Chanel Athletics Spring-Summer 2012 Campaign Shot by Karl Lagerfeld

Chanel Athletics Spring Summer 2012 Ad Campaign

It’s still cold outside but our glossies will soon be featuring the best of what’s to come this spring and summer. Chanel just released their Chanel Athletics Spring-Summer 2012 Campaign Shot images.  The campaign features Saskia de Brauw and Joan Smalls as the best dressed gymnasts ever, was styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

This is the second Chanel campaign styled by Carine Roitfeld but these shots are not as whimsical as the campaign featuring Freja Beha. The Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection was inspired by the sea, so not surprisingly the sea is prominent in most of the photos. The campaign was shot at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France – the location of the Chanel 2011/2012 Cruise Collection.  The photos are beautiful and represent the simplicity and elegance that is the Chanel brand.

Chanel Cruise 2011/2012 Accessories

The Chanel Cruise 2012 accessories are online now and we can see the pieces in detail. Each piece is exquisite and it’s very difficult to choose favorites when they are all so stellar. I especially like the pops of color like the lemon yellow and sky blue. View all of the accessories below…

Making of the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 Press Kit

Making of the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 LookbookChanel News posted some images of the making of the Cruise 2011/12 look book.  I like how they’ve been doing their “behind the scenes” images in black and white – it’s so Chanel.  Looks like Karl Lagerfeld shot the campaign – I don’t know the name of the model – someone fill me in if you know.  The images below were shot at Studio 7L, Paris by Olivier Saillant.  The trio of artists are Sam Mc Knight (hair), Anny Errandonea (nails) and Peter Philips (makeup).  I’m drooling over the shoes, chains, brooches and camellias… and I spy a Chanel comet necklace used as an armhole of a sleeve!  Can’t wait to see the finished product!

First News: Chanel Cruise Collection Film

Freja Beha Erichson, Lady Amanda Harlech, Anna Mouglalis and Kristen McMenamy

The Chanel Cruise show will set sail on May 9th and will show in Antibes, a resort town on the Côte d’Azur, located between Cannes and Nice. To coincide with the collection, Karl is making a movie featuring some of his ladies du jour including Freja Beha Erichson, Lady Amanda Harlech, Anna Mouglalis and Kristen McMenamy.   The movie will be shot on location in Monaco and other hot spots in the South of France.  I’m a bit surprised that this cruise collection will also be centered around the Côte d’Azur because the last Cruise collection was as well.  I’m sure it will have a different feel – I’m really curious to see how Karl will switch it up.
