Chanel's just launched its first beachwear collection... and we've got our hands on it before everybody else!

One-piece swimsuit, Coco Beach de Chanel

Gabrielle Chanel felt just as at home on the sun-drenched beaches of Biarritz as she did on the tree-lined boulevards of Paris, and succeeded in revolutionising the dress codes of both. This season, Karl Lagerfeld salutes the more playful part of her personality with Coco Beach de Chanel, a fun, fresh, ready-to-wear and accessory collection designed for seaside resorts and summer destinations.

Seen for the first time in the Middle East in this exclusive shoot, expect iconic one- and two-pieces emblazoned with the supersized double-Cs set become summer’s hautest statement swimwear, while terrycloth robes becomes the post-plunge essential you never knew you needed. Even the classic espadrille with black toe cap gets a summer spin with printed plays on Chanel quilting.

The collection is only available in beachside resorts such as Saint-Tropez, Monaco, Cannes and Nice in France, then Barcelona in Spain, and Capri in Italy, and sunshine-steeped cities such as Palm Beach, Santa Fe, Honolulu and Dubai from mid-June through to September. Race you to the beach club!
