CHANEL Cruise 2023/24 collection: my 7 favourite looks
You can dance on Monday and get busy with a project on Sunday. The Chanel Cruise 2023/24 collection unfolds the multiple facets of its colourful, joyful and elegant world – from the glamour of the 1920s and 30s to the rhythm of the 1970s and 80s. “The idea is to offer a breath of fresh air, a voyage, a light-hearted and happy fantasy” says Virginie Viard. Therefore, here they are my 7 favourite looks (yep, one for every day of the week).

Los Angeles and a legendary studio at nightfall. Together, fashion and cinema lead us into a waking dream, nourished by an energetic invitation to step into the spotlight and never leave the dance floor. “Between a tribute to the glamour of great film stars and evoking the world of fun to be had with aerobics, sports and roller skating, between the dream on one hand and what you want to wear on the other, it’s all a question of balance,” says Virginie Viard.
About the pieces – inspiration, colours, fabrics:
* Rhinestone-covered mini-shorts and jumpsuits, embroidered bustier and little tank tops, 1960s-inspired suits, bathrobes and casual pyjamas, 1930s-style shoes and their disco variations, crêpe de chine and terrycloth, swimsuits, wrap-around tops, legwarmers and evening dresses: it’s all about the collective imagination as the history and codes of CHANEL join the dance.
* A burst of vitality is transcribed in a multicoloured palette carefully balanced between the timeless House colours, pastel shades and new flamboyant tones. Beyond the emblematic white and black, there are nuances of pink.
* This scintillating energy at the heart of the collection is imbued in fabrics, embroideries and prints. It takes a lead role expressed through a range of motifs, from the most geometric to the most figurative: gold squares, black and gold chevrons, disco balls, milkshakes and roller skates in a spirit favoured by Karl Lagerfeld, splendid coconut palms and sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. It also radiates through various accessories where rhinestones, ombré shading and metallic leathers take pride of place.
