Fall season and tweed are the narrative thread of Virginie Viard work for the Chanel Fall/Winter 2022 collection. 

Scotland’s countryside, with all kind of flowers and greenery, is set to house the collection. Performing a brief getaway there are hunting jackets, coats and rubber boots, white are elements borrowed from the men’s wardrobe. Viard wants to show how young and powerful women would Leo to appear wearing Chanel for their everyday life, with a lot of ease and in a bright personal way. 

“I was also thinking about England in the 1960s,

and very colorful record covers.”

– Virginie Viard

THE GIVENCHY CODE

2024.03.01

From tailored suits to evening gowns, each piece is enriched with details that evoke the heritage of the Maison. A cinematic chromatic symphony, ranging from black to navy blue, lends the collection the typical Givenchy boldness, while graphic necklines and sartorial formality sculpt a distinctive silhouette.

POWER IS OUTSPOKEN

An elegant sense of power pervades the latest Saint Laurent runway. There’s a duality that merges elegance and provocation, a carnal convergence between garment and body. Revisiting Yves’s codes, blouses, shirts, ultra-tight skirts, and silk dresses culminate in a powerful aesthetic imagery.

FW24

Creative freedom

2024.02.28

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.

Her words become the focal point of a visual reflection unfolding through a selection of images from the MEP collection in Paris. These photographs merge with Ernaux’s text, creating a social and political narrative.
