Planning your next vacation in a warm and cozy country? Cruise your way all along as Aviamost brings to you an overview of the stunning images of chic cruise collections for the 2019/20 season.
It’s undoubtedly hard to forge your own path when you’re following in the footsteps of iconic designers like Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, but with today’s Cruise show, Chanel’s new creative director Virginie Viard presented a first go, one that’s a little more relaxed—soft, even—with girlish miniskirt suits, button-up tops, bow-adorned dresses, and black and white ballet flats that will definitely land on everyone’s wish.
Inspired by travel, today’s show was staged in Paris’ Grand Palais, a location Chanel has shown in for years. Contrasting Lagerfeld’s Fall 2019 winter wonderland set, Cruise 2020 was a simple train station. Signs around the venue directed to Europe's most beloved vacation destinations Venice, Rome, the Riviera, and more. This season’s Chanel woman has a world to see and she needs looks to match.
The jacket, a staple in Chanel DNA, was reshaped into cargo and parka cuts. Multiple pockets to hold passports, cash, a phone, and other travel needs, perhaps? If I had to guess, these will surely attract a new audience. As will the Chanel print leggings and white Bermuda shorts.
All in all, it was a relatively simple showing from Viard, but only just the beginning.
Maria Grazia Chiuri has always had her heart set on establishing creative exchanges with African cultures. With this collection, she sought to dialogue with the real and imagined landscape of Morocco, at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, Europe and Africa, as a dream destination for artists, poets, writers and eternal adventurers.
Showing the 2020 Cruise collection in Marrakesh represents a way of being guided by the memory of the House and Christian Dior’s first successor, Yves Saint Laurent, a native of Oran who was fascinated by Morocco. This show also illustrates the concept of a meeting of ideas, a “common ground” like the one feminist philosopher Naomi Zack describes, in which, despite all differences, exchanges among women can materialize through reflection and action.
Drawing from a place reminiscent of his childhood, Creative Director Alessandro Michele chose the Capitoline Museums to unveil the new Gucci Cruise 2020 collection.
The Dia-Art Foundation in New York, the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey in London, Pitti Palace in Florence and Promenade Des Alyscamps in Arles: every year artistically and historically significant places turn into the stages of Gucci Cruise shows.
Offering a unique look inside centuries-old history of Ancient Rome through a rich antiquities collection, the Capitoline Museums will set the mood for the new women’s and men’s collection.
