Presenting: Chanel Cruise Collection 2009

Presenting: Chanel's Cruise Collection 2009

For the Cruise Collection 2009, the theme seems to be stripes and different shades of blue, as observed from their Pret-a-Porter (or Ready to Wear collection). The showing for this Cruise Collection took place at the Raleigh Hotel in Miami, Florida, on a beautiful and unusually shaped runway right in the middle of the pool, symbolising the 'water' element that was evidently an inspiration in the RTW collection's shades of blue.

(Sorry for the lack of images, as these were the only ones of bags that I was able to find that featured bags).

Well, I can't really comment much on this collection as far as the bags go, but based on these 2 pictures here's what I think...

The Verdict: Chanel Cruise Collections are usually vibrant and artsy with bold prints. In short, they are bags with their own personality. This time around however, it looks a tad boring unlike the Chanel Cruise Collections that I'm used to seeing. The first bag looks a little Moschino-esque and dare I say, cheap looking. The striped 2.55, well, let's just say I've seen better. Unfortunately, judging from the 2 bags above, this collection is a let-down.
