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

Your Style Inspirations… xx

Thank you for all of your uber stylish input!

Thank you to everyone who tweeted me or left a message on Facebook with your style icons! I wish I could have included all of you in this post! I loved hearing about the people who inspire you. Many of you shared my love of the divine Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe while others chose women and men who I would never have thought of… your choices inspired me! 

Love Uptown Twirl xx
