The Chanel haute couture show left a mark on the Parisian week and in the hearts of fashion addicted.
Impossible not to admire the looks of the Chanel Haute Couture fall / winter 2021-2022 fashion show , which was held on the occasion of the last Paris fashion week, inside the Musée Galliera , an enchanting location that currently also hosts an exhibition dedicated to Coco, “Gabrielle Chanel, Manifeste de mode” which retraces the first steps and successes of the designer. A must if you fly to Paris this summer.
An enchanting museum that was not chosen by chance by the creative director Virginie Viard , who created a connection between museum, fashion and muses: “Muse, museum, fashion. We often sing about museums, but not enough about muses. Perhaps because we rarely meet them. But when you are so lucky… ” , this is the wording on the show program. And the muses are the key word of this high fashion collection that travels through the centuries.
Chanel: in the Musée Galliera, sophisticated looks from yesterday and today
The Musée Galliera is among the five major museums on the planet, a tribute to the Duchess Galliera, a woman of the world and a lover of art. Fashion has always been the protagonist in this museum which boasts 70,000 pieces and where we can find clothes that have made history, such as those of the Empress Josephine or Marie Antoinette, or those that have made the history of cinema worn by Audrey Hepburn, and of course iconic pieces from Dior, Sain Laurent and Chanel collections.
The Chanel winter Haute Couture fashion show has made this historical-artistic richness its own, evoking it through clothes that travel between time and space, mixing shapes, cuts and dresses of yesterday to cross and mix with contemporary collections, naturally enhancing the details iconic of Chanel style. Modern princess dresses, with long skirts to lift as we have seen the protagonists of our favorite costume films do so many times, in a pre-fashion show signed by Sofia Coppola, of which we remember her unforgettable Marie Antoinette.
Tweeds, skirts and chignons: the inspo looks to steal from Chanel Haute Couture
The undisputed star of the show was tweed , gray and in many shades, brilliant and declined in jeweled jackets , like the model with bracelet sleeves, finished with a jeweled braid. The tweed in this case is a real painting of colored camellias on a midnight blue base, combined with a black organza and lace skirt tied with a satin bow.
We already imagine that among the looks for next winter the midi skirts , long for events or cocktail parties, tops, coats and tweed jackets will be an undisputed trend, to be framed for those with long hair in buns gathered in satin bows that from the court Versailles are once again an accessory for sophisticated and contemporary hair looks.
