CHANEL / DUBAI
Since 2000, Chanel’s collections have been traveling around the world – from Paris to New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Venice, Saint Tropez, Cap d’Antibes, Versailles, and Singapore. This year the brand will unveil its ‘Cruise’ collection on May 13 in Dubai.
The collection is usually launched in between the two main seasonal collections for spring-summer and fall-winter. Chanel also presented The Little Black Jacket, a photo exhibition curated by Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, the former Vogue Paris editor, last year in Dubai. Singer Rita Ora, who features in the exhibition, attended the event at Downtown Dubai in April. Information on location for the cruise show are not available but will be shared once released. Magnifique!
Founded by Gaby Aghion, Chloé introduced luxury prêt-à-porter to the masses 57 years ago and was the springboard for designers Karl Lagerfeld in 1966, Stella McCartney in 1997 and Phoebe Philo in 2001. Now it’s launching something new - Chloé the book, launch at Chloé boutiques Melrose Place in LA this week. 8448 Melrose Place, Los Angeles.
JOHN GALLIANO FOR CHRISTIAN DIOR
With so much activity around Sofitel in Asia at the moment (new openings will bring Sofitel’s Asian portfolio to 42 this year), and Karl Lagerfeld’s involvement in the new Sofitel So Singapore, we thought it timely to introduce some Asian influence into Tumblr this week. Although from a past collection, we adore this image of model Ming Xi, shot by Nick Knight, in a couture creations by John Galliano for Christian Dior.
