Chanel 2013 Resort Collection: Let Them Eat Cake!

May 23, 2012

A few days ago, Karl Lagerfeld introduced his 2013 resort collection for Chanel. The extravagant affair took place in the gardens of Versailles and was reminiscent of Marie-Antoinette's frivolous era.

The models strolled around the Bosquet des Trois-Fontaines introducing a collection were denim, pastel-colored dresses, platform sneakers and pink makeup where the centerpieces.

The colorful event reminded me of the opulence depicted by Sofia Coppola in her whimsical movie Marie-Antoinette. Though I am very fond of this movie for its polychromatic costumes and accessories, its dashing hair pieces, its vibrant music and its appetizing sweets, I'm not quite sure I would go to the extend of embracing this larger than life fashion. That being said, there is nothing like seeing an assortment of candy-colored clothing to make me crave Ladurée macarons!

Here are a few glances at the collection:

Is this too over-the-top for you?
