When it comes to runway shows, Chanel knows how to pull out all the stops. So it should hardly come as a surprise that today, for its Cruise 2019 show in Paris, the fashion house brought an actual cruise ship onto its runway.

The larger-than-life liner, named 'La Pausa' after Gabrielle Chanel's summer house on the French Riviera, served as the ultimate backdrop to the fashion house's nautical-inspired collection.

After models boarded the Chanel-branded ship alongside Karl Lagerfeld for the grand finale, the ship then opened up to guests, making for the ultimate photo op.

As for the collection itself, there were plenty of white and navy stripes, berets, and straw hats perfect for your next getaway on the French Riviera. There was also, of course, no shortage of Chanel's signature tweed in the form of skirt suits and dresses. Perhaps most striking, however, was the fact that nearly every look was worn with a pair of white tights—an item that's been passé in the fashion world for quite some time now.

This, of course, is hardly the first time Chanel went big with the set of its runway show. In the past, the fashion house has transformed its runway set into a space station, supermarket, airport, carousel, and more.
