Chanel Resort 2012

I heart Chanel…

Taking place at the legendary Hôtel du Cap along the coast in Antibes, the Chanel Resort 2012 collection was a master class in elegant sophistication.

Dresses and fits evoked a twenties / thirties aesthetic – reminiscent of Coco Chanel’s own Riviera style. Chanel herself attended parties at Hôtel du Cap with icons Picasso, Dalí and among many others.

Jacket seams were styled close to the body while pristine white evening gowns cut flatteringly to the body creating a ‘pure innocent seduction’. Each style of clothing was represented within the collection – from swimwear to evening – making it practical and indulgent.

In attendance at the presentation, style icons and Chanel favourites – Blake Lively, Clémence Poésy, Caroline Sieber and Alexa Chung.

Seductive, Elegant and Timeless Chic… A Chanel Enchantment Of Course

About Versace

As one of the few remaining family-run fashion houses, Versace’s flamboyant, colourful, figure-hugging creations are adored the world over.

Versace History

Versace was founded in 1978 by the late Gianni Versace in Milan. After early success, Gianni Versace called on his sister Donatella, to join him as an advisory eye and assist in developing the brand. The two worked together for most of the 1980’s and 1990’s, forming a highly fashionable team.

While Gianni Versace grew the fashion empire, Donatella Versace focused on their striking advertising campaigns; established the children’s line Young Versace; and worked as head designer on the diffusion label Versus. When Gianni Versace was killed on July 15, 1997; Donatella Versace took the reins as Creative Director. Since then, the Versace aesthetic has shifted it’s focus to encompass both Gianni Versace’s High Italian Glamour with her own rock’n’roll sensibility.

Versace On The Red Carpet

A favourite on the red carpet, January Jones regularly chooses Versace as her go-to label (pictured below in Versace). Other fans of Versace include: Madonna, Kate Hudson, Elizabeth Hurley, Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx and Courtney Love.

Versace Fall 2011

The Fall 2011 collection was classic, strong and sexy – the essence of Versace! Coats and jackets had a divine distinct military edge, while python skin coiled around the body in snake like strands and graphic elements from the house’s archives – a vine and flower – made for dramatic simplicity.
