Elena is showing off her Chanel couture story photo’s from Russia’s InStyle Magazine! The Czarina is wearing Chanel (of course!)- but the hat looks like it’s from Chanel’s fall 2013 collection- the very collection that was showcased on a runway described as being old world meets new-
“The decor for Chanel earlier was faded old world meets city of the future,”. –Vogue, Paris
I guess that explains the story behind the funny hat (touches of something old and futuristic). & No it’s not a kokoshnik.
