Fashion: Chanel Resort 12

There's not much to say negatively about the resort collection for Chanel; it's classy, simple, and hits the right notes trend-wise. There weren't very many risks taken, everything seems pretty straight-forward — clothing that will sell, separates that can be mixed and matched, silhouettes that don't scream "for size 0 and 2 only, and fabric choices that read luxury I don't know how I feel about the shoes; initially I was intrigued by the knee high open toed boots, but now they just come off as tacky. One thing of note, Uncle Karl's mini movie (Tale of a Fairy) did an excellent job making this collection come alive, and not be overlooked as boring. Because Karl Lagerfeld has an army of people working under him is such an over-achiever and produced a 70+ piece resort collection, it would seem pretty cumbersome to post images. Instead, I'm opting to just share the runway video (which comes in two parts). Enjoy the collection after the jump.
