Chanel disembarks with their Cruise 2019 Collection at the Grand Palais (Paris)
Karl Lagerfeld took spectators on a voyage along the high seas with a nautical-themed show for their latest collection that featured an oversized passenger ship in the very heart of Paris.
Karl Lagerfeld showed his unbound creativity with yet another impressive runway show. The new collection was presented against the backdrop of a cruise liner named ‘La Pausa,’ after Gabrielle Chanel’s summerhouse in the French Riviera. The collection, heavily laden with a nautical theme, featured a predominance of white and navy colors. The style was a nostalgic nod to holiday fashion of the 1920s when Chanel first made her mark on the fashion scene.
It featured very feminine silhouettes in cropped jackets and sailor trousers. Chanel’s signature tweed was present in an abundance of garments from jackets to dresses and berets. The accessories of the collection, like rope fisherman’s totes and lifesaver handbags also played into the theme. Stella Maxwell, Gigi and Bella Hadid were some of the models that walked the show, while Chanel regulars like Lily-Rose Depp and Kirsten Stewart watched from the front row. Lagerfeld took his bow from the dock of the ship before lowering gangplanks for the audience to board the ship for a party on deck.
