Nautical isn’t going anywhere; Karl Lagerfeld confirms this notion via his heavy sea/sailor themed resort 2010 collection shown on Venice’s Lido (a sandbar island close to Venice that stretches about six miles).
Dubbed “Coco on the Lido,” and inspired by Coco Chanel’s time spent in Venice, pirates hats, capes, literal sailor’s costumes and beachwear in a bevy of solids and stripes appeared on the wooden boardwalk. As always with Chanel, it is a challenge to narrow down the collection to one favorite look, but if I must, I choose this vintage-inspired sailor dress that hits on the theme, as well as several Chanel signature items. Note the double-wristed bangles, cap toe flats, and belted high waist. Plus, as fun as the 30s wigs were on the other models, I prefer a more realistic take on resort, as seen on this wispy-haired model.
