A Riviera Dream by CHANEL Cruise 2012

Château Versailles - CHANEL Cruise Show which will held on Monday, May 14th 2012.

Invitation of CHANEL Cruise Show 2012/13
May 14th 2012

A little review of last year's Cruise 2012 show by CHANEL at Cap d'Antibes ... "Early evening at the Hôtel du Cap Eden-Roc: the sun shimmers on the waves below; the models tread the long, tree-lined path leading to the "Château". Their silhouettes are simple, their diamonds sparkle with the last rays of the sun, the luster of their pearls glows against their garments. An ethereal dream of an ultra Cruise show, where mischievous tomboys meet femmes fatales holding sway over submissive Gatsbys. Karl Lagerfeld transports us to the legendary era of the Riviera, an era of rivers of diamonds, of Russian princes, of stylish aristocrats who came to simple the delights of the seaside in magnificent beachfront villas."

Enjoy some inspirations of what you'll expected on Monday, I'd like to present you a little review of  Chanel's Cruise Show 2012 with and the fabulous mediterranean atmosphere from Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc, Cap d'Antibes and the CHANEL Cruise 2012 runway video at the end of this post! LoL, Andrea

A Riviera Dream by CHANEL Cruise 2012

Once in a while, out of the regular ready-to-wear cycle, Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel lead the fashion pack to a place of fantasia, a total-immersion experience where the meaning of "croisière'" is at its most glamorous. "This is one of the most beautiful places in the world, no?" Lagerfeld said, sitting on a deck overlooking the Mediterranean Sea at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in Antibes, the playground of the rich since the 1920s, and the setting he chose to place "resort" back in one of its original settings on the French Riviera. "This hotel is flawlessly kept, and there is a different dress code here. One has to dress to match the yachts. It cannot be sloppy," he remarked. "But I didn't want to do anything retro. People have never had as much money here as they do at the moment, and this is about how to spend your money but spend it in style."

As he spoke, the sun was setting, shedding a pink light over a pale-blue sea. "This is the time of day when you can tell real diamonds from fake," Lagerfeld observed. "And here, they are real."

The Chanel diamonds to which he was referring - shooting stars, feathers, and pins from the fine jewelry collection were pinned liberally to the shoulders and necklines of narrow mimosa-yellow and lavender tweed suits, the vivid colors reminiscent of the early-blooming flowers to be seen in the South of France. That was just for starters, though, for as the show progressed, it became one of Lagerfeld's narratives, with girls seeming to be making their way up from the beach in swimsuits, covered up with Chanel jackets or black and white cashmere wraps, and moving along a garden runway. Kristen McMenamy was among the models storming along and surrounded by men in a kind of live trailer for the movie Lagerfeld was about to screen for more 300 guests at a party come nightfall.

And that's where the serious reveling began. The film (starring McMenamy, Amanda Harlech, Anna Mouglalis, and a cast of Chanel friends) was a drama about inheritances, sparring ex-wives, house parties, casinos, and a soupçon of lesbianism. After that, the party continued with a set from Bryan Ferry, followed by dancing until sunrise among a crowd highly reluctant to wend its way back to reality.
