Cruise collections are becoming more and more popular each year. Originally designed for those who were wealthy and lucky enough to take trips on cruises each winter, these collections were traditionially items designed to literally wear on a cruise. Of course this notion has evolved over the years, with many brands seeing it as an opportunity to present trans-seasonal collections.


This year, Karl Lagerfeld went back to the heritage of the cruise collection with his own custom-built cruise ship in Paris’ Grand Palais. With a collection of looks that would be quite at home onboard a 1950’s cruise liner he redefined the meaning of cruise and took us back to its roots. With more and more fashion houses opting to create cruise collections, they are developing trends in their own right. Here were highlight the key looks from this transitional season that will take you through to early 2019.
