You saw the Remember Now Chanel Cruise 2011 video now see the video of the Cruise fashion show. What a spectacle it is. Perfect setting for a cruise collection fashion show. I also enjoyed this short film focusing on the accessories and details of the collection.
Some of the Balenciaga Resort 2011 collection looked very 70s airline uniform. I wasn’t a big fan of that.Â Of the pieces that didn’t look like that, I loved the prints and vibrant colours.Â I drink the Balenciaga koolaid with no regrets. The repeating pattern prints reminds me of childhood blankets and clothing.Â The collection still has that sporty Balenciaga feel. WWD.com had some close up images of the accessories.Â They didn’t have any photo of the slouchy print boot.Â I love the industrial looking jewellery. images: Style.com and wwd.com
Remember Now, the short film by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Cruise 2011 collection looked slick and the clothes were oh so pretty but it was empty. It was a 16 minute short film that didn’t evoke an emotional reaction from me that wasn’t related to clothing. That’s too bad. The film nerd in me can’t deal with the stupid continuity issues either. I liked having all this media to consume from Chanel about the cruise 2011 collection. It’s always some grand spectacle to take a gawk at. The collection photos are up already and I’m loving about a quarter of the collection and going WTF for a quarter of it. The rest is meh. There are 80+ LOOKS!!! The first 8 looks put me in a good mood and then it when up and down. Some of the white and black stuff I liked and most of the 70s stuff I wasn’t a fan of. WWD has the full collection posted and you can see it on The Fashion Spot. I can’t wait for …
I’ve totally bought into Remember Now, the short film by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Cruise 2011 collection. The video does look pretty slick and inviting. I can’t wait to see the whole film. EDIT: the preview video was taken down but see this post for the full video.
