Dauphinette / FW24 Collection

Published

The Vegetarian 

The name, for this collection was derived from electronic pop duo 30H!3’s hit 2008 single, DON’TTRUSTME:

You tell your boyfriend, if he says he’s got beef

That I’m a vegetarian and I ain’t fucking scared of him

In 2018, I called my new clothing brand “the Happiest Brand on Earth” in hopes that it would usher the minds of friends, editors, and customers towards some utopic heaven place rooted in vibrance, abundance, and feminine beauty. In one of the poems from Maragaret Atwood’s 1974 book titled You Are

Happy, she writes:
Last year I abstained
this year I devour
without guilt
which is also an art

Unsurprisingly I’ve found that the commercial pursuit of happiness is a rather abstinent practice. I’m a growing, sartorially starving girl, and I have to live up to my appetite. I’m equal parts whimsical and insatiable, ethereal and feral, kind-eyed and cold-blooded. I’m a practicing vegetarian in a ferociously carnal state of mind. The same part of my silly brain is obsessed with both Atwood and 30H!3’s depictions of appetite- I’m inspired by both’s commitment to guiltlessness and artistic perspective on shrugging it all off.

For all current purposes, this collection is a response to all that carnivorous lust: for a seat at the table, the satisfaction of feeling expert at something, the unsinkable feeling that my flowers are growing into something a little thornier. It’s built up of many things-over six hundred beetle wings, tens of thousands of strands of braided hair, faux prosciutto, pâté knives….the list goes on.

This collection is not about being the Happiest Brand on Earth, or about being a brand at all. It’s work that can be worn, but doesn’t have to be. Even after desperately seeking out the technical skills and know-how to make astute ready-to-wear, my favorite things are made on the floor of my apartment. I’m an artist practicing guiltlessness. I’m a vegetarian devouring the meat-lover’s special. I’m the monster hiding under your bed. For a moment, forget the Happiest Brand on Earth. Meet Bedroom Floor Couture.

Chanel – Fall-Winter 2024/25 Ready-To-Wear Collection

Published

on

Deauville is where everything started for the House. 1912, the creation of her hat shop and then very quickly the first clothes with their visionary, radical style. It’s where it all began for Gabrielle Chanel. This story is very close to my heart,” confides Virginie Viard. On the racecourse, on the seaside, at the gaming table, in restaurants and palaces, on the “Planches” boardwalk: everything is about elegance and self-staging.

For this collection, we recreated the Deauville boardwalk, she adds. Giant screens on which long, romantic silhouettes stroll in the light from dawn to dusk.” Shrouded in mystery, the models walk along the beach. The 1920s and 70s cross paths and intertwine.

Androgynous and cinematic, the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2024/25 Ready-to-Wear collection imagined by Virginie Viard draws its femininity from Gabrielle Chanel’s own wardrobe and its masculinity from the subtle elegance of winter sojourns by the sea. Broad-shouldered peacoats and long dressing-gown-style belted coats are worn over tweed suits – box-pleated skirts, culottes or cropped trousers –, drop-front trousers or trousers with tabs at the back.


Chunky sailor sweaters and knits featuring the landscapes of Deauville alternate with silk blouses with middy collars, herringbone prints, low-cut tops with flounces, jumpsuits and negligees whose delicacy evokes gentle waves breaking and a soft wind blowing.

The palette takes its vibrant or pastel shades of pink, mauve, orange and pale blue from the ever-changing colours of the Deauville sky, along with brown and gold lamé. 35mm film and cinema tickets: prints refer to the town’s connection with the 7th art, its American Film Festival and Claude Lelouch’s A Man and a Woman, to which Inez and Vinoodh’s film opening the show pays tribute.

The silhouette of David Bowie, the magnetism of film stars walking on the sand, like Anouk Aimée, a great friend of Gabrielle Chanel… this collection pays homage to these familiar figures.”

The iconic bags are omnipresent, as are the pastel-hued wide-brimmed hats, colourful silk scarves, heeled knee-high boots and thigh-high boots in sheepskin, a direct nod to Anouk Aimée’s coat in A Man and a Woman.

It’s a very warm collection, with layers of materials, colours and volumes. It pays tribute to Deauville, the legendary place where Gabrielle Chanel’s destiny changed forever.”

The collection follows spontaneous effortlessness with further emphasis on a defined silhouette. From the iconic graphic knitwear to the brand’s elevated streetwear with technical materials; paloma wool’s collection exudes a sense of sophistication and versatility. Velvet pieces imbue femininity and elevate the overall aesthetic with a touch of luxury, while multiposition pieces offer various styling options. The inclusion of silk garments facilitates effortless layering, and argyle-printed knitwear sets a distinctive tone throughout the collection.
