“Miami is a timeless and free place. With the sea and the sun all year long, it can only be relaxing. The perfect place to show a cruise collection,” declared Karl Lagerfeld. For this season, the designer imagined a collection of chic but laid-back looks: pastel colors, a lot of summery white as well as impeccable black, vinyl and tweed jackets, striped swimsuits, silk satin flares, belted jackets in beige toweling, large and voluptuous sweaters, a combination of structured and voluminous shapes and a collection of fun and luxurious jewelry. Over 300 international celebrities were invited to the early evening show. Among those in the front row: actresses Diane Kruger and Anna Mouglalis, the young Zoe Kravitz and tennis star Anna Kournikova – without forgetting Anna Wintour, of course.
For the Cruise 2008/9 Collection show in Miami
Before each Cruise Collection fashion show, Karl Lagerfeld organizes a private dinner where he brings together the celebrities who have traveled the world to come and see his show. This year, Karl Lagerfeld's intimate friends and favorite actresses met at Casa Tua: Joana Preiss, Diane Kruger, Anna Mouglalis and many more... A relaxing moment before the next day's event.
