Chanel Cruise 2009 Collection Preview

We all expect great things from Chanel and the hugely successful and recognizable style house has delivered once again with its Cruise 2009 Collection. Pieces are extremely tasteful as always, but chief designer Karl Lagerfeld is keeping things interesting with modern interpretations of 1970's style to make this year's jetsetter more fashionable than ever.

Of course, black and white dominate the collection with tailored pants suits, chic bathing suits, and ever-flattering silhouettes. Fun and funky pieces include tie-dyed t-shirts, wide leg pants, and hippie-inspired headbands. Some pieces even have clear plastic in cut outs from the black fabric of dresses—a surprisingly pleasant touch to otherwise very conventional and classic pieces.

The collection's accessories also range from classic to contemporary with dainty bracelets to chunky, beaded necklaces. One of our favorite accessories of the collection: a pair of fabulous sunglasses with a very tasteful pearl detail.

The 74 piece collection will be sure to prepare you for your holiday getaway—whether it be to Miami or the Almafi Coast.
