This little red dot is certainly making more heads turn on the catwalk of the fashion world than ever before. Karl Lagerfeld has deigned to name our sunny island as the perfect spot in the whole of Asia to launch Chanel’s 2013/14 Cruise collection.
Unveiled in Asia for the first time to the rest of the world, Singapore has been given the ultimate honour of being the host for what is sure to be a glittery, star-studded event, filled with the international press corp and celebrities galore.
It all begins on the evening of 8 May, when a private screening of Karl Lagerfeld’s new film ‘Once Upon a Time…‘ (shown above) will be held at the grand dame Raffles Hotel as a precursor to the main event. The following day, the Loewen Cluster on stylish enclave Dempsey Hill will see the man in question himself – and the Cruise collection, of course – in all their glamourous glory.
Venice, Saint-Tropez, Cap d’Antibes and Versailles (all previous exotic Chanel Cruise show locales), and now Singapore. If this isn’t something to be really excited about, I don’t know what is. And don’t forget to stalk me on Instagram and Twitter come 8 and 9 May where I promise loads of exciting updates and snapshots.
