Under the Sea

His royal highness, Karl Lagerfeld presented the Chanel Spring Summer 2012 collection last night in Paris. The highlight for most at Paris Fashion Week, and it is no wonder why.
The spectacular runway show incorporated an underwater theme with the stage emblazoned in giant oyster shells and underwater features.

The clothes, one might say, are a dream.
Utterly classic with a modern contemporary twist makes the line very wearable yet it screams signature Chanel in a very subtle manner.
Covering a multitude of styles from sports luxe, classic tweeds, leather shorts and angelic swimwear to dreamy chiffon dresses, elfin-like materials and sumptuous colour the line really does concur with something for everyone.

I love how classic cream dresses and suits in simple cuts with signature pearl embellishment is suddenly contrasted with multi-colored soft sequined scalloped dresses, then insert flamingo skirts with soft modern-take military jackets (loving turquoise and salmon colour combination!) and nude leather shorts with oversized cardi's (a fresh, lighter take on androgyny of this season).

All I can say is WOW!
I am pretty mesmerized by this line (can't you tell??) and it's nude and pastel palette as a whole really adheres to my style ideals.
Also the line of models was genius, I'm a big fan.
Add Florence Welch singing in a giant-sized oyster shell and hey presto, magic!
Props to my man Karl!
