Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 haute Couture
I guess we all are ready for some Spring and Summer fashion. It is something we can look forward too. This collection from Chanel’s creative director Virginie Viard was inspired on weddings. Nothing more romantic than a wedding gown, but this one is a bit different, not the usual, traditional, but more bohemian style, with of course the Chanel twist in it.
Not all feminin but also old fashioned boys’ clothes—tweedy Oxford bags, and waistcoats for instance, a reminder of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s appropriations of menswear in her designs, and her literal borrowing from the wardrobes of her lovers. (source Vogue)
To set the scene, the Grand Palais has been transformed this season to evoke the charm of a country wedding in the South of France (the sunshine bright enough for the guests to wear Jacqueline Onassis–scale sunglasses), with rustic arches wrapped in flowers, wooden chairs for the socially distanced guests, and coronets of silk as well as real flowers in the hair—the first time, as far as Viard knows, that Lemarié, fabled for their exquisite artificial flowers, have also worked with the real McCoy.(source Vogue)
As always a spectacle and beautifully presented collection by Virginie Viard.
You will see immediately Chanel's authentic signature throughout the designs.
I hope you are now all in the mood for Spring and Summer to come, we cannot wait.
