The Chanel Cruise 2009 Collection took place yesterday at the Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach, models rocked the runway with Brian Jones-inspired hair and “18 members of the U.S. Olympic Synchronized Swim Team closed the show” in a simple one piece C-H-A-N-E-L bathing suit – WOW! “The concept of the Cruise Collection is based on traveling, and Miami is the ideal destination: a city that moves and has energy, with its small districts and its animated streets,” comments Karl Lagerfeld. Karl Lagerfeld never fails to impress, the Cruise Collection is absolutely FABULOUS there are so many hot pieces that I want! I can’t wait to see the video!
One of the most eye catching piece is the “Miami Vice” gun shoes, Fashion Week Daily reports that it was “inspired by an image of a gun he saw somewhere, and he gave the tear to shoe designer Laurence Dacade, who employed plexi to make them functional” and they’re not just for the runway so call up Chanel and get your names on the list as they will be available in stores! Another interesting piece is the silver sequined jacket that Karl Lagerfeld wore to the Met’s Costume Institute Gala, there were three replicated looks of that jacket in the show. I also quite like the sunglasses and the heart bag with the enlarged CC plastered on it, the fab accessories as usual – drool and not to mention how hot Zoe Kravit’s sea foam Chanel bag is!!
Peep the collection after the jump…
