Paris – 31 Rue Camcon 2019/20 Métiers D’art Collection – Chanel

Published

on

Who hasn’t dreamt of climbing the mythical Art Deco staircase at 31 rue Cambon in Paris, of entering Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment, of discovering this intimate, baroque space filled with her books and favourite objects, before going downstairs to attend a show in the salon? On December 4th 2019, it’s the entire atmosphere of 31 rue Cambon that has been recreated at the Grand Palais, to present the 2019/20 Métiers d’art collection. This emblematic address, the heart of CHANEL’s Fashion creation, was transposed to the nave of the Grand Palais, transformed for the occasion into a timeless space. An extremely refined écrin for a collection that renders the codes and the allure of CHANEL sublime.

There is a sort of simplicity in going back to Chanel’s ABC. We don’t need to do too much,” confides Virginie Viard,I didn’t want the usual long-distance travelling of the Métiers d’art collections, I wanted to stay in Paris. So, we had to think of a new way of doing things. And then there are the codes invented by Gabrielle Chanel and made sublime by Karl Lagerfeld, which I like mixing up too. I like the idea of a patchwork. For me, it has to be on the same level as in real life. I always question the context, which has nothing to do with the way we lived decades ago: what would a woman like today? How would she wear it?

This very contemporary collection of an iconic elegance comes as jumpsuits made of tweed so fine it is as supple as knitwear, and as short suit jackets with rounded edges, worn with low waisted skirts, slit at the front to liberate legs in motion; and on the ribbon of bare skin between the two, a fine belt in chains and pearls.
A little black jacket buttons up the side, a suit becomes a dress with an asymmetric décolletage and a long pointed train attached to one shoulder, flowing down the back. Inspired by a pink tweed suit created by Gabrielle Chanel in 1960, whose lining was tie-dyed in black, blue, pink and mauve, here the tie-dye is on the outside of the tweed of several suits, and all over the chiffon of a long dress cut into a pointe, trimmed with ethereal feathers, as well as on the braids and on the iconic bags of the House, the 11.12 and the 2.55. Finally, the BOY CHANEL and CHANEL’s GABRIELLE become miniature bags which are worn as jewellery.

Emotion vibrates in the air as the models descend the white-trimmed beige steps of the grand staircase and walk through the salon. Straight, double-breasted coats in black fine bouclé cashmere with belts in long chiffon ribbons embroidered with wheat, ribbons and chains in sequins and beads, appear in succession.
Slender silhouettes pass by in a dress of embroidered black lace, neckline framed with feathers, or in a diaphanous dress of pearl-coloured lace sprinkled with tulle camellias embroidered in relief, accessorised with a minaudière in the shape of a golden cage constellated with strass, a reference to the little bird cage present in Mademoiselle’s apartment.

A long dress in white duchess satin with a pure line, worn with a cape, double-breasted black strapless dresses and a champagne-hued lace ensemble – inspired by the legendary portrait of Gabrielle Chanel photographed by Cecil Beaton in 1937 – of a sensual suppleness that swathes the body like a second skin. The silhouette is punctuated with a godet in the same lace that floats like a trail of perfume…
The camellias made by Lemarié become sculptures and completely cover little evening bomber jackets: one is quilted, with flowers made of duchess satin, with strass at their centre, and worn with black sequinned trousers; the other is white with flowers in silk pongee, their centres embroidered like jewels.

The two-tone, another CHANEL code, features on the shoes made by Massaro – like these gold leather pumps embellished with little bows with black toes – and the graphic suits that alternate black with white.
The wheat, the ribbon, the pearls are embroidered by the House of Lesage onto a precious strapless dress accompanied by a tulle coat of an exceptional refinement.
While black and gold are very present, pink appears as one of the key colours of the collection: soft pink, apricot, raspberry and even garnet on the tweed of both skirt and trousers suits, and also on a tweed jumpsuit. The suit is also revisited in a fuchsia pink satin, trimmed with braid made from an intense pink tweed, while the skirt, pleated at the front and straight at the back, imposes a fluid and liberated allure.

Diaphanous and regal, dresses in the colour of weather, as if they’ve been dipped in a summer sky as well as a long dress in silk chiffon with its entirely pleated skirt, streaked with braids made of flowers, halo the show with an otherworldly aura.

Silhouettes are accessorised with an accumulation of costume jewellery: cuff bracelets, plastron necklaces in pearls and strass from which sautoir necklaces and other pendants all seem to spark, chokers with white strass stars, while chain belts are embellished with rows of pearls, bows and camellias.

Behind this collection is the constant creative dialogue between Virginie Viard and the Métiers d’art that has lasted three decades. A vision of pure magic that, on December 4th 2019 at the Grand Palais, within a showcase of Gabrielle Chanel’s talismans, transcended the very notion of fashion to achieve a timeless elegance, allure and beauty according to CHANEL.

The actresses and CHANEL ambassadors Kristen Stewart, Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose Depp, Penélope Cruz, Alma Jodorowsky, Marine Vacth and Yara Shahidi attended the runway show, as did friends of the House Sofia Coppola, Marion Cotillard, Isabelle Adjani, Carole Bouquet, Angèle, Margaret Qualley and Sébastien Tellier.

The show was followed by dinner at La Coupole, with a performance by the Belgian singer Angèle and a soirée at the dancing of La Coupole.

La Métamorphose – Collection ready to wear spring summer 2022 – Les dames de la côte

Published

on

A 100% eco-responsible collection: 100% natural cotton made in France, right down to the backpack closure cord made from a bio-degradable fiber.

Ewa and Margaret, the brand’s two founding sisters, promise us a chic and comfortable summer 2022. Impeccably cut pantsuits, available in jackets and shorts, feel good dresses, skirts tied at the waist, not to mention all the embroidery details on T-shirts or jackets, with a resolutely positive slogan: “Hello Love “.

A collection that takes us back to the era of Brigitte Bardot, innocently sexy, in soft colors like a seaside breeze. Note the irresistible accessories: hats and bags. A collection respectful of the planet that puts us in a good mood.

Chanel Spring-Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Published

on

The model Vivienne Rohner taking a photo: this is the black and white portrait that appears on the invitation and in the decor for the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear show: “Because fashion is about clothes, models and photographers,” confides Virginie Viard.Karl Lagerfeld used to photograph the CHANEL campaigns himself. Today, I call upon photographers. I love the way that they see CHANEL. It supports and inspires me.” The duo Inez & Vinoodh have signed the images for this collection, including five films featuring Lily-Rose Depp, Alma Jodorowsky, JENNIE, Rebecca Dayan and Quannah Chasinghorse-Potts all repeating the same gesture, a camera in hand. “It’s a magical object and a sexy gesture, which evokes so many memories. I used to love the sound of flashbulbs going off at the shows in the eighties, when the models were on a raised runway. I wanted to recapture that emotion.” And recreate that type of runway at the Grand Palais  ph m re, a human-sized space whose atmosphere made her yearn for, “a lot of very simple bathing suits in gold or white with black trimmings. Short dresses in pink or mauve tweed, fishnet skirts, jackets embellished with multicolour crochet and denim suits. There are also a lot of prints: big, colourful butterfly wings on black chiffon.” Certain silhouettes are punctuated with a big shopper or a soft quilted bag embellished with a large chain. The flared heels and the buckles of the Mary-Janes and sandals “remind us of pirate shoes,” Virginie Viard says with amusement. “I always like to have something romantic. A touch of mystery.

Vera Wang Bride svela la sua prima collezione

Published

on

Con “Vera Wang Bride” la designer più rinomata della moda sposa, rivela il suo bridal brand con un price level accessibile. Finalmente le spose di tutto il mondo potranno realizzare il sogno di indossare i suoi design iconici nel giorno del loro matrimonio.

Vera Wang Bride e Pronovias Group uniscono le forze e rivelano in esclusiva la prima collezione del brand. Il risultato è una collezione che presenta i tratti caratteristici e unici del design di Vera Wang amalgamati con fascino, sensualità, abilità artistica ed emozione.
Vera Wang, newyorkese e icona della moda contemporanea, è conosciuta in tutto il mondo per il suo design all’avanguardia. Ha vestito decine di VIP e celebrità tra cui Selena Gomez, Zendaya, Michelle Williams, Diane Kruger, Alicia Keys, Victoria Beckham, Hailey Bieber, Ariana Grande e Gwen Stefani.

L’essenza della collezione ruota intorno all’impiego di tessuti premium, alle finiture raffinate su volumi accentuati e alle nuove silhouette. Gli abiti combinano alla perfezione dettagli dalla finitura artigianale con trame pregiate e rappresentano un sogno che diventa realtà per tutte le spose amanti della moda.
Vera Wang Bride è un brand che parla di libertà, sperimentazione e innovazione, attraverso una destrezza tangibile per i dettagli e la tecnica sartoriale. In poche parole, non ci sono regole“, commenta Vera Wang. “Questa partnership con Pronovias Group mi ha permesso di spingermi oltre i miei confini creativi e di sviluppare un marchio globale a disposizione di tutte le spose a un prezzo accessibile.
Siamo davvero entusiasti di presentare questa collezione al mondo. Abbiamo lavorato duramente con Vera Wang e il suo team per realizzare questa collezione che è un vero e proprio riflesso della firma unica di Vera e dei suoi modelli iconici. Sono sicura che rappresenterà un passo avanti verso il consolidamento del brand” afferma Amandine Ohayon, CEO di Pronovias Group.
Le nuove tendenze evidenti nella prima collezione Vera Wang Bride includono gonne che cadono morbide al suolo, pizzi intrecciati e dettagli intricati, corsetteria a vista e micro- plissettature. Le silhouette variano dagli abiti a colonna alle proposte più minimal, e poi ancora drammatici ball gown e tagli più fluidi, linee ad A e sirene.

Il senso di modernità ha giocato un ruolo importante nella scelta di proporzioni, volumi, tessuti e trame“, spiega Vera Wang. “Ho anche aggiunto una forte enfasi al look giocando con ornamenti e accessori”. A tale scopo, gli abiti presentano accenti importanti come fiocchi oversize, eleganti cinture a fascia e maniche a mantella staccabili. Corone fantasiose, corpetti voluminosi, copricapi piumati e lunghi guanti in pelle aggiungono un tocco di fantasia e giocosità al total look di Vera Wang.

La prima collezione Vera Wang Bride è composta da 60 abiti disegnati interamente da Wang e il suo team. Saranno disponibili nei negozi Pronovias e in selezionate boutique in tutto il mondo a partire da settembre 2021.
Il mio intento era assicurarmi che certe caratteristiche distintive del design di Vera Wang Bride fossero ben identificabili“, spiega la stilista. “Le donne appassionate di moda noteranno subito l’amore per la decadenza decostruita di questa collezione che si esprime attraverso pizzi antichi, il romanticismo neogotico degli abiti in mikado, i corsetti slim, i look dei red carpet reintrerpretati in crepe bianco e l’innovazione architettonica delle costruzioni in plissé e drappeggi che vestono il corpo di un’eleganza nuova e contemporanea“.
Scelti dalla stessa Vera Wang, gli abiti che rappresentano al meglio questa prima collezione Vera Wang Bride:

  • Laurence, un abito a sirena con drappeggi e un’ironica gonna a palloncino in tulle.
  • Marion, abito ball gown in tulle nude con corpetto bustier effetto “sprays of sequins”.
  • Odette, un perfetto abito A-line con una costruzione del girovita che crea una perfetta proporzione.
  • Lola, un abito in crêpe pulito ed elegante con una sensuale schiena drappeggiata e una scollatura alare ispirata agli anni ’70.

Grazie a questa collezione, lo stile unico di Vera Wang sarà accessibile alle spose fashion- lover di tutto il mondo che potranno indossare gli abiti disegnati dall’iconica designer a un prezzo più accessibile (da 1.600€ a 4.000€), mantenendo il suo livello distintivo di qualità e artigianalità, e il valore di un design eclettico.

Come riassume Vera WangVera Wang Bride parla di una ragazza coraggiosa e con una sua identità. La moda le permette di compiere le proprie scelte, di abbracciare le emozioni e di essere fiere della propria individualità. Attraverso i miei progetti voglio esprimere rispetto, rispetto per il processo di progettazione. Rispetto per la qualità. Rispetto per l’immaginazione e l’individualità. Ma soprattutto rispetto per le donne.”
In linea con la politica di inclusività di Pronovias Group, gli abiti saranno  disponibili nelle taglie dalla 32 alla 60. Infine, per quanto riguarda la strategia sostenibile di Pronovias Group e il programma di CRS, saranno disponibili anche numerose opzioni realizzate in tessuti sostenibili e finiture ecologiche.
La designer Vera Wang presenterà personalmente la collezione su Instagram attarverso una diretta Live il 6 ottobre 2021. Segui il profilo @verawangbride per tutti gli aggiornamenti.
