The Chanel Spring/Summer 2012 campaign has been unveiled and it's a doozy! Captured entirely in black-and-white, the images offer a spectacular sight over the water at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France.

Photographed in the same location where the Resort 2012 runway show took place, the campaign stars models Saskia de Brauw and Joan Smalls. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, I love the action of these photos which depict the ladies performing all kinds of gymnastic manoeuvres. With the help of props such as a double bar, pommel horse, rope ladder and a swing suspended in mid air over the water, Brauw and Smalls use the apparatus to help show off how the clothing moves.

My opinion - very graceful and unique. What's yours?
