Introducing the Chanel Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection. After presenting the previous Cruise Collections in Dubai, Seoul and Havana, Karl Lagerfeld has returned to Paris to hold the brand’s latest collection. The Cruise 2018 features an Ancient Greece theme, with a collection entitled “La Modernité de l’Antiquité” or “The Modernity of Antiquity”. The Grand Palais has been transformed into a replica of the Parthenon and Temple of Poseidon. Karl Lagerfeld has taken his inspiration from a bust of Venus in Coco Chanel’s apartment, creating a beautiful ancient collection. Models were seen in draped gowns, tweed dresses and gladiator sandals with Greek column heels. The handbags includes a variety of drawstring bags in different sizes and colors. The Gabrielle Bag returns this season in new colors and materials. Clutch bags in different patterns were introduced in the runway, as well as a new minaudiere which features an owl embellishment.
