Chanel’s Resort 2019 Show Featured A Cruise Ship

By  |  0 Comments

Creative director Karl Lagerfeld built a marina inside the Grand Palais to show his latest for the French Maison.

“I like the idea of boats, of ocean liners during the interwar period and the rest, but in real life, I like houses on solid ground with my stuff all around me. I get claustrophobic [on boats] because you feel like you’re cut off from the world,” Lagerfeld demurred to Women’s Wear Daily.

Still, he tackled the nautical theme with his usual verve, blending relaxed sportswear silhouettes with elements of Sixties pop such as miniskirts, white tights, and silver or white Mary Janes, including a version with faintly clinical rubber soles. “On boats, there is less dirt and dust than elsewhere,” reasoned Lagerfeld according to a 2018 Women’s Wear Daily Report.

According to a Refinery29 2018 report,  the collection itself carried just as much oomph as the vessel you’re seeing not sailing the Atlantic but all over Instagram. Chanel staples were in full swing: pearl necklaces, tweed suiting in all of its changing silhouettes, statement accessories with a twist, and, of course, the Hadid sisters. But there were some new elements and faces to see, too, like the micro-midriff, the brand’s more demure version of baring navel, French navy hats replete with signature red pom-poms, distressed denim, and, oh, Adut Akech, the latest South Sudan newcomer who opened the show and its finale.

A young Chanel client, fully habituated to the scene, in a 2018 Vogue report he/she declared it “everything I’d like to wear when I get on a boat—the short dresses, the sailor pants, the prints. Easy.”

According to a 2018 Vogue report, After the show on the dock, Lagerfeld came out to wave to the audience with his longtime studio designer Virginie Viard. Then the gangplanks went down, the audience were bidden on board, and the set turned into a party ship, with oysters on deck and Captain Karl holding court in an imaginary white ballroom.


I tend to focus my attention outwards and am drawn to the external world of action. I learn a lot about the world through experience. Focusing on what I have seen, heard, or touched, gives me the ability to develop a practical and realistic outlook on the world. Making decisions based on impersonal criteria like principles and logic is very important to me.I accept responsibility for my actions. When I succeed, I accept the satisfaction of the achievement, and if I do fail at something, I learn from it and do better next time. I feel confident in my abilities and am accepting of myself. I have good time management skills. I am able to fit the most important things in life into my schedule. I have a strong sense of goal commitment.
