Coco Chanel is a legendary icon for nothing less than astonishing accomplishments in fashion. The Chanel Resort 2014 Collection borrows iconic styles from a younger Chanel and gives them a fabulous upgrade. “Welcome to the 21st century Chanel” the collection screams with an eclectic, edgy, rocker-chick element. The vast mixture of style and elegance is inspiring and monumental. The rocker-chick look is the delight of the show, blending elegant Chanel pearls with a daring, deep V-neck, sweater top. The look is completed with white flowing silk pants and white pointed toe shoes with a black tip. The model brings the look home with fierce, rocker chick bangs and cat’s eye make-up. On the other hand, the same look done in black, with a relaxed hairstyle and make up, has quite the opposite effect. The look is closer to the classic Chanel style.
The elegant outfit includes a white rose pinned to the sweater, and is completed with silver heels. The men of the show donned revised English sportswear, complete with a modern style rounders uniform. A feminine take on a business suit is one of the highlights of the show. The feminine, gray, tweed jacket with a form fitting, white, V-neck vest, is exceptionally stylish. The outfit charms with a pair of wide white pants and heels, flattered by the accessories, which include a silver embellished choker and a chain belt. The outfits presented in the show are fun, flirty, fierce, and highly fashionable for men and women. The Chanel upgrade, wonderfully done, took nothing away from the classic, iconic, Chanel looks of yesterday. They remain glamorous and desirable, as is the Chanel Resort 2014 Collection.
