The Chanel Cruise show is reknowed for being creative and spectacular - in the past it's featured synchronised swimmers, live singing from Irina Lazareanu and a boardwalk on the beach. This season the Chanel crowd assembled in St Tropez, and models stepped off boats before parading down the street. Sometimes a runway simply isn't enough.
The model cast included name-of-the moment Crystal Renn as well as catwalk staples like Behati Prinsloo, Abbey Lee and Anja Rubik. And the grand finale saw Gerogia May Jagger, sporting thigh high leather boots and a nude babydoll dress and looking remarkable like Brigitte Bardot, speed down the street on the back of a motorbike.
As for the clothes? The collection had a decidedly retro feel, with flowing maxi dresses, macrame knits, gentle ruffles and various shades of tan, all teamed with barely-there make-up and bare feet to match. And of course there were cropped tweed jackets aplenty, teamed with high waisted shorts and chiffon blouses. Perfect attire for lounging elegantly on your yacht.More
