Chanel Resort 2015: When Karl Lagerfeld decided to unveil Chanel’s cruise 2015 collection in Dubai, home to the world’s tallest skyscraper, “it couldn’t be some basic show in a hotel,” as the designer put it — an understatement of Burj Khalifa proportions.

“With the highest building, I thought there was a reason to show the highest fashion, ha-ha-ha-ha,” Lagerfeld said during a fitting on Monday as assistants nestled crescent moon brooches into bouffant hairdos and dangled minaudières resembling giant pearls from models’ wrists. “You know, before Japan took over for pearls, this place was famous for them, so Chanel is very at home here,” he noted, as accessories maven Laetitia Crahay darted in and out adding knotted strands to some models’ throats.

“A romantic idea, without any folkloric touch, of an Orient of my imagination of the 21st century,” was how Lagerfeld described a collection built on gauzy fabrics and flowing, enveloping silhouettes — lit up by intricate metallic embroideries and dense patterns.
