The wind was blowing in Paris last night. Transforming the Grand Palais into another world yet again, Karl Lagerfeld anchored a huge cruise ship for the 2019 Cruise show. The ship's name "La Pausa," is taken from Gabrielle Chanel's (a.k.a. Coco Chanel) villa in South of France. For the nautical-themed collection, Lagerfeld took inspiraition from the designs he made for the house in the 1980s — plenty of marine trousers paired with mini jackets.
What was surprising though, was the creative director's decision to take a bow alongside his fashion studio director Virgine Viard. The retirement rumors were previously shut down, but we can't help but wonder if Viard could be a potential successor.
