Chanel Cruise 2020 – Chanel et La Voyage

04.05.2019 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Yesterday afternoon Chanel presented their first resort collection following the death of their late creative director Karl Lagerfeld. The collection’s theme: Chanel et la Voyage , was an ode to the brand’s double legacies of Karl Lagerfeld and Gabrielle Chanel and their love of train stations.

The collection organized by Artistic Director Virginie Viard, carried a theme approved by Lagerfeld, presented in their routined spot in the Grand Palais. The space was transformed to resemble the train stations of vacation spots across the world including Rome, The French Riviera,  Bombay, among others.

This inspiration for railway travel was sparked by Gabrielle and Karl’s direct love for train stations. “On August 28, 1952, I arrived at the Gare du Nord in Paris. The city seemed to me to come straight out of the movies and books that had me so fascinated. I came here to spend two years in high school, but my stay in Paris was a little prolonged, ” remembered Lagerfeld. Ms. Chanel’s fondest of the stations stemmed from both as a meeting point for herself and lover Boy Chapel, as well as a source of inspiration, “You can find all the great works in the paperbacks at train stations,” she noted.

The collection featured Chanel’s signature tweed in skirt suits with ballerina slippers and jumpers, it also saw chiffons and lace dresses ,  jacket suits worn over leggings  and bat wing sweaters. The palette was a mix of bright reds, pinks and purples with tints of black, brown, grey and navy blues. Accessories were of course in abundance with waist bags, harnesses among others.
