Chanel Resort 2012

Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his resort collection for Chanel yesterday in the Cap d'Antibes.
Just in time for the Cannes Film Festival, the collection embodied the nonchalant chic so representative of summers on the Cote d'Azur.
Guests sipped champagne at parasoled tables while the models strolled along the runway in floaty frocks and slender suits.
Here are some of my favourites

Natasha Poly strutted down the runway in a one piece black bathing suit and short white ornate jacket, complemented by vintage inspired sunglasses and an adorable silver boater hat.
This is a look I will definitely be adopting on the beach this summer
I really loved how Karl re-imagined the boater hat for this collection.

I was taken aback yet very much enamoured with this jewelled turban on Baptiste.

This piece, I loved for its lightness and simplicity. The bead work is exquisite. Bianca Balti looked like a fairy.
And speaking of fairies, the presentation was succeeded with the premiere of Lagerfeld's new film "The Tale of a Fairy" featuring Freja Beha.
I am DYING to see the thirty minute flick, unfortunately I have not yet found it:(
