Chanel presents its Fall/Winter 2022 collection in Paris. A tribute to the tweed that the brand has become so synonymous with, Virginie Viard paid homage to the House’s DNA.
“Devoting the entire collection to tweed is a tribute,” says Virginie Viard. “We followed the footsteps of Gabrielle Chanel along the River Tweed, to imagine tweeds in the colours of this landscape. Like that of a long pink coat mottled with blue and purple, or a burgundy suit with a delicate gold shimmer. This is what Gabrielle Chanel would do on her walks through the Scottish countryside: she would gather ferns and bouquets of flowers to inspire the local artisans for the tones she wanted.”
A muted yet uplifting pastel-hued colour palette offers tweed in a range of styles and colours, redefying one of Chanel’s most recognised stylistic codes. Jackets in psychedelic colours offered a dash of colour while masculine or slightly oversized cuts offer a more formal approach. Trousers in black panne velvet and tight skirts are worn with long socks and pointed pumps with a mini stiletto heel in patent leather or bouclette wool, as well as boots and thigh-high boots in black or beige rubber
The collection was presented in a space at the Grand Palais Éphémère which was itself swathed entirely in tweed.
