Karl Lagerfeld Brings Big Ideas with Chanel Resort 2018

The Chanel Resort 2018 collection gives me visions of pottery, oily snacks and Jacqueline Onassis.

The overall collection is bland and typical of what Karl Lagerfeld has designed before, but the outfits that work are bold and innovative.

The models wear accessories that are meant to make them look like Grecian goddesses regardless of the outfit. The chokers, the thin headbands and the gladiator sandals frame the outfits and point to the Grecian theme.

Top model Cara Taylor wears a striking shirtdress with that convenient naval-inspired drawstring. The horizontal stripes of terracotta brown, black and gold are rich.

The tiered ruffles of this dress resemble seashells and ruffled potato chips. The inclusion of dark tweed fabric evokes the classic Chanel suit, which begs the question: is this a dress or a suit?  It’s hard to tell.

In a moment of simplicity, Chanel muse Mica Arganaraz wears the collection’s subtly bold outfit. She wears—gasp!—sweater and jeans, but with a gilded leaf appliqués. The simple outfit and big glamorous sunglasses evokes former First Lady Jacqueline Onassis in her 1970s period. The clutch indicates Mica is headed to a party.

There are many ideas to take away from the collection. The gladiator sandals can be worn with cropped jeans, shorts or a skirt. Women can take advantage of open-necklines like wearing chokers with sweaters.
