It was a matter of time for Chanel Cruise 2021 and the creative director, Virginie Viard transported her audience back to the sixties in a whimsical fashion display that referenced the work of famed film director Jean Cocteau.
The collection was showcased at the Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence, a notable art-based quarry in France that’s projecting images of famous paintings and of course, the place where Cocteau also filmed Testament of Orpheus. According to the designer, she ‘wanted something quite rock.’
“Echoing the extreme modernity of Cocteau’s film, I wanted something quite rock,” creative director Virginie Viard stated in the show notes. “A look that recalls as much the modernity of the sixties as that of punk.”
Following Viard’s introspect, the collection revisited the house’ penchant for tweeds. Also, frothy, ethereal, and romantic pieces added to the highlights of the collection. Here, keep scrolling to see all the looks.
