Karl Lagerfeld Cruises on the Beach

He’s had icebergs imported from the Arctic, staged a show in airport hangar, re-imagined masquerades on the sand—what’s left for Karl Lagerfeld to do? Apparently, go back to the beginning. For his next Chanel cruise collection on May 11, the Kaiser is heading to Saint-Tropez, the luxury hotspot in the South of France that gave birth to the very idea of resort. Picture kaftans, botox, pool boys and suntans as far as the eye can see, not to mention boutiques right on the sand, in case you want to pick up a camellia-encrusted something or other in between back rubs. Inspired by this languorous opulence, Karl’s latest effort is drawing the likes of actresses Olivia Magnani, Rinko Kikuchi and Anna Mouglali. Cannes, what’s that?
