Resort 2011: Chanel

WOAH it's resort time already? Jesus. Well, we're kicking things off with Chanel who is all about a super rad 90's hippie vibe this season. There were sheer, delicate, flower print maxi gowns worn with little flat gold sandals. Freja wore a particularly AWESOME white suit that borrows a cue or two from the fabulous Bianca Jagger.I think the jacket and the trousers hold the perfect tension between them; the jacket's soft tailoring is the perfect anchor to ankle-length wide flowy pants.

Majorly into this laser-cut leather and lace combo dress, it reminds me of the totally legendary babydoll dresses that Phoebe Philo did for Chloe in 2006 (on the right, for your viewing pleasure). It was good back then and it's really really good right now too.

The long knit dresses are totally 90's in that really awkward/awful way that like, Elaine Benes used to dress? Except this time around it's actually cute! We end with the piece-de-resistance, laser-cut leather running shorts. Get into it darling, it's St. Tropez!

I too love this collection, I agree about the 90s trends all of the sudden being really cute and applicable as well.
