CHANEL’s latest collection is now available to the public.

Yesterday, the CHANEL 2021/22 Métiers d’art fashion show took place. The show, by Virginie Viard, took place in the19M – a building designed by CHANEL and located in Paris. The collection was created with the intention of being “metropolitan yet sophisticated”. Some details of the collection, such as the embroidery and the structure, are a tribute to the architecture of the19M.

Viard says about the building designed by CHANEL, “It’s a vast, very open space, with a facade adorned with white concrete nets, a garden, beautiful walkways and a large gallery where exhibitions will also be held.”

The show started with a black ankle-length button-up dress with two pockets adorned with white checks and beading at the hip. After the opening look, tweed jackets, matching sets and a myriad of other clothing styles hit the runway in black, white and various pops of color. The show ended in a sequined white shirt and matching pants, with a black sash tied around the waist and black pant inseams. The final look came with a black coat with a white interior that the model wore just off the shoulder.

“I wanted each model, drawn by a different illustrator, to represent one of the Maisons d’art and evolve in a little story inspired by a CHANEL icon”, explains Viard. “I wanted to illustrate each House as best as possible, but with a twist.”

For the finale, the models parade behind the white pillars of the19M to join the track. Onlookers cheered as the models took their final walk, and the show ended with Viard makes a brief appearance.

CHANEL Ambassador Soo Joo Park, also known as Ether, performed a song at the end of the show after walking down the catwalk from a selection of music specially made for the collection. To see the full collection, take a look at the film of the show below.
