It’s CULTED with your 60-second FASHION BLAST.
Chanel debuted its latest haute couture collection digitally for the first time ever yesterday. The collection was unveiled via a 30 image lookbook, as well as a short, stripped-back video shot by Mikael Jansson.
The video sees Adut Akech and Rianne van Rompaey twirling, laughing and posing in Virginie Viard‘s latest creations, and it was nice to see a little more diversity in the casting.
Virginie explained that punks were the main source of inspiration for the collection. Punk and Chanel? We weren’t expecting this vibe from Virginie Viard but 2020 keeps hitting us with surprises. In a statement, the designer explained that she “was thinking about a punk princess coming out of Le Palace at dawn, with a taffeta dress, big hair, feathers and lots of jewellery.”
Virginie cited Karl Lagerfeld as another inspiration as the Chanel legend “would go to Le Palace, [and] would accompany these very sophisticated and very dressed up women, who were very eccentric too.”
Glistening tweeds were of course a recurrent theme, as well as metallic tones and puffed skirts.
