Chanel Cruise Collection 2014

Fashion show in Singapore

MOST POPULAR

Yesterday Cara Delevingne, Stella Tennant and Lindsey Wixson walked for Chanel, modelling their Cruise collection in Singapore to a 50s soundtrack by French sound designer par excellence, Michel Gaubert.
The show was held on a former nutmeg plantation and army barracks in Singapore’s Loewen Cluster on Dempsey Hill. The climate is as tropical – and Cruise appropriate - as they come.
Wherever Karl Lagerfeld shows – this small island state off mainland Asia included - he draws an epic crowd: Dakota Fanning and Carine Roitfeld were just some of the attendees flown in straight from the Met Ball in New York for the occasion.
As you might expect from a Cruise collection, there were sporty elements– some models were even wielding cricket bats – but there was also softness to the silhouette reminiscent, of Gabrielle Chanel. A flash of electric blue eyeliner complimented the fresh, powdered palette.
The Cruise collection moved away from the tough, dark mood of autumn/winter 2013 – this is Chanel in the holiday spirit, after all – and there were sophisticated references to Southeast Asia’s rich past in the loose shapes, raffia dresses and super-luxe, classic Chanel details.
Karl has done it again.
