International luxury fashion brand Chanel revealed a spectacular tribute to Ancient Greece to a celebrity audience in Paris on Wednesday.

Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director of Chanel commented that the Chanel Cruise 2018 show was inspired by Ancient Greece. Before the show he said, “The criteria of beauty in ancient, then classical, Greece still holds true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women. Or more beautiful columns.”

"I see Greece as the origin of beauty and culture." - Karl Lagerfeld, Designer for Chanel

Chanel transformed The Grand Palais into a stylish runway that recreated ruins from the Parthenon in Athens and the Temple of Poseidon on Cape Sounion. Pebbles, marble stones and sand decorated the platform for Greek Goddess inspired models to walk on and a real olive tree in the background sealed the finishing touch.
