Chanel Does Dubai

Resort Fashion Week has started and I spent part of this evening browsing the half dozen or so shows that have happened so far. While I didn't really see any looks worth commenting on, I did find it really interesting that Karl Lagerfeld chose to hold the Chanel show in Dubai this year. Anything outside of the usual New York/London/Paris/Milan circuit tends to catch my attention, but this is a major designer going majorly out of the box in terms of location.

Chanel is rarely my thing, although I do sort of like that first dress.

I'm wondering if we're about to see a trend of designers holding their shows in unusual locations. It was a big thing when Alexander Wang held his Fall 2014 show in Brooklyn, but now Christian Dior has done the same thing for Resort season. 

One last thing: I *need* to know how Karl made it out across this sand without getting even a spot on his white shoes and pants. What is this sorcery?
