We saw a selection of dresses and trousers suits made of luxurious leathers and thick wools.

Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel lead the fashion design pack to a fantasia place which bring their Chanel Resort 2012 collection with a total immersion experience where the meaning of “croisière” is at its most glamorous. This Chanel Resort 2012 runway was reviewed by Sarah Mower and she say “This is one of the most beautiful places in the world, no?”. The Chanel Resort 2012 fashion design was inspired in sitting on a deck overlooking the Mediterranean Sea at the Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc in Antibes. The inspiration is this hotel is flawlessly kept, and there is a different dress code here, one has to dress to match the yachts and other cannot be sloppy.
