Chanel Resort 2013 Collection, Versailles Eye Candy

  • Pin it

Although everyone seems to be on their high couture horses for the new Chanel Cruise 2013 collection, I’m not certain whether I should cry or laugh at Karl Lagerfeld’s new fashion design deed. If they’ll do a Marie Antoinette parody, they could use some of his Cruise 2013 creations as costumes.

The Kaiser was deeply moved by France’s politics as of late (the very recent elections appointed a left president) but that didn’t stop him from delivering a candy – like collection. Harajuku meets Marie Antoinette. I’m really curious to see the stylists’ interpretations in fashion magazines. What do you think their perspective will be?

Well, that is a difficult task. Focusing strictly on the clothes and putting apart all (pseudo) philosophical and sociological aspects of a collection ,I see them as masterpieces of craftsmanship but at same time, plain ugly!
I mean, we all know about the incredible work of the “petits mains” at any atelier. But how to incorporate it into something more modern concerning sillouetes ? Seriouly, bows and frills AND ruffles AND furbelows plus heavy embroidery ?? I think it shows how detached from reality KL actually is.
Wasn´t Chanel herself totally against the old system of dressing?
Some pieces, individually, are stunning but overall this collection is beyound horrendous in my opinion.
I bet money more than one stylist will put a model wearing a wig a la Marie Antoniette for an editorial, falsely believing he is being really creative.Save my words and you will see.. Creativity is a rare commodity nowadays .
