The most exciting time of the fashion calendar is here. Voila! Resort season 2018, welcome! Hardly could anyone have given a better start to it than the mastermind behind Chanel – Karl Lagerfeld! After his latest trip to space, this time the Lord of Fashion is taking us back in time to Ancient Greece.
Clean silhouettes with flowing details and goddess-like embellishments adorn the runway which resambles an agora* in an ancient Greek polis*. Along with the remark to the best, Lagerfeld has skiwfully interwoven the Chanel signature in each and every look – be it in the recognisable CC logo, the tweed material or state-of-the-art handbags.
The main colors, typically for Ancient Elada, are predominatly light and bright – pure white, beige, gold, bronze. Gladiator leather sandals, metal laurel leaf headpieces, jeweled golden armbands and lavish necklaces complemented the overall alure of the collection.
Antique in its inspirations and true to the house in its articulation, this Chanel Resort collection is old-fashioned—no, ancient-fashioned—yes, in the best possible sense.
