CHANEL 2011-12 Cruise Collection 5

Chanel mixes it up by accessorising the 2011-2012 Cruise Collection with very precious jewels from the house's fine jewellery collection. The look is relaxed glamour a la Cote d'Azure. Jewels on the catwalk is not new, but draping willowy models in fine jewellery for a ready to wear show is. And so Chanel added the sparkle of real diamonds to the catwalk by putting its most precious brooches, bracelets, necklaces and earrings onto the girls who told through fashion Karl Lagerfeld's latest story: "A Tale of a Fairy." The show took place al fresco at the legendary Eden-Roc Hotel in Cap d'Anitbes at the same time as, just around the bay, the Cannes Film Festival was underway. So what was the look for the Chanel 2011-12 Cruise Collection? Karl Lagerfeld explains:"A certain discipline in the clothes with a glamour inherited from the 1950s, a glamour that is more natural, more interior, miles away from the current red carpet trends."  It was an intimate show attended by HRH the Princess of Hanover, CHANEL ambasadresses Anna Mouglalis, Blake Lively and Vanessa Paradis, actresses Clémence Poésy, Marine Vacth and Rachel Bilson, as well as Laura Bailey, Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne and Caroline Sieber. Have a look at the videos below of the fashion show as well as the film directed by Karl Lagerfeld to go with the "The Tale of a Fairy" collection.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
