Denim On The Runway: Chanel Resort 2013

There was quite the debate going on last week over Jenna Lyons and her perhaps-ill-fitting-if-not-daring dressed up denim at the Met Gala. If you thought that was extreme, then you may want to excuse yourself for the remainder of this post.

Never one to shy away from a bit of opulence, Karl Lagerfeld showed his Resort 2013 collection for Chanel on Monday, at the palace of Versailles, outside Paris, France. As fountains spat plumes of water that sparkled in the spring sunlight, models strut through the gravel in fantastical, punk-y interpretations on the era of  Antoinette (Marie, that is).

Believe it or not, many of these looks were cast in denim and chambray, giving the dramatic shapes and embellishments a more accessible, contemporary spin. Worn all at once, certainly these looks are a lot for the average woman. But let me tell you, I am loving the military-inspired denim jacket on the far left, and the ornate zip-up dress on the far right.

What do you think about Chanel’s resort denim? Too much? Not enough? See the whole collection here.
