Arguably more of a pain to get to than Brooklyn: Chanel's upcoming cruise show. For the May 13 extravaganza, the brand is commandeering an island in Dubai known simply as "The Island" — because just any old island wouldn't be worthy. WWD cryptically notes that the event will be "partly indoors, partly outdoors" and will allow guests to see a "forest of skyscrapers at sunset." No word yet if there will be a ferry or not.
