Virginie Viard‘s vision for Fall/Winter 2020 at Chanel embodies the free-spirited femininity of the modern woman. She translated that mood with a collection that focuses primarily on easy separates like jodhpur trousers, silk tops, and obviously, Chanel’s iconic tweed jackets.
The handful of dresses presented were rendered in silk taffeta or velvet (all done in black). They eschewed any ostentation, relying instead on cut and silhouette to translate the collection’s nuanced romanticism through gigot sleeves and gathers.
And as with all Chanel collections, the accessories completed the looks with their precious finishes – a testament to the craft and flair that are at the heart of the maison. Click through to see 10 ways all of these elements come together to create the modern woman’s wardrobe.
