Runway: Chanel Resort 2011

fashion // May 15, 2010

On Tuesday, Karl Lagerfeld presented the Chanel Resort 2011 collection in the gorgeous Saint-Tropez where the models disembarked from a boat and took the runway. (By the way, the list of models in this show is just as outstanding as the collection itself. Natasha Poly opened and Georgia May closed. Need I say more?) The colorful and bohemian collection featured chiffon caftans, cropped bouclé tweed jackets, gingham blouses, and metallic shorts. Reflective of its setting, the collection was easy and carefree. In a word? Beachy. But chic. The 1970s infused this warm-weather collection (think suede bell bottoms, psychadelic-print jumpsuits and crochet dresses) and created modern Brigitte Bardot-at-the-beach looks. Saint-Tropez, here we come.
