Virginie Viard presented the Chanel Fall/Winter 2022 Haute Couture collection at the Palais Galliera, Paris Museum of fashion and fashion history, inspired by impressionist paintings, and interpreted by colorful tweed and whimsical embellishment.
“It was when I rediscovered these portraits of Gabrielle Chanel dressed up in black or white 1880s-style dresses, that I immediately thought about tableaux,” said Viard. “Works by Berthe Morisot, Marie Laurencin and Édouard Manet. There are impressionist-inspired dresses, skirts that look like paintings and a long white satin dress punctuated with black bows like Morisot’s…”
Viard set out to create a collection that would warm up the gray winter of 2022, as the multicolor tweed of a coat replicates layered paint strokes, paired with sequin embroidery motifs and pink and yellow pompoms as if they were a splash of paint on canvas.
Mikael Jansson captured the collection in classic black and white, as actress and Chanel ambassador Margaret Qualley flutters about on the rooftops of the museum next to the Eiffel Tower, draped in a satin dress, tailored blazer and matching waistcoat, silk V-waist ball skirt, and bustier in pink broderie anglaise.
The collection preview short film by Sofia and Roman Coppola presents a sneak peak at the Fall/Winter preparations, starring Qualley, who closes the show in a bridal gown, and follows her final dress fitting in the Haute Couture Salons and through the halls of the Palais Galliera. Jannson framed the seamstresses and seamsters who stitched the paintings to life in Chanel’s Haute Couture ateliers for the film as well.
“There are dresses embroidered with water lilies, a jacket in a black tweed crafted from feathers with red and pink flowers,” said Viard. “I was also thinking about English gardens. I like to mix a touch of England with a very French style. It’s like blending the masculine and the feminine, which is what I’ve done with this collection too. That twist is very much a part of who I am.”
