Chanel's Resort Collection: A Romantic, 70's Inspired Affair

Arriving by speed boat onto Quai Jean Jaurès, the models poured out onto the famously beautiful streets of St Tropez.

 The runway, fashioned from one such street, was lined with quaint red-painted foldout chairs for the show’s attendees. Then, it was time for Lagerfeld to unveil his latest great art piece. Models flaunted down the runway, often barefooted, wearing soft, romantic floor length dresses, very bohemian and completely 70’s inspired. The floaty gowns were followed with Freja Beha Erichsen, dressed like an old school rockstar in a silk tux.

Lagerfeld injected a softness into the collection with pastel shades, such as a delicious mint-coloured sweater, as modelled by Karl’s muse, Baptiste Giabiconi.
Other pieces seen included some gingham bikinis, loose crochet dresses, and denim skirts teamed with classic Chanel style tweed jackets in a deep violet, as well as a whole host of brown flairs.

The collection was startlingly down to earth, with a large dose of romance, spirit, and nostalgia. Lagerfeld explains what inspired him for the collection:
"I spent many years of my life here, I know Saint-Tropez like I know Paris. The collection is very casual, very down-to-earth."
The collection, which was planned impeccably and implemented with perfection, was still fun, relaxing, and had a carefree sense that made the show look genuinely entertaining, refreshing, and fun.
