Chanel Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Paris Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear. RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® Collections. RUNWAY NOW / RUNWAY NEW
“A very simple, very pure momentum. Romanticism but without any flourishes. Emotions but without any frills,” explains Virginie Viard. “Movement, air… For the runway show, no frame. I don’t like framing.” Freedom, energy, desire for the absolute. Gabrielle Chanel – always – whose racehorse was called ‘Romantica’, the film Les Biches by Chabrol for his Parisiennes who are as feminine as they are amazones, and a photo of Karl Lagerfeld wearing a striped suit with riding boots.
For this CHANEL Fall-Winter 2020/21 Ready-to-Wear collection, “almost no dresses, just casaques (jockey silks). Jodhpurs that open over seven-league boots, a nod to those belonging to Karl. For the first time there are press studs on the suits for a more lively gesture,” continues Virginie Viard. Lots of black and white. Just a few touches of pale green and the emblematic pink of the House. A softness. An outline, punctured with imposing jewellery.

PS. Note from Editors of RUNWAY MAGAZINE: “Text of press-release of CHANEL presented here is not corrected or modified. It’s an official text. All very noticeable grammar errors perhaps should be considered as a concept. Concerning gallery of the looks. Some of the images are repeated 2 or 3 times. Usually one image presents one look. Apparently according to new concept of CHANEL one photo presents total view. It is total guess, but repeated images should be considered as look 1, look 2, look 3, and should be viewed and understood from right to left. Perhaps the model in the middle should be viewed and the other models, which might appear on the image should be ignored. RUNWAY MAGAZINE is not responsible for any inconvenience this preview of the collection and press-release might cause.”
