The Chanel pre-spring/summer 2015 collection was presented off of an artificial island near the coast of Dubai.
To attend the show by creative director Karl Lagerfeld, guests boarded boats which took them to the island where the event occurred.
Tilda Swinton, Freida Pinto and Dakota Fanning were just some of the A-list actresses that arrived in Dubai to see the latest ready-to-wear collection from the French luxury brand.
“A romantic idea, without any folkloric touch, of an Orient of my imagination of the 21st century,” stated Lagerfeld of his collection. In terms of colors, the line was grounded in neutral colors, with plenty of black, white, gold, beige and navy. Certain pieces were accented with touches of fuchsia, red or floral prints.
Karl’s godson, Hudson Kroenia, closed the show in a traditional men’s thobe—the white dress worn by locals. After the show, guests stayed on the Chanel oasis to enjoy the Arab-style banquet and after-party in tents festooned with shisha pipes for their smoking pleasure.
Of course, who doesn’t want a Chanel gas-can shaped bag?
