Chanel’s highly anticipated spring/summer 2019 collection is available in boutiques this month. The ready-to-wear line was designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld who sadly passed away on February 19th 2019. The house’s long-time creative director, who joined Chanel in 1983, was known to the world as a creative genius. Virginie Viard (Lagerfeld’s closest collaborator for more than 30 years) has been appointed as the new creative director of Chanel.
On October 2nd2018, the French fashion house turned the Grand Palais into an exotic beach complete with actual sand and sea against a stunning backdrop. Top models, including Kaia Gerber, Vittoria Ceretti and Adut Akech stormed the sand-covered catwalk in sophisticated ensembles with a sporty twist. Looks – in both vibrant and monochrome hues - included tweed jackets (oversize and fitted) paired with leggings and cycling shorts and two-tone cashmere cardigans (featuring a new Chanel motif split in two syllables) worn with impeccably-cut denim.
The accessories comprised of double-visor straw caps, fingerless racing gloves, colourful mules in PVC and lambskin and variations of the ultra-chic side-pack bag. What’s more? A lot of the costume jewellery pieces in the collection spelled out the Chanel logo in large letters. #welove.
The collection is currently available in Chanel boutiques worldwide.
