CHANEL Resort 2018 can be summed up in the following list: Hellenic silhouettes and tropes—strappy (column heeled) sandals, jeweled golden armbands, ancient coins as buttons, heaped in beaded necklaces, taupe and natural -colored relief knits, faux-rustic chitons, metal laurel leaf paillettes clustered in neckpieces or painted on sweatshirts and a sweat-tee; toga-touched soft jersey goddess dresses [some of which I love, others look way too much like a Halloween costume], pants and shorts suits in sunset pastels and ancient white or seasoned ivory. Arm candy in a whole new context - literally worn over the bicep. Pretty much accessories galore - layer upon layer upon layer of beads and chains and beautiful motifs. I love the brazen forms, beaded detailing, and the fabric textures, and I need jelly gladiator sandals asap. Like a lot of this collection. Resort is one of those Collections where designers can play in a garden of summer, vacation, and beach inspirations. Photo: Yannis Vlamos / Indigita and here.
