Though Chanel unveiled its latest Cruise collection in Paris, the elaborate set replicated Ancient Greece with hulking, crumbling columns and a rocky runway trimmed with rosemary and sage sprigs, as well as olive trees. The looks were equally as Aegean in spirit: gladiator-worthy column-heeled sandals, Chanel's signature boucle in soft silhouettes, and a palette rife with pastel hues and crisp whites. The maison's vacation-ready Cruise looks also nod to Coco Chanel's costume designs for Jean Cocteau's 1992 production of Antigone, an Ancient Greek tragedy. "It's a modern vision of antiquity."
