Classic accessories and silhouettes reimagined.
Every year, Chanel delivers a show-stopping runway debut of their latest collection, and this year at Paris Fashion Week is no different. For the Chanel Fall-Winter 2021/2011 Ready-to-Wear show, the brand chose a more intimate setting to introduce the latest designs. The show was filmed in a popular Parisian location- Castel- with the opening scene showcasing the models strutting down walkways, as the stunning streets of Paris follow them close behind.
The collection itself is absolutely breathtaking. Infused with “ski spirit,” the outerwear pieces within the collection are very après ski; such as fur-lined coats layered overtop of the brand’s iconic pearls and jewels. The brand’s artistic director, Virginie Viard, was able to elegantly intertwine classic tweed and chiffon fabric throughout the collection, which is said to have been inspired by the late Stella Tennant- a true Chanel icon.
Adding in a touch of vintage flair, pieces in the collection are reimagined in modern-day colour palettes and patterns to bring the brand’s vision to life. It is truly inspiring to see Chanel experiment with bold looks by mixing fabrics and colour to create iconic pieces for the modern woman. The brand’s iconic interlocking double-C logo is also ever-present in the accessories featured throughout the show.
Some of our favourites from the collection include multi-layer looks that highlight some of Chanel’s most desirable pieces. For instance, 90’s-inspired cropped tweed blazers in bold colours give the collection a more sensual feel, while houndstooth printed sets are reworked for a more oversized fit to give the collection more shape and dimension. One of our favourites though involves branded quilted overalls that are very ski chic.
As demonstrated by the Fall/Winter 2021/2022 show, Chanel is always iconic.
