It was a larger-than-life CHANEL Cruise 2018/19 collection showcase with plenty of celebrities in attendance.
The Grand Palais transformed into a cruise ship terminal, with the La Pausa liner docked for the duration of a 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.
The atmosphere was relaxed and happy: with House ambassadors such as Margot Robbie, Kristen Stewart and Lily-Rose Depp in attendance. Along with Gaspard Ulliel, Caroline de Maigret, Clotilde Hesme and Alma Jodorowsky, the Chinese actor and singer William Chan, the Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin, the Japanese actress Nana Komatsu and the English director Steve McQueen.
