The Chanel Cruise 2013 collection channels a modern Marie Antoinette for looks befitting of a punked-out Parisian princess. Creative director Karl Lagerfeld mixes and matches these two seemingly unrelated styles for looks that are playful, whimsical and purely feminine. While he recently shot the press kit images for the line, this is a more extensive look at the latest designs.
Rife with pastel colors, ruffled skirts, fingerless gloves, wigs and tailored jackets, the Chanel Cruise 2013 collection was presented at the Château de Versailles, which provided the perfect opulent setting for a relatively light-hearted show. Featuring three fountains, sixty-six models and sixteen tents, the fashion show would do the queenly eighteenth century muse proud.
