Since 2000, CHANEL’s collections have been travelling around the world – from Paris to New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Venice, Saint Tropez, Cap d’Antibes, Versailles and Singapore – and the French House will unveil its next Cruise collection in Dubai. A futuristic megalopolis of the 21st century, the ever-developing Emirate of Dubai is a crossroads of civilisations between Europe and Asia. This dynamic and multicultural city that inspires travel and evokes the spirit of Cruise is also the perfect setting for the show that will be held on May 13th 2014 in the presence of Karl Lagerfeld.
In December 1953, Coco Chanel began her incredible return to center stage. The designer reopens her Haute Couture house after fifteen years of absence. The collection is welcomed by the French press with an icy silence. Only the American media supports the looks that define the rebirth of Chanel’s style.
“The Return” retraces this determining period, that shaped the legend of the designer of rue Cambon forever. “The Return,” imagined, written, and directed by Karl Lagerfeld, features Geraldine Chaplin in the role of Gabrielle Chanel, Rupert Everett, Anna Mouglalis, Lady Amanda Harlech, Arielle Dombasle, Kati Nescher, Vincent Darré and Sam McKnight.
