Despite the strict corona rules in paris, the fashion house chanel showed its collection for spring and summer 2021 in front of a real audience on tuesday in the french capital.
However, the luxury label had greatly reduced the number of its guests: only around 150 – instead of the usual 1500 – were invited to the grand palais. So it was unusually quiet this morning: no traffic chaos, no concert of horns and no crowds of people in front of the entrances. Among the celebrity guests were actress marion cotillard and model lily-rose depp – daughter of vanessa paradis and johnny depp.
On the runway, chanel showed sequined pantsuits, elegant tweed suits cinched at the waist, and feminine skirts in various lengths. Combined with jewelry and veil hairdressing, the looks were reminiscent of the style of a hollywood diva. Even the decoration – the chanel logo in the form of huge white illuminated letters – was reminiscent of the world-famous lettering in the hollywood hills. Creative director virginie viard also focuses on fresh, young creations for the coming year – some models wore bright neon colors, dresses with chanel prints and short bermuda or three-quarter pants.
Paris fashion week was due to end on tuesday afternoon with the louis vuitton fashion show. Of the more than 80 presentations during the fashion week, a total of 18 shows took place with an audience, albeit under strict hygiene regulations. Some fashion houses, such as balmain or chloe, also decided to show under the open sky to minimize the risk of infection with the corona virus.
