GUESTS AT THE
CRUISE 2018/19 SHOW

Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp and Margot Robbie were among the guests at the Cruise 2018/19 show in Paris. They discovered Karl Lagerfeld’s Cruise 2018/19 collection under the glass nave of the Grand Palais, transformed into a cruise ship terminal for the occasion.

THE BERET
CRUISE 2018/19

This season, models wearing a seafaring-inspired beret are poised to embark aboard "La Pausa". Shaped without seams, it creates a pure, curved line. Supple, in textured tweed sometimes embroidered with sequins, it harmonizes with the looks for added attitude. At times in solid white, at others in white cross-hatched with blue or a tricolor of white, coral and apricot, it reflects the Cruise collection’s summery inspiration.

LA PAUSA, AN EMBLEM OF
CRUISE 2018/19

This season, Karl Lagerfeld infuses silhouettes with the air of the Mediterranean Sea. Echoing the name of the villa Gabrielle Chanel built, perched in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the Riviera, "La Pausa" is printed on the buttons of tweed jackets, bracelets and sweaters in the Cruise 2018/19 collection.

INVITATION TO THE VOYAGE

Gabrielle Chanel's love of yachting and the seaside provided her with opportunities to take a break from her busy life in Paris, recharge her batteries and find new inspiration. This luxurious pastime took her to fashionable destinations in the company of friends, from Monte Carlo to Venice. Photographs from this era show her radiant in the Mediterranean sunshine with the Duke of Westminster. She is pictured posing on his yachts the Flying Cloud and Cutty Sark, wearing pleated pants or Bermuda shorts and a mannish waistcoat.

A striking sepia print shows her lounging on the fore deck, elegantly dressed in a simple polo shirt and loose linen slacks. With her chic, relaxed look, Gabrielle Chanel is the very image of the modern woman, a woman ahead of her times.
