Chanel To Show Next Couture Collection In Dubai

11 February 2014 by


Karl Lagerfeld is taking his Chanel Cruise collection on tour once more and WWD reports that this year the show will take place in Dubai. Previously Lagerfeld has presented the brand's Cruise line in a whole host of exotic locations, including St. Tropez, Venice and Singapore, but this could be the hottest event yet, with temperatures soaring to a whopping 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the Dubai desert.

The Chanel Couture 2014 show will take place on 13 May, but the exact Dubai location is as yet unnamed. Karl is no stranger to travelling with his designs, as last year he hosted his Metiers d’Art presentation collection in Dallas, Texas. He was joined by the loveliest of Chanel's lovelies, from Poppy Delevingne to Alexa Chung who got into the frontier theme with cowgirl hats and denim shirts.

We imaging the Fash Pack will be flocking to Dubai come May, but what will Lagerfeld have in store? Chanel says of Dubai: "This dynamic and multicultural city that inspires travel and evokes the spirit of Cruise is also the perfect setting for the show that will be held on May 13th 2014 in the presence of Karl Lagerfeld." As usual we're sure the set will be elaborate and pay homage to the surroundings. Will it take place on top of a Dubai skyscraper, in the middle of a Dubai mall or will the attendees need to journey by camel into the middle of the Dubai desert? We'll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for clues until the big day!
