To the Runway! - Chanel and DVF Resort 2011

Thought it was time to head back to the runway with the recent Resort 2011 collections!  Starting off of course with the one and only Chanel collection.  Mr Lagerfeld has done it again!  I am never disappointed with a Chanel collection.  The collection has the evident signature Chanel touch, however, I love the collection's versatility and 1970's feel.  The collection includes the use of boucle tweed jackets, flowy caftans, stunning maxi dresses, adorable mini dresses and skirts, high waisted flares and shorts, dashes of vibrant colour, denim and pretty swimwear.  The collaboration of colours including, pastels, nudes, earthy tones and of course black and white is exquisite!  Here are a few of my favourites.
The Diane Von Furstenberg's 'La Petite Valise' collection, definitely left a lasting impression!  Models walking through giant keyholes as they stepped onto the catwalk.  I love the feminine 1940's beach vibe with a combination of cute dresses, high waisted shorts and adorable swimwear.  Her use of prints is amazing and love the simple, yet elegant colour palete.   
Be sure to check back for more Resort 2011 collections.
