Designers get very #extra during the in-between seasons. For Virginie Viard’s first collection for Chanel, the Grand Palais was transformed into a train station; Dior infiltrated Morocco; Prada came to NYC. See all of the best look from the season built for fabulous vacations.
Virginie Viard came out of the gate for her first collection with a bang. Or perhaps, it’s more apropos to say she pulled into the station? The Grand Palais was transformed into a chic train station, complete with Chanel-ready destinations listed like Antibes and Rome. The looks honor the aesthetic of Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, while putting Viard’s stamp subtly throughout. We’re still getting to know her, but this Chanel girl has something very cool and bit mysterious about her—those all-over logos, those big bows, the mini skirts. There was iconic black and white, but more fun with color, pink, green, blue, fuchsia, mauve and sky contrasted with deep bistre, brown, cobalt, and navy. We’re on board for all of it—literally.
