"I knew we couldn't organize a big show, that we would have to invent something else, so I came up with the idea of a small cortege that would come down the stairs of the Grand Palais and pass beneath arches of flowers," Virginie Viard explained in her interview with Marie Claire UK. The Chanel Haute Couture collection was presented in Paris on Tuesday morning in the online format – the fashion show has the spirit of a big family celebration or a bohemian wedding.
Since it was not possible to hold the show in the usual format due to the pandemic, together with director Anton Corbijn, the brand have shot a mini-film dedicated to the new collection. In this video, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Lily-Rose Depp, Vanessa Paradis, and Charlotte Casiraghi performed as guests and watched the show from the auditorium.
Retro wedding motives were traced not only in the decor of the catwalk but also in the collection itself. The show began with the release of models dressed in tweed pantsuits with cropped vests, jackets, and cardigans, reminiscent of children's outfits, who traditionally open the ceremony and enter the hall carrying baskets with flower petals.

The following looks - dresses in ruffles and lace in the form of intertwining daisies, organza tutu skirts, and silk shirts would suit the wedding guests. The final look was a bridesmaid dress in the style of the 20s with sleeves and a long train. The model appeared on the podium with a white horse to match the whole outfit.
