Cruise to Paradise

Style and fashion icon Chanel seems to turn out endless seasons full of glamorous clothes dripping with the pinnacle of luxe. This Resort Season is no exception as designer Karl Lagerfeld spun together not only a mammoth 75 piece collection but a movie to go with it. Businessman that he is, it is not surprising that the Antibes Runway Show (held at the jaw dropping Hotel du Cap) was offered the day before the iconic Cannes Film Festival only just a few towns away on the French Riviera. Recalling Hemingway era excess paired with soft blush tones and diamonds has made this one of the most over-the-top Resort Shows in years. Many of the Hollywood and New York Fashion Jet Set were gathered to add extra layers of sheer perfection to one of the fashion houses most lucrative seasons. Everything from swim suits to black tie event gowns was included in the showing. Top models along with pounding Prince music and plenty of lovely bubbly champagne made this The Show to see and be seen. Well, the French Riviera is made for this, even if it is beyond the reach and aspiration of most. It gives us stuff to dream about and Karl a canvas to create for. Please enjoy a selection from the show. Runway photos courtesy of
