Something for the grandma, something for the bride
Although last year brought nothing but coronavirus and dark thoughts to many, Virginia Viard seems to remain positive, even projecting that attitude to her newest Channel collection.
The inspiration drawn from the wedding atmosphere and passion for life is obvious at first sight and lends this collection some of the youthful, timeless spirit that Chanel sometimes lacks. Casting convention aside, the designer went mostly for a relaxed, boho look, complemented with an elegant touch and some traditional menswear elements. The outcome is a chic collection catering to the bridesmaid, mother and grandmother of the bride and, of course, the bride herself.
This snow-white crêpe gown covered in rhinestones and pearls became the highlight of the whole show. Can you hear the wedding bells?
Welcome the spring in lace and tulle galore
Whereas in the last years‘ collection a sign of spring mood was hard to find, this year there’s plenty to choose from. Did you think flowers in your hair or flower crowns were a dated look? Chanel will have you think again. Same goes for the everlasting lace, florals, bows and ruffles, which are not going anywhere anytime soon. Dramatic volume isn’t your thing? This season, stop shying away from it and embrace it instead.
Tweed is forever
No Chanel collection could do without the iconic tweeds. This year you may choose from delicate, cream-coloured suits and romantic style dresses. For the bling lovers, there’s a combo of a luxurious, silver sequined jacket with loose-fitting tweed pants.
So, where do you stand? Did Chanel convince you of its qualities right from the start of this year? See more Spring 2021 haute couture collection pictures in the gallery at the end of the article!
