Chanel Cruise 2011 Bags, Shoes And Accessories
Presented on the sun kissed streets of beautiful St. Tropez... 70's-ish diaphanous caftans, long crocheted dresses, ruffle-lapelled silk jersey trouser suits, and patchwork denim skirts were sent sashaying down Chanel Cruise 2011 runway presentation.
The ready to wear collection was casual and down to earth and therefore it was no surprise Chanel's cruise 2011 accessories followed the same easy breezy theme... being lighter in feeling and cheery in colours. Plenty of gingham checks are used. Done in dashes of pink, or handsome black and white, they are definitely ready to coerce you to part with your consumer dollars come resort season. Cute brooches, bracelets, amazing fabric totes (the black and white checks version is one which I do not mind getting myself!) and shoes cleverly demonstrates Chanel's savvy take on this otherwise classic yet charming pattern.
Shoes for Cruise 2011 season are non killer heights, with many variations of flats and low heels. Most notable is the tall gold, ballet-gladiator like sandals which stood out in an instant from the collection!
A refreshing change in mood that heralds the coming of Spring Summer season, especially after the cold months of winter...
