Following the regal-meets-rock Chanel Cruise collection at the Château de Versailles near Paris on Monday, Karl Lagerfeld already has plans for next year in mind, citing a ballroom in Deauville as a possible setting.
The designer presented ornate Marie Antoinette-inspired gowns tinted with rock influences for his 2013 resort line, as models took to the runway in candy-colored wigs and flatform shoes. Watch the presentation at http://youtu.be/fkFdCfahDdg.
But the creator already has next year in mind, telling WWD that the glamorous seaside resort of Deauville would be an appropriate setting, particularly as 2013 marks the centenary of Chanel's shop there.
"My idea is to hire a train, have dinner on the train, do the show in a ballroom and go back at night," he said.
