Chanel Cruise Collection 2014/2015 was showcased in Dubai, the fashion capital of the Middle East. 1000 VIP guests were transported in traditional wooden boats known locally as abras to a remote island in the middle of the Arabian Sea. The show was held inside a custom-built glass cialis online cheap structure that was decorated with palm trees and floor seating as guests were treated to a completely Middle Eastern inspired collection that included a petrol-can quilted handbag, harem pants and ghutra-printed jackets; and of course heavily kohled eyes on the models.
In the emblematic colour palette of Chanel, white, black and beige and even dark blue – with touches of fuschia, midnight blue, red and floral prints, Karl Lagerfeld took the audience on a journey to the Orient. He reinterpreted certain elements from the local culture and traditions mixed with contemporary lines and forms. Three-piece suits and trompe l'oeil trousers, wide-legged and skinny trousers, long and mini tunics, short overalls, pleated blouses, jackets and boleros with three-quarter length sleeves, the collection is one of femininity-audacious and refined.
Local and regional celebrities flocked to the event with many donning the latest Chanel runway pieces and include Actress Tilda Swinton, Dakota Fanning, Frieda Pinto, Vanessa Paradis, Sheikha Lulu Al Sabah, and Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel amongst others.
