Luxury cruise line Cunard has revealed new details of their partnership with famed fashion brand, Badgley Mischka, along with news of their Alaska itineraries to come in 2020.
Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka will be designing a capsule collection exclusively for Cunard. Badgley Mischka is slated to headline Cunard’s 2020 event: Transatlantic Fashion Crossing. The event, to be hosted on flagship liner Queen Mary 2, will depart Southampton, England on 24 May 2020. The capsule collection consists of formal wear and casual resort wear and will be available to purchase onboard during the voyage. Badgley Mischka will also be debuting their 2021 resort collection in a runway show onboard – the first time a fashion collection has been launched on a Cunard ship.
The annual Transatlantic Fashion Crossing is just one of many special event cruises from Cunard that bring life to the worlds of fashion, astronomy, genealogy, dance and much more for guests on board.
Cunard also announced their youngest ship Queen Elizabeth will visit Glacier Bay as part of the 2020 program in Alaska. In May 2019, Cunard’s modern fleet will set sail in Alaska for the first time. As a result of high demand, the line will spend a full season in the region next year, offering round-trip voyages out of Vancouver from June through to September 2020.
“Cunard’s focus continues to be on increasing North American sourcing on our journey to doubling business from this part of the world. We will be offering more deployment in 2020 for North America and homeporting in Vancouver and New York,” said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America.
On the East Coast, Queen Mary 2 will spend more time in New England and Canada with departures out of New York, making calls in Boston, Québec City, Newport and more. On the West Coast, Queen Elizabeth will offer departures out of Vancouver and sail down to San Francisco and Los Angeles, offering a rare overnight on July Fourth.
