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.
