Chanel show is the first in a series of other Resort 2011 shows we can expect this summer. And probably it is one of the most grandiose ones.
Held in Saint Tropez town Chanel show was groundbreaking. First, because it included over 80 looks both male and female. And second, because it featured plus-size model Crystal Renn that was a precedent fashion house never even admitted to happen.
Modeling expert and ANTM judge André Leon Talley on Chanel’s resort show said:
[Karl] Lagerfeld had cast the show with a slightly more curvaceous model named Crystal Renn, not seen on any Chanel catwalk before. This in itself was groundbreaking for the house, but there was also the return of personality models encouraged to be themselves instead of robotic look-alikes.”
What caused all these new things we don’t know, but the show was fantastic. Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik, Karolina Kurkova, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Freja Beha Erichsen, Georgia May Jagger and other world-famous beauties strutted down the runway barefooted and wearing really chic seventies-inspired diaphanous caftans, long crocheted dresses, ruffle-lapelled silk jersey trouser suits, and patchwork denim skirts. Many of the outfits left girls’ midriffs exposed while some were almost tarsparent and swimwear beneath looked very sexy.
The place for the show was chosen by Karl Lagerfeld.
I spent many years of my life here. I know Saint-Tropez like I know Paris. The collection is very casual, very down-to-earth.”
