It’s CULTED with your 60-second FASHION BLAST.
Yesterday, Chanel presented their Cruise 2020 show in video format, bringing us the biggest digital fashion show since the Covid-19 pandemic.
The holiday-inspired collection was presented against a soothing mediterranean backdrop.
The models wore subdued clothing, including sequined bikinis, pink bouclé skirt suits, and waist chains were a go-to accessory for this collection. Tie-dye lamé dresses were as formal as the collection got, which was otherwise dominated by wide leg trousers, and light cardigans with a stripe motif.
But, whether it was the backdrop of worldwide atrocities, or a simple miss by Viard – the collection yielded some strong opinions.
NY Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman commented “it was more like a return to some of high fashion’s escapist failings of the past rather than a meaningful step toward(s) the future”.
Alexandra Mondalek also asked twitter “without the fanfare of a big runway show: Is the Chanel resort collection all that special?”
The show came with the announcement that Chanel will not be changing its fashion calendar anytime soon.
So guys, what did you think of Chanel’s first digital collection and decision?
