Dior, Vuitton, Chanel: cruise collections preview

Posted on

Christian Dior 

Raf Simons has taken the Christian Dior experience to New York City with the show set to take place Wednesday evening in, gasp, Brooklyn. The brand is following a trend kicked off by Alexander Wang and will be crossing the bridge from Manhattan for a show at the Brooklyn Naval Yard. Last year’s Cruise show was held at Monaco’s Hôtel de Paris while previous seasons have seen the brand roll out the runway in Shanghai and New York City. 

Louis Vuitton 

The Parisian luxury brand will show its Resort collection on the Mediterranean with an event set to take place during the star-studded Cannes Film Festival, which runs May 14 to 25. Hosted by Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Prince’s Palace on May 17, this will be the second runway show for new Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesqiuère, and the first time the brand has shown resort on the catwalk. All eyes will be on the Frenchman to see if he can replicate his successful Fall-Winter 2014 showing. You’ll be able to watch the show via a livestream on the Vuitton website at 7 PM CET.


Chanel is an old hand when it comes to glamorous locations for its Cruise collections. Previous venues include Versailles, Singapore, Los Angeles and Saint Tropez on the French Riviera. On May 13 they’ll show off their Cruise 2015 line at a location in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. With sets and clothes that normally take inspiration from their settings, we can’t wait to see what Middle Eastern delights Karl Lagerfeld has dreamt up.
