The Chanel Spring/Summer 2020 Couture Collection has just been shown in Paris. Classic silhouettes, sober colors and traditional prints - Virginie Viard's new collection is saturated with the nostalgia.
During couture shows, we all expect to see revolutionary color schemes, asymmetric cut and grotesque silhouettes - in short, works of fashionable art. However, this is not the path that creative director Chanel takes. It is classics and elegance, that makes up the brand’s DNA. It has become the basis for the new collection.
Strict jackets combined with skirts, long, almost shapeless dresses and sundresses opened the show.
The new collection is dominated by a grey color combined with black and white. Such a color scheme may seem boring, but only if you don’t pay attention to the details.
Decoration is the key point of the new collection. They don’t allow us to confuse outfits from the new collection with similar dresses and skirts from the archived looks of the brand. We can’t help, but looking at openwork cuffs and collars, mother-of-pearl buttons, sheering tulle and drapery.
Despite the fact that bright colors didn’t find a place in the new collection, it still looks festive due to the dazzling white dresses decorated with lace and elegant patterns.
One of the few bright accents of the collection is the floral appliqués, on which craftsmen from the Chanel studio worked manually, decorating the airy dresses.
