The details of each piece, outfit and look are what bring a collection together. Karl Lagerfeld used a series of design techniques to pull the Chanel Resort Collection together and make it correspond, which is how collection are formed - by the correspondence of pieces. In this installation of the Chanel Resort 2011 Analysis, I will cover the details used in the clothes as well as in make-up: the small details that have a big impact on the way the collection is seen. If you missed part one, find it here.
|Fine chained glass beaded jewellery and Chanel silver hand chains connecting to a ring on the middle finger.|
|The fine necklaces around the models neck use the same beads as the trim around the shoulder straps and around the waist, hips and matching bracelets.|
|I love the medallions built into the dress under the bust, teamed with a shell beaded necklace.|
|The straw shoulder bag is perfectly matched with the colour tones of the floral print. I adore the cascading netted chandelier necklace with shell pieces matching the bracelets.|
|The chunky and double charm necklaces also match the bracelets perfectly. I love the saddle bag with contrasting trim.|
|They say pearls make girls, right? This image perfectly shows the amount of detail put into the skirt of this dress. You can see the Chanel motif hanging from the necklace, a favourite among Chanel fans.|
|Using the same print as a previous look is a trick used by many designers; the medallion style belt also contributes to the coherence of the collection as the medallion was previously featured as a necklace.|
|This look is a favourite of mine because of its silhouette. Beautiful trim and a suede belt that draws the eye to the waist, a vintage inspired brooch and ring; they give great shape to the dress and bring the eye to specific places.|
|This swimsuit uses the same netted chain technique as the chandelier necklace, similar to the charm hand chains.|
|The dresses' horizontal black, cream and white stripes match the necklaces two tone beads.|
|Lace, beading, sequins, trim and cushioning details.|
|The candyfloss colours: the suede shoes match the pink of the horizontals stripes and the caramel of the leather bag does also.|
|I love the Pepto-Bismol colours of this look, the perfectly shaped halter and the most awesome textured material.|
|The cropped jacket and high-waisted trousers with full body beaded chains; the chains connect the belt to the necklace.|
|I love the belt brooch details which match a brooch shown earlier. If you look closer at the denim jeans you can see knot looking embroidery.|
|Chanels' make-up artists applied two layers of mascara to both the top and|
bottom lashes. Here you can see how the models hair was clipped back and, presumably,
sprayed to hold the style in place away from face.
|Fresh faced simplicity paved the Chanel make-up scene. |
By taking a leaf out of the backstage make-up artist you can enhance your
natural looks to feel more beautiful in yourself.
|The models fingers are painted that mint blue that gives|
a cool casual look to any girl.
