Paris – Singapore: See the Chanel Cruise collection for 2014
Text: Sophia Deftereou
Famous models appeared on the catwalk for Chanel Cruise collection in Singapore. By the sound of a 50s melody by French sound designer Michel Gaubert, the show was held on a former nutmeg plantation and army barracks in Singapore’s Loewen Cluster on Dempsey Hill. There were sporty elements -some models were even wielding cricket bats- but there was also softness to the silhouette reminiscent. A flash of electric blue eyeliner complimented the fresh, powdered palette. The Cruise collection moved away from the tough, dark mood of autumn/winter 2013 and there were sophisticated references to Southeast Asia’s rich past in the loose shapes, raffia dresses and super-luxe, classic Chanel details.
