Virginie Viard is looking to keep the house of Chanel young, fun, and steadfastly Parisian. With a set built to look like the iconic rooftops of Paris, the look was based on Nouvelle Vague or New Wave. Little hats, ultra feminine mini skirts, tweedy two piece suits with cropped pants, and some well-positioned denim brought the ’50s look into the now. And plenty of logo dresses will please costumers who like to wear their Chanel loud and proud.

[watch to the end for a surprise with our EIC @kennieboy!] This season’s @Chanelofficial collection was depicted as a journey over the rooftops of Paris recreated in the #Grandpalais, with a cinematic Nouvelle Vague atmosphere. With fluid and light silhouettes, the looks were infused with insouciance and a breeze of youthfulness and liberty. Jackets with flounced collars and cuffs and skater skirts reinterpreted the classic #Chanel tweed suit. In the transparency of the organza, was revealed the work of the atelier, the structure of the dresses and their handkerchief hems. This was a collection that was urban, in motion, never the same and yet always identifiably Chanel with the #VirginieViard touch. #ChanelSpringSummer #pfw #harpersbazaarsg #paris #parisfashionweek
