7 Lust-Worthy Buys For Your Inner (Chanel-Loving) Deep-Sea Siren

Few words make a fashion-loving girl’s heart flutter like Chanel. Whether you favor the classic tweed suits and quilted bags of the ladies-who-lunch set, or love keeping up with Uncle Karl’s latest zany cyberpunk-meets-Marie-Antoinette collections, there’s not a girl alive who wouldn’t love to see those iconic interlocking Cs in her closet.
For summer '12, Kaiser Karl served us up a heaping dose of under-the-sea fantasy: Bags came in powdery pastel shades of seafoam green and aqua, shoes featured high heels gracefully sculpted to look like coral, and then there was that notorious $50,000 shell purse. This is classic Chanel glamour done with a light, fresh hand — and as always, we are très tempted by the chic siren call. Click on for our top seven seafaring picks of the summer.
