Originally presented in Dubai, the collection was shot by Uncle Karl Lagerfeld.  Joan is photographed wearing patterned looks from the cruise collection, which is said to be inspired by orient romanticism. The campaign also features Hudson Kroenig, (Karl's godson) and the son of model, Brad Kroenig.
