EASTERN PROMISE
Dubai: For Cruise, Karl Lagerfeld presented a collection for Chanel that was his “idea of of a romantic, modern Orient, a new One Thousand and One Nights.” Indeed it was! Extravagant in every sense, from the precious, costume jewelery, the materials and the embellishements to the silhouettes. This was a romantic collection of gauzy fabrics, metallic embroideries, eastern patterns and flowing, layered silhouettes of tunics over ubiquitous harem pants. – Lizzy Bowring
