It was on a larger-than-life voyage that Karl Lagerfeld invited his guests to witness Chanel‘s latest cruise collection. Beneath the nave of the Grand Palais transformed into a cruise ship terminal, the La Pausa liner docked for the duration of the epic runway show.

Majestic with its main bridge and two upper decks, it awaited its passengers to board before sounding its horn. Lifting the anchor and sailing away to some Mediterranean port. “My earliest memory isn’t of a boat, but of the sound of a boat”, confided the designer.

The atmosphere was relaxed and happy. Children adorned party shoes or strappy sneakers on their feet, and the travellers were already sporting their big round sunglasses, white tights and berets in tweed, cotton or sequins. Ready to travel comfortably and in style – just as Gabrielle Chanel did.

Silhouettes were a taste of holidays to come: short and long. Revealing skin and a hint of waist, swathed in bright whites, sun-gorged pastel hues, and dazzling pinks and blues.

Prints of boats or sharks’ teeth, wave and porthole motifs, and aqua sequinned embroideries scintillating like the reflection of the sun on water. Tweeds and cotton poplins, silk chiffons, crêpes de Chine and georgette, fishnet and crochets, denim and leather, PVC ennobled with feathers and braids… All defining a welcome lightness, floaty yet warming beneath the balmy breezes.

Vicky began her career writing fashion, lifestyle and music related articles for a diverse range of print and digital media outlets. Shortly thereafter – upon discovering that a vast majority of the fashion industry were being out-shadowed by the commercial conglomerates of the world – Vicky (who equally grew tired of having no creative freedom herself) set out to create her own digital publishing platform that focused on promoting the incredible talents of all creatives within the fashion industry. Which is how The Fashion Catalyst began in 2009.
