Karl Lagerfeld’s latest collection read both as a sentimental journey around the ’80s when he began designing for Chanel, and of the signatures—quilting, tweed, sailor pants, pearls, Scottish cashmeres, camellias—that Gabrielle Chanel brought to fashion in the first place.

The vast imitation ship at the centre of the event was named La Pausa, after Chanel’s summer house in the South of France, while a press release steered attention toward the fact that Coco Chanel was essentially the first designer to make vacation clothes for wealthy clients, first in the resort of Deauville in 1919, and how she later built on that success to introduce the first croisiere collections at her house in the Rue Cambon in Paris in the late 1920s.
