CHANEL Cruise Collections hits Miami Beach

May '08
CHANEL Cruise Collections have sailed on a yacht on the River Seine, arrived in Grand Central Terminal in NYC, landed by private jet to a hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, and trailed through landmarks of Paris on Parisian buses.

The Collection, inspired by the culture of travel, is on the move again this year, to the legendary Raleigh Hotel in Miami Beach on May 15, 2008.

Since Karl Lagerfeld's arrival at CHANEL in 1983, this collection has taken increasingly spectacular form on the catwalks.

Originally, cruise wear was designed for voyagers sailing through oceans in the heart of winter, headed for sunny climates.

As seasons have passed, the CHANEL Cruise Collection has become a fashion moment all its own, offering a chic, relaxed wardrobe, available in boutiques all over the world starting in the month of November.

"The concept of the Cruise Collection is based on traveling, and Miami is the ideal destination: a city that moves and has energy, with its small districts and its animated streets," comments Karl Lagerfeld.

EXPECTED ATTENDEES: Diane Kruger, Zoe Kravitz, Anna Kournikova, Anna Mouglalis and more!

B-ROLL: Red Carpet arrivals and soundbites, event footage and party b-roll. Footage from a special performance by US 2008 Olympic Synchronized Swimming team that will compete in Beijing this summer (embargoed until Friday 5/16).
