CHANEL CRUISE 2012/2013

The maestro, czar and chief of all that is fashion forward - Karl Lagerfeld - has outdone himself yet again. With the launch of Chanel's Cruise 2012/2013 collection, fasione-istas are sure to have something to look forward from the poignant and strikingly elegant haute couture brand. 

The collection showcased a vivacious melange of couture, accessories and footwear that seems to be literally have been taken from the past and pushed forward into the present with a futuristic twist. I see a lot of inspiration from petticoats and age-old British fashion served in a modern shell and mix of color, fabrics and overdone [yet oh so right] accessorizing and styling. I just love how Maestro Karl mixed old world clothing with high platform shiny sneakers, as well as the play of floppy sun hats. Just gorgeous! Oh! Lest we forget the showing of men's fashion? Jadore!!

Check out some of my fave looks from the series:
