The Temple of Poseidon, an iconic and historic Athens landmark, set the backdrop for Chanel's Cruise '18 show inside the Paris' Grand Palais — the same space that hosted the Chanel galactic-inspired Fall/Winter '17 runway show. There, Karl Lagerfeld unfolded a collection, aptly titled The Modernity of Antiquity, which consisted of signature tweed tunics, relaxed silhouettes and lightweight fabrics.

Complemented by strappy gladiator sandals, haute accessories and gold sequins, the Cruise '18 collection is the ultimate Greek goddess must-have. Discover the first looks of the collection now...
