The fashion industry continues to gives us great fashion moment with all of our favorite luxury brand. After the recent Louis Vuitton and Dior fashion shows, another iconic French luxury house held its own show. On January 26, Chanel had a private show for its haute couture spring 2021 collection that was rebroadcast worldwide afterwards.
This year’s Spring couture collection is created again by the talented Virginie Viard, who has been working for Chanel since 1987. First in embroidery and then since 2019, she has been the artistic director for Chanel. Her first solo collection was Chanel’s Resort/Cruise 2020 collection.
This new Spring 2021 collection was showcased at the Grand Palais in Paris. Virginie made it feel very intimate for the lucky ones invited to this private show. Obviously more people would have come but because of the pandemic, the locals were privileged this time and especially the Chanel ambassadors.
The ones present were Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp, and Alma Jodorowsky who were of course all 6 feet apart from each other. The venue was exceptional, with lots of flowers for elegance.
Regarding the pieces of the collection and their theme, Virginie said: “Like a family celebration, a wedding“. The idea came because of the pandemic, when she knew she had to reinvent again fashion shows. Most of the models wore beautiful gowns with handcrafted lace details, feathers and also embroidery.
The colors here are very pastel, very fresh, such as light pinks added to darker colors to make a beautiful contrast. There are classic Chanel pieces, like the vests and skirts but also some dazzling gowns, very sophisticated dresses and more male pieces that can be worn at a wedding for example or a chic Parisian party.
