Karl Lagerfeld presented the 2013 Chanel resort collection at Versailles and, taking his inspiration from the paintings of Antoine Watteau, gave it a sort of “Marie Antoinette, rocker chick” vibe. Uncle Karl brought a lot of crazy to the looks this time around, but we actually like quite a few of the original pieces (when you mentally break them down); the florals and rococo silhouettes, the colors. And even though it’s all a little nutty, we really dig the overall 18th-Century-France-through-a-kaleidoscope feel. Chanel isn’t a brand that can always do whimsy well, but this is right up its alley, so to speak.
