Chanel Cruise 2020 showed new collection in Grand Palais. The show staged as a train to the past with transit to the feature. Virginie Viard, new artistic director of Chanel, who tried already bombers and simplified street looks for the Ready-to-wear Fall-Winter 2019-2020 collection, her first collection she had to finish without Karl, now for cruise resort collection she colored classic tweeds of Coco Chanel and “street them up”.
Sneakers…. or how new Chanel generation might call them “kicks” or “chucks”, raincoats, bananas and rucksacks adored by big bows and some pinky flowers. Little New York-ish looks Virginie Viard tried to fit into old fashion chic trains, in style of Orient Express. And of course the installation was very simple – train stations…. saying that Chanel is in transit and hope.
