Karl Lagerfeld, who often picks exotic locations like Versailles and Dallas, Texas to present his between-season collections, will show Chanel Cruise 2013/2014 in Singapore on May 9.

Not to be outdone, Raf Simons will show his resort collection for Dior on May 19 in Monaco. It will be the first resort collection he has shown for the house.

Lagerfeld's between-season collections often tie into their locale (actually, we wonder which comes first: the location or the theme?). So what can we expect from Singapore? Perhaps the island country's tropical rainforest climate will play in? April and May are Singapore's hottest months, according to Wikipedia. Also, Singapore is known for a lot of importing and exporting of goods and is the world's fourth-leading financial center. It also has a burgeoning fashion and retail scene--Chanel has three stores there. So, there's a lot of material for Lagerfeld to explore. We can't wait.
