When Lobster Meets Chanel

I can't recall at what point I began obsessing over seafood, shellfish in particular, but seeing as a particular butter-complimented crustacean motif has infiltrate my wardrobe not only as lobster-printed novelty bibs which are still acceptable, but also in the form of pair of slouchy jacquard fly-fold trousers. I'm not entirely proud of this, but you know you're seafood-obsessed when the very fabric that cradles your ass got giant textured shellfish plastered all over them (if I were to fart butter fumes, perhaps the combo would smell... desirable?). Still, thanks to Tsumori Chisato's clever design and placements of the print, it's not instantly recognizable as lobsters with bows, but a closer audience would be tempted to ask me for the market price - referencing the lobster, not the trousers. Moving on from crustacean appetizers, let's bring on the ensemble entrée, which today's special is a tweed woven fringe jacket by Chanel (all hail the camellia flower). This is the type of clothing that would evidently stay within the Moy family for generations, and my grandchildren would speak of their crazy great grandfather who was wore this and considered himself Lady Chanel, #BigTwist. I see you're just about done devouring the main course, though I hope you saved room for dessert, here are the dolce options: spoil your taste-buds with either some embossed pebbled pointy MJ loafers, or a croc-agate pochette. Beware, the latter may contain nuts.
