Chanel Resort 2014 Collection: The Sport of Queens

Chanel Resort 2014 Runway Looks

From a retail standpoint, Resort is the most important collection for brands. These are the clothes that stay in stores the longest and have influence over the upcoming Spring/Summer collections.

The thick straps on the shoulder bags said it all. This Resort season, Karl unveiled a sporty and relaxed interpretation of Chanel (in sizzling Singapore, no less!). Karl also proved Resort is no prelude to the event; it’s the main attraction. This is a complete wardrobe, packed with many of Chanel’s iconic details: heaps of draped pearls, drop-waist tunics, a plethora of black dresses, flower appliqués, and boyish tailoring. Not to mention the workmanship. Treatments like latex-trimmed lace and beaded embroideries are made to bring a fantastical quality to otherwise simple garb, like the pairing of a mini-dress and sneakers.

With the vibe of slouchy luxury in full effect (think glamorous post-workout attire and nonchalant eveningwear), the bags upped the ante of each look. Most maintained a quintessential Chanel air, from the quilted box bags to the classic chain-straps (whether bunched in the hand or hanging from the shoulder), but a few – like a glittering mini top-handle and a clutch fashioned like a bottle of Chanel perfume – are real showstoppers. At once paying homage and catapulting the house deeper into the new millennium, Karl just brought even more value to the Resort season.
