CHANEL Cruise 2021/22: A journey of elegance
Immerse in the 60s charm.

The designs in the CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 collection are refined to embody the simplicity and elegance of the literary and cinematic works of Jean Cocteau, a close friend of Gabrielle Chanel and the inspiration for Virginie Viard. A collection full of blacks and whites, yet still feels extremely strong and modern against the spacious chambers of Carrières de Lumières.

The look is casual yet elegant with a hint of rebellion. There’s something so liberating about the rough hemlines, the lip jewelry or the big chunky The free spirit is If you look closely at the details of each design, you will feel the amazing subtlety bracelets and necklaces. CHANEL has always been so good at its contrasts. That is surely part of the house’s irresistible charm.
