Chanel resort, 2010, from the Venice Lido

There will be a couple of events in runway fashion to be remembered. Much of it just mashes into seasonal sludge if you have been watching for more than a couple of years. In later recollections, a few will stand out, others will be dicussed in generalizations, with faulty recall as to what was shown when and in what color by whom.

Unlikely that anyone will ever forget Chanel having left Paris runway's to hold Resort, 2010 on the Venice Lido during Carnivale in a tribute to founder Coco Chanel's visits. Not only making a return to the place, but the hair and references as well.

While some of the program was played and perhaps too gimmicky (especially the gondalier menswear), on the whole, it was both masterful and memorable. And frankly, to get eveyone to go that far out of the way, it would have to be and only in the case of a house of Chanel's pedigree.

In no particular order but for the Carnivale masked and cloaked apparition, this is Chanel, the unforgettable Venice Lido show.

Wow. Amazing. I love the white lace dress at the end and the black gown is to die for. Every time I look at these I find something else wonderful.

The clothes are lovely; the hair will take some getting used to! Would love to see the film Coco Before Chanel.
