Biker Chic: 1990s Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel

One of my favorite new finds for RARE vintage: 1990s Chanel and lots of it!  (Scroll down to see what is now available at RARE vintage)

Karl Lagerfeld is the Couture Master of `the DJ Remix.  He references the iconography of the House of Chanel: the quilted bag, the gilt and leather chain strap, the CC logo but mixes it with a dash of hip hop,  a little punk, a bit of biker chic, the eighteenth century, the last days of the Raj and the French Riviera.  

In the early 1990s Lagerfeld mixed a heavy street look into Chanel's hallowed Maison de Couture.

and, of course, Peter Lindbergh's famous photo of the Chanel Supermodel Gang:

I am very excited about a group of early 1990s Chanel that has just arrived at RARE vintage.  I thought I would start with these gilt and leather chain earrings with a huge drop pearl in the center.
