THE CRUISE,
THE TIME FOR A STOP OVER
WITH CHANEL

More than just a tradition, setting out on a journey for the Cruise collection is a highly anticipated rendezvous. It’s the guarantee of a change of scenery, discovering a place, an era, an "art de vivre".



By the end of Autumn 1919, Gabrielle Chanel brought forth the first ever Cruise Collection, unaware that it would initiate an entire fashion movement. Lighter, imperatively more comfortable, these unlined designs in jersey were ideal for yachting, spa town, seaside resorts, and sun-drenched destinations.



In 1983 when Karl Lagerfeld arrived, he breathed new life into this hyphen between two seasons, turning it into one of the most important moments in the year. Not only did he respond to the needs of those who seek sunshine in the winter, but he transformed "Cruisewear" into a line that anticipates the coming of warmer days. He created a collection that embodies holiday hotspots all around the world: New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Venice, Saint Tropez, the Cap d'Antibes, Singapore, Seoul, Tokyo, and of course, Paris.

THE SPRING-SUMMER 2019 SHOW
AS SEEN BY THE WRITER ANNE BEREST

If clothing-as-object is at once textual and textile, it’s because those words have a common etymology, the Latin textilis — a reminder that the weave of a fabric also can correspond to that of a story. Materials can be transformed into a narrative thread — the ones in the CHANEL by the sea show spin the story of an extremely precise gesture — that of slipping off shoes and walking barefoot along the shore. With colors as fresh and zesty as a pink dawn on a summer’s day, the clothes are a vehicle in the chemical sense of the term: they’re volatile, and therefore transmit particles of instantaneous images.

And suddenly we, all the spectators, rediscover that clear and powerful emotion of turning up trouser cuffs in order to let the waves caress our ankles. It’s a tiny emotion that contains an immense idea of freedom. And this emotion brings with it a multitude of images: midnight swims and coming home in the wee hours of the morning, cocktails sipped through fluorescent straws, bare skin rubbing against swimsuits — and young girls in Marcel Proust’s imaginary resort village of Balbec kissing the salty lips of surfers in Baja, California, or Gabrielle Chanel brezing into Deauville for a date with destiny…

It’s Karl. Each of his shows is the recreation of a discernable memory. Slipped between the view and the clothes are strata of time that layer together moments that are remembered, dreamed or imagined. With a gesture, an object, a décor, he transports us into a suspended moment, somewhere between remembrance of those who have gone before and prescience about lives yet to come. Karl Lagerfeld never puts women in a tricky situation: he never mocks, disquiets or parodies them — on the contrary, he accompanies them and gives them the artillery of self-confidence. Therein, too, resides his astonishing modernity.
