Chanel Resort Collection 2019
The permanent creative director of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, presented a new cruise collection of the spring / summer season 2019. The designer continues to draw inspiration from the water theme: he devoted the last collection of the spring / summer season to the beauty and strength of the waterfalls; show in December Metier`s dArt was held in Hamburg, where the models were turned into sailors. Now for a new cruise collection, Karl Lagerfeld built a huge liner in the Grand Prix of Paris. The liner was named La Pausa in honor of Villa Coco Chanel in the town of Roquebrune-Cap Martin on the Cote d’Azur.
To choose as the main decoration, the ship of Karl Lagerfeld pushed the appearance of the liner “Rex”, which appeared in the frames of the 1973 film “Frederikko Fellini” Amarcord. Look at the scale production came Marco Robbie, Lily-Rose Depp, Kristen Stewart and others.
“I like boats, ocean liners in the interwar period and everything else, but in real life I prefer houses with my things around me, because I have claustrophobia when I’m on the ship: it feels like I’m cut off from the world,” – says the designer.
It is the new cruise that is most closely connected with the history of the Chanel Fashion House and the interests of Coco Chanel itself. Mademoiselle loved to rest by the water, she often left Paris for cities such as Deauville, Venice and Biaritz. It is to these places that the last collection of fragrances Les Eaux de Chanel is dedicated. Also Coco Chanel often traveled with the Duke of Westminster on his yacht, showing off a “sea” wardrobe with vests, spacious trousers and neat hats.
In the collection you could see traditional things for rest on the water – striped trousers of loose cut, knitted jumpers with long sleeves, club jackets of dark blue color and variations on its theme, as well as snow-white skirts in the fold, which can often be found in seaside resorts beginning of the twentieth century. Then on the podium were presented more vivid images – the classic marine scale Karl Lagerfeld diluted several shades of pink and blue, and then shaded them with flashes of red and electrician.
