Chanel Cruise: 2010

On May 14th, Karl Lagerfield unveiled the 2010 Chanel Cruise collection on the beach in beautiful Venice. The setting for the fashion show was rightfully chosen because Lagerfeld's inspiration for this new collection was the classic Venetian glamour of the 1930's. The show took place at the Excelsior hotel on the Lido beach. Lagerfeld was quick to explain his reasoning “Venice has a genuine dark and mysterious side to it that fascinated me. I really like the Italian spirit and the Venetian lifestyle. And let’s not forget that Coco Chanel came back to Venice for 10 years."

The collection certainly reflected this Venetian theme. Think nautical with loads of stripes, brass buttons, and wide brimmed hats. Models sported 30's bobs and walked down the boardwalk as 300 guests watched the show from wooden deck seats. Open toed wedge boots were worn with most of the looks. The lion, Venice’s emblem and also Coco Chanel’s birth sign, appeared as a print on flowy sepia-toned or black-and-white chiffon dresses.

I am coveting this Chanel headband worn to the show by actress Kasja Smutniak.


  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  3. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
