The Chanel Resort 2015 collection was recently shown on location in Dubai and actress Tilda Swinton was at the event to see the new line make its catwalk debut. As a muse of Chanel's head designer Karl Lagerfeld, Tilda reveals that the designer often creates his own "fantasy" through his designs. Tilda commented on the special Dubai themed pieces, saying the designer seemingly took his inspiration from 70s style too:  ''I've only been in Dubai 24 hours, so I'm not exactly an expert. But for me it was all my fantasies about 70s Dubai. A bit Marisa Berenson and 101 Arabian nights. It was a child's eye view - but Karl's always grazing in a fantasy world ... I'm now stuck in the sand.'' The designer was coy on whether or not the jewels used in the show were real or fake, explaining his idea: ''I like the idea that you have no way of knowing whether the diamonds and pearls are real or not. That's very Coco, no?"

Opening up on why he selected the city of Dubai to be where the collection debuted, he said that he was inspired by the great modern vibe of the city: ''Dubai's a city that rose out of the sea and desert in less than 30 years. It's like Atlantis - and now it has the tallest building on the planet (the Burj Khalifa). Once that honour went to the Eiffel Tower. Then the Empire State building. Now it's here. That shows you how the world is changing. This is such a modern city I wanted to avoid anything folklorique. I couldn't have done a collection in Dubai that wasn't modern.''
