Chanel Cruise Collection 2010

Karl Lagerfeld launched his Chanel Cruise collection for 2010 at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Lido Resort in Venice in mid May. The models walk the catwalk, that is made to look like a boardwalk, complete with canvas beach chairs in the front row. The event took place at sunset. I am particularly enamoured with the swimsuits and beach style jumpsuits and coverups.

Lagerfeld hinted that the clothes would be reminiscent of Peggy Guggenheim, the patron whose palazzo now houses Italy’s most important collection of twentieth-century art, and inspired by Venetian high-society of the '30s, with fabrics sourced from "the rich reds of the Renaissance, Fortuny's prints, and the chiaroscuro technique of the great Italian masters."
