CHANEL À SAINT TROPEZ!

We all know Karl Lagerfeld likes to travel to show his resort & prefall collections for Chanel. The prefall collection was shown in Shanghai, last year's resort colection was in Venice, this year, Saint Tropez was the place to be. Models arrived via speedboat (how appropriate) & walked the runway right next to the port. The collection felt very seventies to me and I can't deny I'm a tad relieved designers are getting over the 80s trend. Enough is enough, right? But let's look at some pictures, shall we:



See how people were all seated in these fun red chairs? How perfect is that!


Look! Karl is getting all frivolous in purple! I think I prefer his usual black + white attire though, but oh well, it is St Tropez after all...


Top 3 pictures from Fashionologie.com, all other pictures via style.com

And yet again, Kaiser Karl made a short movie to set the tone for his collection, watch it if you haven't seen it already, it's quite entertaining.

That bag is off the charts amazing. So impractical, so unrealistic and so amazing! And the sweater's print looks sort of Incan-inspired. And I'm totally in love with the models that are barefoot.

I posted this collection as well, but I posted mostly the 70's safari parts. I thought it was ridiculously noncohesive but loved it, we had glitter, pinks, pastels, denim, and safari all at the same time!

Heel fijne post, echt een mooie samenvatting van Chanel in St-Tropez! Dat videootje is hilarisch he! Vooral wanneer Abbey Lee Frans praat, haha. Maar Magdalena Frackowiaks danspasjes mogen er best wezen. Ik vraag me af of ze dat daar speciaal voor de optredens heeft geleerd, of ofdat ze stiekem al jaren oefent
