This time of year is traditionally when designers bring out their cruise or resort collections. A cruise collection is a pre-collection originally created for more wealthy clients who would be going on cruises or jetsetting around the globe after Christmas and would need lighter clothes more suitable for hotter climates.
Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel usually does a film piece to accompany his collections and this film entitled “The Tale of a Fairy” for Cruise 2012 is gorgeous. It stars Amanda Harlech, Kristen McMenamy, Anna Mouglalis, Freja Beha Erichsen, Bianca Balti and many more. The acting is a little over the top and unintentionally funny at times but the clothes…oh the clothes…. McMenamy’s first outfit, classic monochrome Chanel, is to DIE for and her peroxide hair with luminously pale white skin is striking and über chic. Enjoy!
