CHANEL FALL 2023 HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION
Chanel's new Haute Couture collection is made of contrasts and balance, is the portrait of a sensitive yet bold Parisienne.
July 7, 2023
The Chanel Fall 2023 Haute Couture collection was presented on the riverbanks of the Seine, is adorned with embroidered fruits and flowers motifs reminiscent of the still-lives dear to pictural arts. Silhouettes play with masculine codes, mixing together rigour and asymmetry, a self-confident and discreet figure.
“Playing with opposites and contrasts, with nonchalance and elegance, is like standing on a line between strength and delicacy, which, at CHanel, is what we call allure,” explains Virginie Viard.
A symbol of the creative energy that flows through the city, its river, romantic and tumultuous, open to the world, meanders around history of art’s hotspots. The fruit basket, a motif dear to the art of painting, echoes the wicker basket favoured by the Parisienne of the 1970s, while delicate flowers and wild fruit, strawberries and blackberries, blossom over the embroidery.
Long, masculine-inspired overcoats, diaphanous blouses belted over flat-pleated golden tweed skirts, precious vest tops, pin-striped trousers and men’s waistcoats, a long black chiffon dress of infinite lightness, painted eyewear and two-tone Mary-Janes: the collection plays with the codes of Chanel, rigour and asymmetry, discreet colours and vibrant shades, assurance and discretion.
Ambassadors and friends of the House share their impressions on the Chanel Fall 2023 Haute Couture collection presented on the riverbanks of the Seine, in Paris.
