Fashion mogul Karl Lagerfeld, the brain behind Chanel, is well-known for extravagance – it’s what makes him and Chanel attractive to the globe’s biggest spenders. So for yesterday’s Chanel cruise line show, Lagerfeld did what any purveyor of luxury would do: he rented out the entirety of the Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc, one of the world’s most famous and expensive hotels.
Styleite points out that while regular fashion shows are usually on a runway, “cruise collections” happen in the off season, so they can often take place at more interesting locales. In the past, Lagerfeld has put on shows everywhere from St. Tropez to a Santa Monica airport hangar, but the famous hotel in Cap D’Antibes on the French Riviera takes it to a new level.
