Chanel Goes To The Beach

He’s BBBBBBAAAAACCCCCCCKKKKKKK!  I love me some Karl Lagerfeld.  And can you blame me?  He is a complete character and also a genius at what he does.  What more could you possibly want?

Anyways, this year Herr Lagerfeld took the Chanel Resort Collection to Antibes on the French Riveria.  And the setting was perfect: luxury and decadence were the name of the game at this larger than life show.  There was everything from beachwear, to classic Chanel sutiting, as well as eveningwear and fantastic day looks.  Yep, it was a BIG show, making it difficult to narrow down my favorite looks.  But, for you lovely readers- I did!

So here they are…

The color of this suit is so vibrant- like a punch of happiness.  Plus the cape like detail of the sleeves is very interesting.

This look is delicate and feminine.  I love how light, but also luxurious it feels.

There is something powerful about this suit and robe.  The mirrored panels are also very interesting.

This dress has suit like elements but has a casual ease about it.  Such a perfect juxtaposition!

Sigh.  This dress is sooooo wonderful!  I want to wear it every day and every night.  That’s all.

  1. Are these beach outfits???!! Don’t really look like it, apart from the black/white thing. I like the yellow jacket, though.

    • Susi— Resort doesn’t actually mean it is all beach wear! :) It is really a reference to sunny vacation clothing, but it can be worn anytime anywhere….. each of these looks would be appropriate for a different occasion!

  2. I like how Karl always makes clothes that are true to classic Chanel (use a lot of the same shapes, materials, etc) but still have a new, fresh and trendy twist. I LOVE that lemon yellow outfit at the top – my fav colour!

  3. I love Karl too! Those Vionette sleeves are beautiful the way he’s using them, especially that cream short set and I LOVE his black/cream color blocked cape–so chic!

    Have a great weekend!

  6. The sleeves on that yellow suit are fabulous!

  7. Adore this collection. When do you think Chanel will partner with Target so I can afford it all? Ha! This was my contribution to the Fashion Linky:
