Chanel Resort 2013

The celebrated designer Karl Lagerfeld rolled out a baroque-tinged cruise collection on Monday at the seat of French opulence, Versailles Palace, with film stars and other celebrities such as actress Tilda Swinton and singer Vanessa Paradis in appearance.

"The palace is the perfect place for Chanel, you couldn't imagine anything better," said Paradis, who watched as models filed by with ruffled eighteenth century tulle sleeves.

Model of the moment Cara Delavigne opened the show in a velvety, pale blue denim dress, with a crisp A-line skirt. But the rest of show felt more like Chanel's answer to a Baroque history lesson. Beauty spots, bottom-heavy skirts, and floral chokers infused spectators with a feeling of Marie Antoinette's heyday.The rococo embellishments on many of the garments Karl Lagerfeld sent down the runway made it impossible to imagine him showing the collection anywhere else. Floral embroidery accented modernized versions of what French nobles wore to the court of Louis XVI, and many of the looks were paired with pastel-colored flatforms. Another look twinned a black, fitted sequined zipper jacket, with a raw-edged, silk bustle skirt which hung like petals in soft pastels of pale pink, blue and yellow.

"Oh no, lightness is what France is known for. I don't delve into politics here," said German-born Lagerfeld, after the show. "Besides, I can't vote."

Earlier this year, Chanel presented 'Secret Garden - Versailles'
A film by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, starring Daria Strokus, Melissa Stasiuk and Xiao Wen Ju in La Galeries Des Glaces - Château de Versailles.

U nedjelju (13 maja) modna kuća Chanel je održala modnu reviju u Parizu. Lokacija revije je dugo vremena bila skrivana, no bilo ko ko je u posljednje vrijeme pratio dešavanja u ovoj modnoj kući, zasigurno je upoznat i sa novim Chanelovim editorijalom koji je snimljen upravo u vrtovima Versaillesa. Karl Lagerfeld je i ovaj put izabrao Versailles za prikazivanje revije kolekcije Cruise. Vrtovi Versaillesa bili su prirodna kulisa za raskoš Chanelovih kreacija, a tema ovogodišnje pariške revije bila je Marie Antoinette -supruga kralja Luja XVI. Ovo nije prvi put da modne kuće koriste Versailles za prikazivanje revija. To je, prije Chanela, 2007. godine u povodu 60. obljetnice napravila i modna kuća Christin Dior za kolekciju koju je tada kreirao sad već bivši kreator John Galliano.
