To reveal the beauty philosophy of the French fashion house, let’s go back a bit, let your mind drift back to the memory region and join the designer Virginie Viard to contemplate the art in her favorite film.
Chanel spring-summer 2023 natural charm in every breath
The work Last Year at Marienbad (1961) by director Alain Resnais won the Lion d’Or award at the Venice film festival and entered the “golden table” of the film industry. The costumes designed by Coco Chanel in the film vividly preserve the original Parisian fashion. The style of the lead actress Delphine Seyrig today became the inspiration for CHANEL’s latest collection.
The film opens with scenes depicting the baroque architecture of a hotel in the last century. Coming and going and leaving stories there are graceful and luxurious upper-class women in aristocratic gowns, very “ chic ”. CHANEL’s collection also begins with a soft, flexible chiffon shirt. It brings mystery to the long-sleeved shirt covered with overlapping vintage photos, the same formula as this catwalk scene.
The history of cinema has its roots in black and white. The black and white beats have also accompanied CHANEL through many vanities and decaying stages of fashion history. That simplicity has stood the test of time and is the perfect “ink” for painting beautiful portraits. Still the same tweed, pearl-wearing girls on the runway year after year, amid a myriad of new trends that never faltered.
About a hundred years ago, the pioneering Coco Chanel dressed women in modest black dresses as if denying all attempts to touch beauty for decades. But she also left a statement that revealed all of her intentions: “When the body is no longer limited by pure grace when the passion for beautiful looks gives way to charismatic beauty.
From the inside – a charisma that comes from the mind, not the pride on the outside – a woman reaches the highest level of beauty, in a natural, fresh, and minimalist way. It’s been a long way for her to come closer to the perfect version of herself.”
End of the symphony of black and white notes, the collection wanders a bit too gentle and clear pastel tones. But with the design muse, Ambassador Kristen Stewart, a mischievous and liberal image appeared with loose pants or jumpsuit personality.
To sublimate emotions, Art Director Virginie Viard captured the splendor of the light city of Paris and dropped it into eye-catching iridescent dresses. The beauty of the night also becomes more colorful with a thoughtful pink-purple or deep ash gray. Add feathers so the fun shades flap their wings in the air.
This season CHANEL helps her girls shine with lots of evening bags and sparkling shoes like stepping out of the galaxy. Contrary to the trend of colors spreading on the Paris catwalks, the French brand still believes that white or black pearls and gems are women’s lifelong friends. Statement earrings are made very delicately like “picked down” from the stars. Last but not least, how can you party without a pair of “fancy” opera gloves?
