As you may know already, CHANEL is always my most-anticipated show during Paris Fashion Week. I love seeing the new accessory designs for the next season, I love checking out the new selection of tweed blazers, wishing that perhaps one of them will be THE ONE I’ve been searching for. I always look forward to the reveal of the collection’s theme and the nearly-always-awe-inspiring set design. I know that it takes many hours/days/weeks/months to design a collection, cast the models, build the sets, and put it all together. A fashion show is a result of many hours of blood, sweat, and tears, and a culmination of so much hard work, which is why seeing that publicity-hungry “comedian” storming the stage during the final walk felt so gross to me. I didn’t find it all that humorous when Gigi Hadid had to literally put a stop to this woman’s antics. I hate that Virginie Viard’s first ready-to-wear presentation since Karl Lagerfeld’s passing was interrupted by someone so selfish and unfunny.
But enough about her and on to the impeccable Spring-Summer 2020 collection itself. Personally, I loved it. The models sauntered from “roof” to “roof” in elegant, modern, but still very CHANEL looks in classic shades of black, white, blue and red. There were youthful tweed rompers and jumpsuits that I would wear every day of my life if I could. There were classic CHANEL bags imagined in intricate tweed, chains, and pearls. Bows and dainty CCs adorned dresses and sweaters, with many of the looks cinched with belts of varying thickness. And while I don’t think I could pull off the pleated waist denim the way the models did so effortlessly, the striped knit twinset pairing felt fun and fresh for spring, a style hack I’ll be borrowing next season.
And while I didn’t find my perfect CHANEL blazer in this collection, I did add a tweed romper to my never-ending “dream wardrobe” wishlist. How could I not, when they look this good?
