We’ve seen our fair share of Mondays and can attest to the fact that they’re all just a little rough to navigate. No matter how much you like your job, your coffee, or your social life, Monday afternoon is the farthest from the weekend you can get, so a little extra boost of energy is always needed. Enter Karl Lagerfeld and the latest Chanel cruise collection campaign.
Last we saw these designs they—and many of fashion’s elite—were parading around Havana in May. Cuba, of course, was the bright, bold background of the runway show, as well as the main inspiration for pieces in the resort collection itself. Now, with the newly released images shot by none other than Lagerfeld, we’ve been reminded again of the colorful aesthetic, effortless styling combinations, and, naturally, the incorporation of classic Chanel pieces. This time around, they have been reimagined with more flare—think fringe, beading, and tropical prints—and they’ve been accented with scarves and Panama hats.
>Truly, it’s the kind of campaign that sparks wanderlust, which is just the kind of midday mental escape we could all use.
>Check out all the images in the resort campaign, below.
