Taking the Plunge: Plumeria Swimwear 2015

Creative Director and Designer of Plumeria Swimwear, Gabrielle Cimon comments on what inspires her spectacular swimsuit designs: "For me, swimwear is a natural expression of summer; hot sunny days, long sultry nights. When you wear any of my creations, I want you to look sexy, feel comfortable and embrace the sunshine. Wherever I am, I am at my best near the beach."

Chanel Cruise 2016 Seoul

Monday night Karl Lagerfeld showed his Chanel Cruise 2016 Show in Seoul in the uber futuristic Dongdaemun Design Plaza, a curvaceous spaceship-like structure designed by Zaha Hadid and South Korean-based Samoo Architects.

Chanel staged the show on a modernist, minimalist set – a colorful expanse of polka dot-shaped stools and light fixtures that transformed the space into a giant Twister mat.

It’s a cosmopolitan idea of the local fashion,” Lagerfeld said. The voluminous shapes and bold color combinations of hanboks, the South Korean equivalent of the kimono, inspired the designer. He delivered his own high-fashion versions of these full, high-waisted dresses in patchwork silk — including one in a smattering of pastel hues and another version in soft pink that closed the show. “This doesn’t exist in any other country in the eastern part of the world — only in Korea,” Lagerfeld said of the patchwork technique.
 

In a nod to the historical hairdos featured in South Korean period dramas, there were bold headpieces made from thick braids of black hair, some in crown formations and others in buns similar to mouse ears.
 

“I don’t do folklore or direct interpretation. It’s an idea of what I think it could be – or should be.”

The styles in tweed, rendered in punchy weaves of bright hues, were also standouts. “It’s an updated Korean version of the Chanel jacket,” Lagerfeld noted.
 

Some A-listers for the front row including Kristen Stewart, Gisele Bündchen, Tilda Swinton, Isabelle Huppert, Gaspard Ulliel, Lo-Fang and Rinko Kikuchi. Tapping into the K-pop talent pool, the fashion house enlisted the likes of rapper G-Dragon, South Korean-American singer Krystal, and singer, songwriter and dancer Taeyang to attend the show along with actresses Shin-Hye Park and Ah-Sung Go.

“The styling was really Korean. They mixed a lot of elements of traditional Korean style with Chanel’s own identity…[and] I was so proud to see this as a Korean,” G-Dragon said.
