It's no use sittin' here singin' the blues
So be my guest, you've got nothin' to lose
Won't you let me take you on a sea cruise?
Chorus:
Whoo-ee, whoo-ee baby
Whoo-ee, whoo-ee baby
Whoo-ee, whoo-ee baby

It wasn’t long ago I penned “Is Fashion Dead?” but I got the message today …. Loud and clear with a resounding NO ... it is very much alive chez Chanel in the hands of the savvy Karl Lagerfeld. If you’re looking for clothes that will produce shock and awe ... nothing to see here just keep moving…..

When fashion brands  have gone stark raving wild trying to outdo each other with one more “more is better” outfit or one more oversized anything hanging off the shoulder, along saunters the Kaiser… cool as can he be,  smart as a whip and mean as a snake…. Laughing all the way!

The collection recalls what resort (cruise)  was in the glory days of fashion …  it was resort wear, clothes you took on vacation with  you when you traveled to warmer climes. So in the deafening symphony of blues Chanel delivers an incredibly commercial collection with few bells and whistles … and oh yes plenty of clunkers but his boo boos are still head and shoulders about what passes for good fashion today.

There is softness, femininity, narrow legs, full  legs, tailleurs, lots of dresses, split midriffs, Mary Janes, white hose, plenty of accessories and of course jaunty berets all ready for that sea cruise. The clothes are effortless; require no explanation and one might say that there is something for everyone here.
