The Best Looks From Chanel Fall/Winter 2020 Collection
Updating signature design elements from the past, the new collection is essentially lead designer Virginie Viard's love letter to Chanel
Models walked leisurely down the runway, occasionally chatting with one another at the Chanel fall/winter 2020 show – a concept designed by Viard inspired by women who embrace freedom and simplicity. "Romanticism but without any flourishes," she said.
Here are some of our favourite looks from the show:
Cross My Heart
The geometric cross in clashing jewel colours (not unlike stained glass) recalls the time when Gabrielle Chanel attended school at the Abbey of Aubazine – this period of her childhood had inspired many of her designs.
Gold-accented buttons, embroidered sequins and jewellery give the classic tweed a fresh appeal but none more so than when paired with ostrich-feathered sleeves and a mandarin collar (below).
Edging towards punk, the leather pieces made quite a statement in dark tones embellished with big metallic buttons.
One of the more outstanding accessories were a pair of seven-league leather boots inspired by a classic photo of the late Karl Lagerfeld in a striped suit and riding boots.
Bonus: Quilted Icons
The quilt-patterned bags and pouches come with a twist of pearls, embroidery and two-toned. Swipe the gallery above to see the colourful variations.
