On the morning of June 7th, some hours before the CHANEL 2021/22 Métiers d’Art show, approximately 240 students attended a masterclass by Bruno Pavlovsky – President of CHANEL Fashion & President of CHANEL SAS. Moderated by Tyler Brûlé (Chairman and Editorial Director of Monocle magazine), the discussion was held at the Camera di Commercio, located on one of the banks of the River Arno.

Never before since the epidemic has the House held an abroad, overnight runway in Florence’s historical railway station of Stazione Leopolda. The station was expected to be the backdrop for 1000 guests from 7 pm.

The 2021/2022 looks were designed under the leadership of Virginie Viard, who was Karl Lagerfeld’s faithful long-term colleague and assistant. Karl Lagerfeld once said that Viard was his right arm and left arm.

“Very metropolitan yet sophisticated.” Virginie Viard commented. The collection was of heritage tweed pieces and knitwear reimagined with intricate embellishments. Low-slung denim, drop-waist skirts, and relaxed outerwear were a tribute to effortless Parisian style, and the iconic double C logo was emblazoned onto cardigans. Accessories were kept refined and glamorous with jewelry presented in oversized diamantés and the House’s classic quilting peppered throughout.

Tight-fitting bodices with fuller skirts, bulky and heavy layers, and enameled buttons were stylistic pieces that embodied elements inspired by the Renaissance period. The collection specifically included elements from Renaissance royalty, as models were draped with purple silk and layers of chunky gold, silver, and pearl necklaces.

Relaxed French beauty was embellished in a fresh base, muted lips and a graphic cat-eye liner with peach tones blended up towards neatly brushed eyebrows. Compared to the past collection, hair was lofi and featured undone waves and cross-grain ribbons. Hair makeup were made synonymous with Chanel’s house codes: secured to the left-hand side of the model’s head.
