On May 5th, 2022 Chanel launched its new collection Cruise 2022/2023 on well decorated promenade of Monte Carlo.
Virginie Viard decided to go from Paris to French Riviera and that’s why we have seen some beach lifestyle of Monaco in this collection. The cinematic trailer for the collection was directed by Sofia and Roman Coppola featuring models Blesnya Minher, Vivienne Rohner, Lyna Khoudri, Mariam de Vinzelle and Hyun Ji Shin depicting the seaside elegance of Monte Carlo.
The prominent reason to choose French Riviera or what is generally called Côte d’Azur in French is to incorporate the inspiration that came from the very glamorous beaches of Monte Carlo. Côte d’Azur literally means ‘coast of azure’ and we all know that Azure is a shade of blue, a blue that is spread in whole sky.
Like always Virginie didn’t fail to embody the sunny spirits and vignettes into the collection which was utterly influenced from cosmopolitan beaches of Monte Carlo, giving an all-brand new life to the collection which included its traditional Tweed jacket and skirt alongside tweed jumpsuits and blouses.
The Chanel flag was hoisting in cool, breezy wind of Southern France’s beach hotel with its unique and distinctive monogram. The guest list was curated with including only few friends of the House and ambassadors of the luxury label. Kristen Stewart, global brand ambassador of the house was seen wearing black, sparkly sequined minidress.
South Korean boyband member, G-Dragon, also attended the cruise show and he was also the only Male brand ambassador to attend the show donning blue Chanel cardigan and jewellery. He finished off the look with small Chanel purse and ribbon loafers.
The royal member, Charlotte Casiraghi, attended the show in all denim look head to toe. Tilda Swinton, Sofia Coppola, Vanessa Paradis, Carole Bouquet, Khadja Nin, Abd Al Malik and Caroline de Maigret also attended the cruise show 2022/23 at a beach hotel in Monte Carlo.
The collection unfolded as imaginative inspiration gathered from coasts and Monte Carlo’s cosmopolitan heritage and elegance which came up time to time when seen the details. This is surely concluded as a new chapter in history of Chanel. The house mentions this as a shared history between Chanel and Monaco.
The pieces in the collection display a unique mix of elegance, glamour and not to forget the summer sports. The collection hosts abundancy of sequined ensembles and breezy crochet designs. Here we present few looks of Chanel Cruise 2022/2023.
High fashion tweed sets are something globally recognized in the name of Chanel and we are seeing varieties of tweed sets. The waterfront view and the sequined ensembles were a perfect amalgamation. Long plissé skirt trimmed with grosgrain ribbons entirely showcased Virginie Viard’s inspiration.
Silk twill blouses and ensembles comprising rhinestones and sparkly crystals accentuated the collection. The water sports and summer sports were apparent in the racquet shaped chain bags and other few. Metallic sneakers and Chanel monogram sneakers are mandatory essentials of the collection.
