Big fans of Chanel, im sure

Dolores Umbridge (Harry Potter, 'Minister of Magic')

Theresa May, Home Secretary

I have always been interested in the concept of binaries and see something slightly dark in the underside of Chanel's pearly pinks and woollen twinsets. Lagerfeld's Chanel shows are always so aesthetically satisfying because they are so controlled, governed and regimented down to the very last tuck, pleat or bow. At the same time, I cant help but see a bit of the Dolores Umbridge/Theresa May in there- a sickly sweet image with a sinister glint in the eye.
