Coco Returns to Venice


Following last year’s show in Miami, Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel’s 2010 Resort collection to the charming city of Venice—where the legendary Coco resided for ten years.  On Thursday night, a runway presentation took place on the Lido beach at the recently renovated Excelsior Hotel.  A magical display of striped Gondola tees and over-sized sailors’ uniforms mirrored nautically-inspired swimwear and classic Chanel tweed suiting separates. The looks were topped off with thirties-style bobs  and wide-brimmed hats. The Venetian Carnivale was also referenced with cloaks, Byzantine details like emblem-embellished prints and black sunglasses reminiscent of Carnivale masks.
