Summer is here, and it seems these days that swimwear is considered to be another form of high fashion. Creative genius behind Chanel, our favourite Mr. Karl Lagerfeld, designed and executed this stunning black and white shot of model Saskia de Brauw for the Chanel 2012 Resort ad campaign, for which he hired former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, and close friend, Carine Roitfeld to help style the entire campaign.

It is unusual for black & white to be a top choice for retailers looking to sell clothes, as consumers usually want a clear colour shot of what each piece looks like, however, as creative designer, Lagerfeld is all about design and imagination. Who wants to join the Chanel beach party? Wouldn't that be just spectacular!
