RESORT IN VENICE

Yesterday Karl Lagerfeld showed the new Chanel Resort collection for 2010 in Venice, Italy. The pictures from the show made me wish I was there. A beautifully lit walk along the beach in Venice, just as the sun was setting, does it get any better than that?




Why Venice? Well, Gabrielle Chanel was born under the sign of Leo on the 19th of August in 1883. She collected models of lions for her apartment and the lion became some sort of biographical seal for her. Now you may or may not know, but the lion is also the symbol of the city of Venice, and Chanel loved it there. Seems like a nice hommage of Karl to show the collection there, no?



This was the opening of the show. The bathing suits under these cloaks look amazing... (you can see more of them on style.com)



And instead of wearing masks on sticks as is traditional in Venice, the models wore sunglasses on sticks!
The collection itself didn't really wow me, it was good but not great. My favourite look though is the middle one on the first row.

who'd have thought to have a catwalk on a sunsetting beach huh, gotta trust chanel for the grandeur! great masquerade-like hats and capes in the third photo!

SO SO SO BEAUTIFUL.

but i have to admit the hair is quite distracting.
something a bit more flow-y would of been a bit softer as the clothing and jewels are so bold and striking.

have a wonderful weekend beauty.

The sunglasses masks were so clever. I wish the rims had been blinged up in Karl's usual style, though. I love his collections, if only because they're so rich despite using color on the black and white spectrum.
