As a long-time admirer of the classical era, Karl Lagerfeld looks to Greek Antiquity for the latest Chanel Cruise collection. In reinterpreting the ancient Greek silhouette, the designer offers an idealised vision, juxtaposing draped shoulder structure lines with modern belted waists. The line-up is also laced with subtle symbolic details, such as owl and oak-leaf motifs. The collection is testimony to Chanel’s ability to combine heritage with modernity.
