Chanel Resort: 2013

Resort 2013:

Held in The Palais de Versailles and inspired by the marvellous Marie Antoinette, Karl Lagerfeld (or King Karl as people seem to be calling him lately) created a collection that combined classic French aristocracy, with a modern day twist. The result? A series of looks with enough wow-factor to make any type of woman crave a piece of the collection for themselves. 

Gold embellishments and touches, ruffled white lace tiers that ran petticoat-like down the side of skirts, boucle jackets, modern swimwear, culottes, scoop neck sun dresses and gathered gowns came together to create a wardrobe for the modern day Marie. Accessories? Short, candy coloured wigs, floppy sun hats, white sole-brothel-creeper trainers and beauty spotted cheeks topped the looks off in a surprisingly chic way. According to the man himself, "Serious frivolity" was the key idea behind Karl's pencil when he created the collection.

Personally, I loved the collection - not every piece, but most - and thought Karl Lagerfeld did a brilliant job in taking an iconic woman such as Marie Antoinette and creating a look for the modern day women in her image.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous!!

I've included some pieces that (and a photo of Karl, of course) I felt were particular favourites of mine. What are your thoughts on this collection? Would you wear any of it yourself?

Wanted: Wardrobe

Edited by: Sonia of In Pursuit of Style
Something about the change in weather that makes me want bright colors, fabulous new clothes and fancy new shoes. This happens every year, as excitement builds with peep toes, sleeveless tops and flowing skirts aplenty. I’ve been feeling uninspired lately, but this week’s blogger submissions have me excited again. We have some showing us how to make old things new again, trends in different iterations and best of all, at a great price! Maybe I can go out a buy that new wardrobe after all...
