Vacations are being planned and those incredible resorts are being researched as we contemplate the best new destination to strut our stuff in, enjoy a few hours a day on the beach and discover all the exotic attractions that our time off from work affords us. We are definitely looking forward to lining our resort wardrobes with the latest in Chanel Seoul resort 2016 collection pieces, particularly those in the house’s signature tweed. Karl Lagerfeld showed off the latest in the cruise-perfect line-ups in Seoul. It appears as if the Korean traditions have done much to incur inspirations for designs that would do the label justice while making perfect sense for your summer vacation. There were so many colors and a whole shebang in sugar rushes making this rather sweet concoction one of the best Chanel’s produced this year. All the cravings one may have would have been satisfied with this kaleidoscope of candy treats turned into garment designs.
Lagerfeld took on the business perspective as Chanel is wont to do. The audience itself was stylish, to say the least, and the perfect customers for the fun meets trendy, professional meets flirty pieces that were walked down that runway
“I have no idea of any kind of practical life,” Lagerfeld tried to explain, “declaring that the extent of his household activity was opening the fridge door,” states Style.com. Somehow, though, we have to agree with the website’s observation that there was quite a bit of practicality in the collection itself, from the leather stocking style boots to the little jackets with the half belts high on the back.
The Chanel Seoul resort 2016 collection had a whole lot of quirky as well! From the Mary Janes worn with socks to the stacked accessories, the maximalist feel was strong and went well with the candy factory style setting that matched the colourful designs brought forth. The box shaped handbag in fluoro pink will certainly be one of those highly coveted pieces from this particular collection! And if you were thinking about doing your hair like that spotted on the set, we suggest watching Star Wars and checking out Princess Leia with her buns and braids piled high onto her head. Just make sure that the fake additions class with the natural hair color for an even more of a glamorous appeal according to Chanel.
Perhaps one of the best bits from the show was the use of Korean culture within the collection. This included that Leia-esque hair, but also the traditional dress turned modern Chanel that was so very pretty and quite suitable for the lady who enjoys a touch of Asian with her French label. The hanboks were turned into sweetly delicious baby doll like pieces that the audience fawned over and that which brings a whole new direction to the fashion house. Now we wonder if Chanel will decide to emulate local cultures in other exotic or simply lesser known places. Perhaps they will take a chapter from Kim Kardashian’s book and revive the olden traditions lost in time, showing off the Armenian dress just as Dolce & Gabbana had done of late?
Everyone from Kristen Stewart to Isabelle Huppert were taking up the front row seats, with 12 guests alone seen sporting the piece Gisele Bundchen had worn in the spring 2015 show. Gisele Bundchen herself showed up to the show, flying over to Korea and once again having us wonder if she is fully retired yet. We are more than sure that Coco Chanel herself would have been very proud of Lagerfeld’s accomplishments as his designs are worn by many of the top professionals in the world soon after their release in the markets.
