Penélope Cruz, spectacular in the Chanel Dubai parade

Ambassadors and close friends of the house gathered in the Dubai Creek harbour district to celebrate the Cruise show.

Last night Dubai was a party, but not just any party. Chanel’s Cruise 2021/22 show was presented in the Dubai Creek harbour district. Ambassadors and close friends of the house gathered to celebrate a unique parade. The show’s party featured a performance by John Legend and Faouzia, plus DJ sets by house ambassador Soo Joo Park, French DJs Kungs and Wladimir Schall.

Penelope Cruz, who lately hasn’t missed any of the firm’s events since she became an ambassador for the French house, also attended. And she surprised us with a classic tweed suit, jacket and skirt, one of the house’s emblems. With this, she was wearing a lock from the spring-summer 2022 collection of the ready-to-wear line. All accessories were also brand designed, including jewellery. Penelope wore 18k yellow gold diamond hoop earrings, the Coco Crush model, and the Soleil ring in white and yellow gold and diamonds.

The same parade of the cruise collection was attended by one of the firm’s muses, Caroline de Maigret, who was also dressed in Chanel, for whom time does not pass. But, unlike Pe, she chose a look with a masculine touch with a perfect deconstructed white with black lapels and details, plus a satin top and pants that she wore with black stilettos.

Another attendee at the party held in Dubai was John Legend, the singer and husband of Chrissy Teigen, who came along and performed after the live show.

The singer, who also chose a look based on the black and white binomial, opted for a disruptive accessory, a signature pearl necklace—demonstrating that accessories are increasingly genderless and travel through the fashion universe without gender. For the performance before all the guests, he changed his look and opted for one of his favourite classics, a tuxedo (or tuxedo).

Other influencers from the Arab countries starred in some of the most incredible moments of the night.

The tweed jacket was, without a doubt, one of the queens of this Arabian night. This garment is one of the most recognizable elements of the firm. Since its origins, this has been one of the emblematic pieces. “I care a lot about women, and I wanted to dress them in clothes that made them feel comfortable, but emphasized femininity,” said Coco Chanel. Penélope Cruz and the attendees at this gala are aware of the meaning of this garment, and, as you may have already seen, it has been part of the celebrity wardrobe as one of her favourites for decades.

The key to success lies in the characteristics of the fabric used, tweed. Its softness, comfort and elegance allow it to be worn 24/7. We have seen the Spanish actress with him at events like this or combine one of the jackets with jeans. In the second decade of the 20th century, Gabrielle Chanel chose this fabric, which until now had only been used in men’s tailoring until now. It was a revolution that loosened the materials that, until now, had encircled the woman’s figure and limited her movements. Pe is one of the current representatives of this revolution that Coco started.
