On Tuesday 13 May, Karl Lagerfeld presented the CHANEL 2014/2015 Cruise show on The Island in Dubai. A landmark event for Dubai’s fashion and luxury industry, at sunset and with the futuristic megapolis skyline as the backdrop, the designer offered a cruise trip from the Orient to the Occident. The show took place within a mashrabiya-inspired edifice made up of double C’s. The garments put forth revealed a multitude of exotic influences from the Far East seen through long beaded necklaces, lots of gold attire and intricate mosaic-like patterns.
