Resort 2014 : Chanel, Bottega Veneta and Diesel Black Gold

Resort 2014 is here! I'm preparing for my next big vacation in June and I'll be travelling a lot. It puts me in the right mood to review resort collections! Granted, I'm travelling to cold countries in Scandanavia, the beachy resort collections are still a treat to view! Chanel Chanel's resort collection as always, took place in another exotic place; this time Singapore. While some silhouettes borrowed from the traditional Singaporean dress, Lagerfeld interprets it in the classic Chanel-esque manner. If you love pearls, clean exhuberance, you'll love this collection.
