Chanel Cruise 2023 has our hearts racing…
Monte-Carlo has long served as inspiration for Chanel: Gabrielle Chanel discovered the Principality of Monaco in 1910 and, in 1988, Karl Lagerfeld purchased Villa La Vigie as a summer escape. Worlds away in the heart of the Middle Eastern desert, surrounded by mountainous terrain and wild greenery, Monegasque pastimes find themselves once more serving as inspiration: this time, for MOJEH’s January fashion story.
Virginie Viard captures the spirit of the Riviera for Chanel Cruise 2022/23 where sophistication, freedom and the Formula One come together to represent the modern Chanel woman. The Grand Prix is celebrated with black-and-white checkers splashed across swimwear and separates as well as racing jumpsuits fashioned from tweed, while whimsical accessories complete the collection, from statement jewellery to minaudières that are as much conversation pieces as collector’s items – tennis racquet purse, anyone? Discover the full shoot below.
