Dressing To Match The Yachts

"This hotel is flawlessly kept, and there is a different dress code here. One has to dress to match the yachts."

Or so Karl Lagerfeld described the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in Antibes to's Sarah Moyer after the 2012 Chanel Resort collection walked at the hotel against a back drop of the sparkling Mediterranean sea. "It's beautiful here, no?"

Who's going to argue with Karl? No matter what the dress code, I'd be happy to stop by for a glass of champagne.

And if you aren't quite sure what one wears when one must dress to match the yachts, the collection yielded some lovely suggestions.



Karl is nothing if not in touch with the zeitgeist, but I'm not sure how he anticipated what The Queen would wear to the Royal Wedding. Looks like HRH has started a trend.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go ponder what my drink order will be as I sit and watch the sun set over the Medditerranean.

Pretty dreamy, no?


  1. The Chanel show was out of this world! So beautiful. And I'd like to be in ANY of those locations right now.

  2. Don't you wish?! Eden Roc and Chanel - does it get any better?!

  3. I just saw an Assouline book yesterday all about Eden Rock. With Cannes just wrapping up....I'm daydreaming of looking chic, lounging on my friend's yacht!

    What are we waiting for?
