Chanel doubles its tweeds for its fall show
PARIS, March 8 (Reuters) – Chanel took to a tweed-lined stage for its fall collection on Tuesday, sending models parading down a dark, carpeted catwalk wearing the skirt and jacket ensembles, glittering dresses and belted overcoats from the French fashion house.
The show presentation took place on the last day of Paris Fashion Week, capping a series of industry shows that were also held in New York, London and Milan.
Chanel‘s creative director, Virginie Viard, wove patches of bright colors – pink, turquoise and purple – in the range of autumnal tones, accessorizing the looks with thick thigh-high stockings, striking thigh-high boots and the famous handbags. Hand branded chain shoulder strap, some in mini sizes.
Reflecting the dark mood caused by the war in Ukraine, the Beatles song “A Day in the Life” played as models in schoolgirl hairstyles walked past the front row of celebrities, parading in looks ranging from l elegant to the loose, a few with bare shoulders.
Chanel announced on Friday that it would suspend operations in Russia, along with rivals LVMH (LVMH.PA), Hermès and Kering, owner of Gucci (PRTP.PA). nL5N2V73O4
