Originally planned to show in Capri, Italy, the Cruise 2021/22 collection debuted virtually due to the pandemic – many designers were forced to adopt new methods due to movement restrictions – from the limestone quarries of the Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence in the south of France. Rebellion is the name of the game for Cruise 2021/2022, with black tweed, leather fringing, graphic prints and acid-wash denim reigning supreme. Virginie Viard was inspired by 1959 film Le Testament d’Orphée, directed by and starring artist-poet Jean Cocteau, who was a close friend of Gabrielle Chanel; the founder was the first designer to create a cruise collection, releasing the first in 1910 for clients that holidayed in warmer climes in the winter season.
