Karl Lagerfeld turned to Ancient Greece for the inspiration behind his Chanel 2018 Resort Collection. Long known for creating elaborate sets to accompany his collections, Lagerfeld spared no resource recreating a Greek ruin as the lovely ladies modeled an assortment that screams resort life. The accessories are what make this collection great as the models are seen wearing tropes, jeweled golden armbands, ancient coins used for buttons and necklaces, knits, faux-rustic chitons, and metal laurel leaf paillettes clustered in neckpiece.
Lagerfeld said to Vogue in regards to the collection “The criteria of beauty in Ancient then Classical Greece still holds true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women. Or more beautiful columns. The entire Renaissance, in fact, was based on antiquity.” Check out some of our favorite pieces from the Chanel Resort 2018 Collection in the gallery.
