Chanel's Spring/Summer 2012 collection also paid homage to the trend with a rather grandiose show that opened with Florence & The Machine performing a set, dressed entirely in the collection, in the centre of a giant oyster. In contrast to the extravagant set (the room was decorated to resemble a giant sea-bed with life-size sea shells and seahorses), the clothing followed Chanel's trademark formula that less is more. The minimalist gowns nodded subtly towards the trend - the classic white jacket was updated with a gold trim adorned with tiny seahorses, billowing hemlines were reminiscent of the foam of the ocean and pearls were featured heavily on delicate belts and even sprinkled in models' hair. It is common knowledge that anything touched by Lagerfeld turns to gold - the fact that the influential designer based his entire collection around the beauty of the ocean is a positive indication that this trend is here to stay.
