What's scarier than snakes on a plane? Cruisewear on a plane, naturally. Karl Lagerfeld showed Chanel Cruise 2008 at the Santa Monica airport Friday evening, and frankly, we felt the whole thing never — pardon the pun — took off. Though the evening-looks were strong at times, the foho pieces that dominated the daywear collection read a little Wal-Mart to us. If you want to look like a cheap hippie, you're not going to be buying Chanel, are you? Karl does best when playing out rich-girl-in-society-lady's-hand-me-downs, not spoiled-rich-girl-hits-Salvation-Army.
