The world’s biggest superbrand – which has previously transformed the interior of the Grand Palais into an airport terminal and a Chanel-branded supermarket – chose to keep things relatively simple as guests took their seats in an intimate walled garden circling a fountain centrepiece.
The models crowned with floral hairpieces and tulle veils, are perched on matching booties in tweed, leather or embroidered tulle, with transparent heels. CHANEL’s woman of the season blossoms from beneath layers and layers of silk tulle, chiffon and organza pleated or enriched with botanical embroidery composed of sequins, beads, stones and strass. Feathers caress her shoulders or her ankles, extending the woven tweed and the matte satin. Within this softness, her femininity is expressed through a palette of gentle tones: tender pinks, coral, frosted lemon, mint, grey and pale taupe. Then reaffirmed in more intense colours including black, sparkling silver, ink, fuchsia chlorophyll green and electric blue.
