Not one to underwhelm and always one to surprise, Karl Lagerfeld transported guests back to ancient Greek with the Chanel Cruise 2017-2018 collection. Following the theme of “The Modernity of Antiquity”, the collection reimagined traditional Grecian codes of classicism into modern sophistication.

“I’m expressing through fashion a fascination I’ve had since childhood. The first book I read was Homer,” explains Karl Lagerfeld of his inspiration. “The criteria of beauty in ancient, then classical, Greece still hold true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women.”
