Karl Lagerfeld's 2009 Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld 2009 Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week. The general theme behind this year's Karl Lagerfeld Fall/Winter collection was helmets or more specifically, how to stay chic and stylish while riding a motorcycle.

Karl Lagerfeld got tied up with Ruby, the French manufacturer of scooter or motorbike helmets for his fall/winter 2009 runway show. "But these were no ordinary 'skid-lids'", notes the Telegraph. "Lagerfeld had covered the helmets with mink and chinchilla, and ensured there was space for a little iPod pocket inside. C'est chic, le Bike!" Not only are the helmets fashionable, but they're road-worthy as well.

Lagerfeld presented outerwear jackets and coats which match the chic and stylish designer biker helmets. Furthermore, one sparkly and jeweled helmet was simply paired with a dress adorned with the same jeweled detailing on the shoulders, just above the hemline, and around the waist. The lack of jackets made the helmet in this ensemble more a fashion styled accessory to complement the dress or it could be said that it showed Karl Lagerfeld's awareness that some of his fall/winter fashion designs could also be worn during warmer months.

Karl Lagerfeld Fall/Winter 2009 Ready to Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week also heavy in presence in the Karl Lagerfeld collection this year is the natural fur. Lagerfeld has come under criticism in the past for his defense of the use of fur in the fashion industry.

Another recent trend that is noticeable is the emphasis on shoulders. Lagerfeld this time around revealed an updated version of the classic elegant shoulder pad. "Unlike the shoulder pads of the 1980s, these shoulders don't jet out horizontally, but rather wrap around the shoulder like a bridge," Karl Lagerfeld told reporters. "It gives the attitude for the whole look without looking like an old truck driver from the 1980s."

Karl Lagerfeld Fall/Winter 2009 Ready-to-Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week -The fashion collection was mostly darker and black colors. Some outfits had a definite medieval feel to them, with velvety and fur-lined shoulders or rope-like trim. A few models the aura of being beautiful creatures from another world or stylish elves straight out of The Lord of the Rings, especially given the intricate earrings/ear jewelry seen on the runway.
