    PRELUDE

    The first silhouettes from the Cruise 2017/18 collection, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.

    "The criteria of beauty in ancient, then classical, Greece still hold true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women. Or more beautiful columns. The entire Renaissance, in fact, was based on Antiquity. It is really about the youth of the world in all its power and unpredictability." Karl Lagerfeld

    "A DRESS COMES UNDER SCULPTURE, <BR />NOT DRAWING" GABRIELLE CHANEL

    "A DRESS COMES UNDER SCULPTURE,
    NOT DRAWING" GABRIELLE CHANEL

    Gabrielle Chanel's fascination for Greek Antiquity had a profound influence on how she saw creation. In the center of her apartment stood a headless Venus dating from the first century BC. The timeless, strikingly modern figure implicitly reveals Gabrielle Chanel's technique, painstakingly chiselling, as it were, her garments with her fingers, her pins, the tools of her trade. She referred to the sculptor Praxiteles to explain her art and her vision of fashion, with cuts influenced by architecture, a repertoire of shapes, and fabric that draped naturally over the body.
