Cruising Chanel

With the Chanel Resort 2013 collection Karl Lagerfeld proves he is still the emperor of the fashion world. Another season, another beautiful Chanel show. Held around three of the furiously spouting fountains for which les jardins de Versailles are famous for, Kaiser Karl couldn’t make a bigger statement. Hip Hop meets Marie Antoinette. Lagerfeld recreated formal 18th Century details, like panniers and fichus, in casual 21st Century fabrics – chambray, denim, even plastic – dressed up with lace ruffles, dressed down with platform trainers and short shorts. Karl wanted something floating and frivolous. ‘Frivolity is a healthy attitude.’ he said after the show. ‘I know people who were saved by frivolity.’ Light and girly, with an edgy touch… all good girls go bad these days. Hands down, Karl! Guess who’s the Sun King now?
