Under Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel has made a habit of taking its Cruise collections on the road to fabulous destinations, from Cuba to Seoul, and drawing inspiration from the local culture and style. That he did in Chanel Resort 2018 with a collection called 'La Modernité de l'Antiquité' that raised ancient Greece from the past.
Painted pottery was one of the most popular ways ancient Greeks depicted the human body in two dimensions. Lagerfeld reworked the motifs in column dresses with rows and rows of illustrations evoking the Greek originals.


The Inspiration:
In Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment, a bust of Venus sat on the mantle. That served as Lagerfeld’s jumping-off point this season, with the designer saying, “The criteria of beauty in ancient, then classical, Greece still hold true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women. Or more beautiful columns. The entire Renaissance, in fact, was based on antiquity. It is really about the youth of the world in all its power and unpredictability.“
