Chanel’s Fall Collection Is a Mix of Ski Wear and ’70s Cool
Chanel hosted its fall/winter 2021 show in Paris’s restaurant Castel, which boasts many small rooms that models walked through like being filled in a tiny house. While the presentation itself was made in black and white, the collection was full of tweed textures, quilted outerwear, and pops of fuchsia, cobalt, yellow, and lilac.
“This collection is a mix of two influences,” said Chanel creative director Virginie Viard in a press statement. “The ambiance of ski holidays, which I adore, and a certain idea of cool Parisian chic, from the 1970s to now.”
Layers of jewelry, gorgeous tweed coats, embroidered quilted outerwear, and ski salopettes are the focus of Chanel’s fall/winter collection. Viard continues to play with the neon color palette of spring/summer 2021, while ushering in a more casual and comfortable silhouette for the Chanel woman.
Although tweed is the signature fabric of the French fashion house, we love that Viard is offering an oversize update to the classic coat, in addition to longline cardigans, faux fur jackets, and lamé trench coats for fall/winter 2021. “Today some of these silhouettes make me think of Stella Tennant’s allure, the way she wore certain pieces, it was so Chanel,” Viard added.
