The CHANEL Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection was showcased on October 6th 2020 at the Grand Palais in Paris. Many A-list guests attended in person, while some joined the event remotely, posing in front of a Chanel photo call, “making the experience global and inclusive,” Chanel announced in a press release.
Creative Director Virginie Viard said the collection was a tribute to Chanel muses around Hollywood’s cinematic scene.
“I was thinking about actresses at the photocall, on the red carpet, that moment when they’re being called to by the photographers: their faces a little distracted, their attitude a little out of sync with the outfits they’re wearing. And then there are the fans waiting for them behind the barriers, this very lively side to cinema that happens beyond cinema, that’s what I like. This collection is a tribute to the muses of the House. Some of them are far away, it’s been a long time since we saw them. Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld dressed so many actresses in films and in real life. I was thinking about them who make us dream so much. But without wanting to replicate. Without falling into a vintage citation. I wanted it to be very joyful, colorful, and very vibrant too,” remarked Virginie Viard, Creative Director of Chanel.
The collection is a melting pot of classic Chanel-wear as well as refreshing spring-summer feels: fluid dresses, neon colorways, vibrant bottoms and sequined shirts. Natural elegance is at the core of each look, incorporating both floral and crystalized bling garments. Color is not to be missed as it is everywhere to be seen from pink pants to rainbow printed tops. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
