2009 Cruise: Chanel

There's no place like sizzling Miami, and Karl Lagerfeld thought the Raleigh Hotel would be the perfect setting for his latest Cruise collection. He was right. A lifeguard oversaw the posh audience, including Chanel muse Diane Kruger and sporty fashionista Anna Kournikova, as well as the fashion elite. And just in case there was any funny business, Chanel logo life preservers were bobbing about. For Karl, this show was “all about proportions, cuts, volumes. There is not one line that is taken all through the collection. For cruise, you don’t do that. There are many looks and an attitude.”

Oh, and the attitude; it was chipper amongst the synchronized swimmers and fierce amongst the models. The clothes were feathered, plasticized, and also synchronized. Black and white made a cameo as well as creamy neutrals and pretty pink — the pink knits were superb. The quirky accessories added humor and sporty touches added a slick element. To wit, the inspiration was Brian Jones, the troubled Rolling Stone who's dead body was found at the bottom of his pool in 1969. Fashion and irony, brilliant.

Love it! Love Karl! I loved the Cruise collection better last year. The Paris/LA collection is a lot more fiercer. 3 months ago, I bought the "LA" tote by Chanel as a homage to my city. I love it! Ha!

I commented on the photo but I have to say it again here. The strappy shoes in lavender, black and ivory were beautiful! Very Gucci with the bamboo heel, but in the black (and the heel doesn't even look too high, so you could actually wear them) they could be your go to AMAZING shoes to class up any outfit. FAB please tell me more! Can you tell I'm in drooling over here?

That should be "whose" not "who's." Just wanted to point that out.
