Chanel 2011 Resort Collection

May 15, 2010

Once a year Karl Lagerfeld puts on an amazing show for Chanel’s resort collection. And every year, the direction this creative genius takes surprises and astonishes me. It’s like a whirlwind of emotions with this man. Maybe a bit extreme, but you get what I mean.

As usual, the setting for this lavish runway event was perfectly dreamy. The setting sun over the sea in the beautiful Saint-Tropez’s famous Sénéquier. A road-like runway in the centre with invited guests sitting in red wooden chairs all around.

A very feminine 70’s inspired collection had the crowd in awe, especially since it was quite the departure from last years oh-so dark and edgy collection. Long-tousled-tressed barefoot models in flowy florals and over-the-top accessories – what would a Chanel collection be without extreme jewelry – adorned the runway.

Lagerfeld says of the location and collection:

I spent many years of my life here…I know Saint-Tropez like I know Paris. The collection is very casual, very down-to-earth.

Besides the flowly floral maxi’s, we also saw high waisted pants, pastels and Chanel’s traditional bouclé tweeds intertwined within the pieces in classic suits and not-so classic swim wear. So many pieces to love and dream about. Sigh.
