New sights, new sounds, new experiences in a new city – nothing quite beats the anticipation of a journey. As for the ultimate travel companion? The Chanel Cruise 2019/20 collection, complete with its carefree separates and polished charm, of course. But let’s backtrack.
Imagine buying a one-way train ticket when you value the journey more than the destination. Imagine the leisurely stretch of time that passes as the countryside blurs past your window. Imagine the feeling of being suspended in that moment. Like Jordan Rand, the gorgeous model in Savoir Flair’s exclusive editorial shoot for Chanel Cruise 2019/20, you’ll feel nothing short of exhilaration by your choice to unapologetically embrace the unknown. Shot at the exquisite St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London, our editorial shoot imagines the moments before boarding the train and embarking on a voyage.
With train travel built into the ethos of the Chanel Cruise 2019/20 collection, Creative Director Virginie Viard also imagined her young heroine on an adventure. The clothes and accessories from the collection bring modernity to a timeless travel wardrobe, with comfortable ease of movement married to romantic flourishes of floral appliqués, tweedy textures, and elegant but practical footwear. It’s time to get bitten by the travel bug, if you dare.
