Well, I'm a few days late and a dollar short on this one, but in my defense, I've been traveling for work. I took the red eye home from San Francisco, landed bright and early this morning, and have just enough time to repack my bags before heading to a wedding on Cape Cod tomorrow.
So, while some of you have no doubt already seen images of the Chanel 2013 Cruise presentation in Cannes, just indulge me a little.
It was another over-the-top show from Karl Lagerfeld and another over-the-top remark from the designer post-show: "Frivolity is a healthy attitude. I know people who were saved by frivolity." (Has anyone come out with a page-a-day calendar of this man's quotes yet? That needs to happen.)
The runway may have lacked the drama of past Chanel presentations (see: giant ice floe), but the opulence of Marie Antoinette's Versailles court, paired with tennis shoes and set against the economic and political realities of present-day France, makes quite a strong impact on its own.
