esprit skirt. For more on the season, see pages photospread Dream Team.
