Chanel's haute couture cowgirls parade in a graphic setting in the Bois de Boulogne


Chanel's artistic director, Virginie Viard, unveiled a fall-winter 2023/2024 haute couture collection on Tuesday that combines comfort, refinement and an ode to heritage.

It is rare that Chanel declines a parade theme from one season to another.

But we have to believe that the artistic director Virginie Viard takes a liking to the equestrian show.

“I am part of a continuity, she indicates in her note of intent, while leaving room for experimentation”.

For this, it is his collective of muse artists who takes over.

Starting with Xavier Veilhan, to whom she entrusted the scenography of the premises, located at the Étrier de Paris, equestrian center in the Bois de Boulogne.

The contemporary artist, who had already worked with Chanel during his last haute couture show, has here mixed his famous references to the 1920s and 1930s, as well as a nod to geometric aesthetics.

He imagined a track that crosses the merry-go-round,

with certain wooden elements from the previous fashion show.

A setting in the middle of which we could see Keira Knightley, Sigourney Weaver, Marion Cotillard or even Caroline de Maigret.

On the catwalk, the proposal is crystal clear: the essential house tweed invites itself on a cowgirl look.

Virginie Viard indicates that in this collection, “we find suits, long dresses as Mademoiselle Chanel designed them in the 1930s, close to the body, even if they are quite shouldered here, and pleated dresses, in particular the wedding dress.

Lace too, encrusted, reworked, which is not embroidered but repainted.

The palette consists of bright green, khaki, beige, pink, lots of black and silver.

Everything is worn with a pair of boots, cowboy style, and sometimes even with a cowboy hat, itself in tweed.

We guess the impressive work of the embroidery workshops, with metallic floral prints,

bohemian bride

Finally, to close this haute couture show, the bride of course.

This is embodied by Jill Kortleve, the Dutch model whose ascent is unstoppable, who is now in all Chanel fashion shows.

Here, she is wearing a strapless white dress with a tulle petticoat, warmed up with an equally white shawl embroidered with camellias, Chanel's emblematic flower.

A silhouette that invites you to say yes, of course.

In total relaxation.
