Chanel Cruise 2010

May 15, 2009

Alright I have mentioned it before but I got to say it again, the Kaiser really knows how to pick location. The show happened at this long stretch of sand outside Hotel Excelsior on the Lido:




What a beautiful setting. Supposedly the venue “conjures images of Luchino Visconti’s “Death in Venice” and early-1900s European nobility idly basking in the sun”. 

You can check out the full collection at WWD. I much prefer this collection to the previous one held at Miami, it is much more romantic, and it sticks to the theme well. The wigs and the makeup also add on to the Venetian, old European vibe. For the references: if you look closely at the printed chiffon dresses, you can spot Coco Chanel’s birth sign and Venice’s emblem, the Lion. The printed pieces are the real standouts, and something that make this collection special, would love to see more of them instead of suits and more suits again. The sunglasses used through out the show also remind me of the masquerade Venetian eye masks, sans sequins and feathers, just normal glasses held on to the face. 

The show opened with a parade of models (led by Tanya) walking down the ‘boardway’ barefooted, with pirate-like hats and cape, followed by Tatjana Patitz opening the show with Karl’s current favourite male model. Newcomer Madisyn Ritland closed the show.
