Totally wish LA and I could have been in France for "American Girls in" Versailles, because boy did Karl put on a show today. A golden collection carried by pastel mained dolls on flat-forms stormed The Palace of Versailles on Monday, debuting Chanel Cruise 2013. The collection describes a perfect blend of a modern Marie Antoinette that jams to rock n roll. Among the gold encrusted collection, my favorite pieces were the reinvented Boy bags, voluminous shorts, and flower adorned LWD's (little white dresses) in a breath taking fountain sprinkling backdrop. Take a tease of the cinched waist's among Karl's rock n roll'ed resort collection...
"It’s Coco rock, not rococo,” Lagerfeld declared during a preview at Chanel’s Rue Cambon studios on Sunday, WWD.
Their clothes winked to the days of Marie Antoinette — skirts jutting out at the sides as if there were panniers underneath, sleeves flaring at the shoulder or wrist, but were often rendered in crisp and light fabrics, including lots of denim. “It’s serious revolt,” he teased. “It’s not at all 18th century. It’s very rock. You can hardly recognize the girls” (WWD).
