Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Cruise show – a presentation of inter-seasonal, commercial clothing that originated, as the name suggests, as garb for the super-rich cruising around the Caribbean between the winter and summer fashion seasons. But these “pre-collections,” comprising as they do 70-85% of fashion houses’ sales, have become big business. Nowhere are they bigger than Chanel – at least, according to rumour. No public figures are released for the house, but with turnover reportedly in the billions, it’s reputably the biggest fashion house of them all.
They certainly pulled out the stops when it came to Cruise, setting a select few hundred press, well-heeled clients and celebrities including Tilda Swinton, Vanessa Paradis and the American singer Janelle Monae to sail off the Dubai coast to a man-made island. Amidst faux-Bedouin tents and flaming tapers was the Chanel venue: a modernist, custom built and double-c encrusted interpretation of a Middle Eastern souk.
