The french maison supports the Cinémathèque Française institution on the occasion of the exhibition “Romy Schneider, L’Exposition”, open to the public from March 16th to July 31st.

An essential figure in the European cinema of the 1970s, Romy Schneider has always expressed her gratitude to Gabrielle Chanel, crediting the designer for helping her leaving behind the role of Sissi, a trilogy of highly successful films from the 1950s, which, however, overwhelmed the actress, who was unable to find her own identity as everyone saw her as the eternal Princess Sissi.
Gabrielle Chanel met the Austrian actress through the director Luchino Visconti, who asked the designer to dress her for his short movie “Il Lavoro”, the third of the four parts of the collective film “Boccaccio 70”, so thanks to the help of the famous french brand, Sissi disappears, allowing the birth of Romy Schneider: a new silhouette, a new language, a new destiny, an elegant, strong and independent woman.
Coco Chanel taught Romy Schneider the sense of elegance and shared with her the Chanel aesthetic and attitude. To emphasize this connection and the credit the actress gave to Chanel’s designer, Romy Schneider often said that three people played a decisive role in her life and work as an actress: Alain Delon, Luchino Visconti and Gabrielle Chanel. Since then, the actress has worn Chanel, both on and off screen.
For the Romy Schneider exhibition, Chanel is lending a mottled tweed suit from the Fall-Winter 1961/62 Haute Couture collection, similar to the one worn by Romy Schneider in Visconti’s film, as well as five photographic prints taken between 1961 and 1965 by Shahrokh Hatami and George Michalke.
An eternal friend of the Maison, Romy Schneider will forever be the inspirational embodiment of the CHANEL allure.

“Chanel taught me everything without ever giving me advice. Chanel is not a designer like the others… Because it’s a coherent, logical, ‘ordered’ whole: like the Doric order or the Corinthian order, there is a ‘Chanel order’, with its reasons, its rules, its rigours. It is an elegance that satisfies the mind even more than the eyes”.



Creative freedom


A collection that rethinks the concept of fashion as a manifestation of power and full representation of creativity, investigating the historical legacy and future of femininity. The looks in Dior’s FW24 collection convey the radiant power of a pluralistic, autonomous and versatile femininity, reactivating that key moment of creative freedom of which Miss Dior is the emblem.




The Fall Winter 2024 collection by Maximilian Davis is an interpretation of the 1920s through a modern lens, particularly inspiring as it offers a new perspective on the elegance and rebellion of that era.




Like the scorched landscape that offers its harsh yet fertile land, Bottega Veneta’s FW collection invites reflection and hope. It is a testament to the inner strength that emerges from the trial by fire, conveying a message of resilience and rebirth as life’s challenges are faced.


Elegance and Tradition


To celebrate and renew the invitation to an open dialogue with the city of Milan, Loro Piana FW24 reiterates its delicate and calm language of making fashion, a Loro Piana method, that is, the absolute search toward the consistency of product history and above all a sustainable and reliable fashion idea.


Nightly Tribute


Emporio Armani pays homage to a luminous night sky, quilted with stars and ruled by a shining moon. The FW 24 collection captures a chromatic sensation and translates it into wearable forms.
