Chanel To Present Cruise Collection In Miami This Fall
FLORIDA, USA — Chanel S.A., a French privately held company owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gérard Wertheimer, grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer, announced that it will showcase its 2023 cruise (resort) collection (again) in Miami this fall.
The French fashion house’s upcoming show will take place on Thursday, Nov. 3. The cruise collection lands in stores in early November and is a key pillar of the brand.
The collection, first unveiled on the beach and pontoon of the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel on May 5, featured designs inspired by the French Riviera city in Monaco: auto racing, tennis matches, boat trips, sea swimming, the casino and the Monte Carlo ballets.
Chanel returns to the Magic City for the first time in 14 years, when the late Karl Lagerfield presented his Cruise 2009 collection at the Raleigh Hotel on Miami Beach. Last December, Chanel opened a 7,600-square-foot boutique in Miami’s Design District, designed by architect and longtime Chanel collaborator Peter Marino. Located at 155 NE 41st Street, the boutique was designed as a pure, cool, cube outside and a warm light-filled oasis inside.
It’s no surprise that Chanel has an affinity for hosting runway shows in far-flung destinations — its next Métiers d’Art collection will debut in Dakar, Senegal, in December.
