Will Karl Lagerfeld ever stop? The cruise collections are proving to be the most decadent, visually pleasing shows in the Chanel calendar with the most recent showcasing one of the my favourite from the past few years!! Gone are the moody, boyish trouser suits of A/W11 , the young, rocking attitude that came with S/S12 Couture; instead the collection fitted itself perfectly with the regal 18th Century surroundings within the gardens of the Palace of Versailles.
The collection was a fun, fabulous melting pot of ideas from the structured dresses to the long, starched skirts, creeper metallic pumps embroidered pantaloons and pink wigs! This mixture of 18th/19th century historical reference alongside 21st century playfulness is what makes Chanel so desirable! The clothes have lived up to the hype yet again, will Karl Lagerfeld ever stop? I seriously hope not….!
