A terrace overlooking the sea, a breathtaking view, a dip where the water is bluer. A walk on the beach, the calm, maybe (even) the boredom, the light-heartedness of the coming summer. And the desire to choose looks carefully, with that awareness and thoughtfulness that always belonged to Miss Gabrielle. It is in the Principality of Monaco, precisely at the Beach Hotel, near what was once the villa of the former creative director of Chanel Karl Lagerfeld, that the current artistic mind of the maison – Virginie Viard – takes us to present his Chanel Cruise fashion 2022 2023 collection. A place deliberately chosen to pay homage to the memory of the unforgettable Kaiser of fashion, but above all to celebrate the lasting bond with the Monegasque royal family. In this context with a unique atmosphere, Chanel dresses, which we would not find it hard to imagine (already) in the Summer 2022 fashion wardrobelet it be to triumph an elegance that mirrors the codes of the label: casual and uninhibited, emancipated, feminine and characterized by a strong personality like the one that characterized the inspiration of the founder Coco Chanel.
Chanel Cuise fashion 2022 2023: the teaser of Sofia and Roman Coppola
It was the video teaser directed by Sofia and Roman Coppola that offered us a preview of La Vigie, the villa it once was buen retiro Karl Lagerfeld’s summer from the early 1980s to the early 2000s. And it is here that, in 2019, Charlotte Casiraghi – who was like a daughter for Karl – got married. A location that had been the subject of gossip ever since the house announced that the Chanel Cruise 2022 2023 fashion show would be held in Principauté de Monaco. “By choosing to present the Cruise 2023 collection in Monaco – explained the maison – Virginie Viard strengthens and prolongs the link between Chanel and the principality. This relationship is perfectly embodied by Charlotte Casiraghi, ambassador and spokesperson of the fashion house since 2021, president and founder of Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco and patroness of the Jumping International of Monte-Carlo ”. Dressed in a total denim look by Chanel, Charlotte Casiraghi was a guest at the show along with other stars dear to the fashion houses, such as Kristen Stewart (who wore Chanel in her new film Spencer) and Tilda Swinton.
So Sofia and Roman Coppola have the task of interpreting this bond in the video teaser, whose protagonists are the actress and ambassador of the fashion house Lyna Khoudri together with the models Blesnya Minher, HyunJi Shin, Mariam de Vinzelle and Vivienne Rohner. The photographs, on the other hand, are the work of Melodie McDaniel, who immortalized the female quintet in moments of frivolous seriousness: from circuits for racing cars to swimming in the pool, from boat tours to the choice of put in the bedroom.
Chanel Cuise fashion 2022 2023: the clothes of the fashion show
Just like we were guests at La Vigie, the creative director Virginie Viard opens the doors of the Chanel Cruise fashion 2022 2023 wardrobe: what clothes would we like to wear or take with us on vacation? References to the Monegasque spirit and lifestyle pervade the collection in its entirety. Even the checked pattern – especially the black and white checkered pattern – acquires a new value which, from a pure geometric pattern, now transports us to the racing tracks where the checkered flags invite the drivers to slow down. Virginie Viard appropriates it, making the woman no longer a mere spectator of racing races but an active protagonist: she takes to the track with dresses in which flags become repeated all-over motifs, with cardigans and swimsuits in which the checked in black & white is the leitmotif. Even the jumpsuit suits are borrowed from the world of motors to become an essential item of the women’s wardrobe.
“There is a sporty atmosphere – explains Virginie Viard, – but not only that. There are also many tweed jumpsuits (signature fabric of the maison and heritage of the brand, ed) or silk, slightly federated. Sequins and flowers give shape to the embroidered plastrons that adorn long striped shirtdresses with high white collars – a reference to Karl (which made it an identity element of his style, ed), – a midnight blue dress with sequins or top with a wide neckline on the back, worn over wide-cut trousers “. Further sporting references can be found in the bags: the shape recalls that of tennis rackets, ready to be taken on the court. The black satin shoes, on the other hand, have a silhouette reminiscent of ballet shoes. Also there palette chromatica becomes the spokesperson for this atmosphere: from white to black, passing through red, the metallic textures of gold and silver, blue and candy pink.
Inevitable, among the Chanel Cruise fashion 2022 2023 clothes, are the jackets: the rounded collars are the highest common denominator, the black and white checkered pattern is taken up on the hems of the pockets. Tweed remains the main fabric, especially in the mustard yellow variant (we note the color: it is already trendy), but Virginie Viard also prefers leather with a shiny effect. And for the evening? A double-breasted coat with a lapel collar, entirely studded with midnight blue sequins and worn with an aquamarine belt at the waist to generate a chromatic contrast.
Speaking of Chanel Cruise fashion 2022 2023 clothes, there is one that particularly inspired Virginie Viard, and it is the one that Caroline of Monaco wore when they first met: “The first time I saw Carolina was on the beach in Monaco. She wore a black bandaged dress, with impalpable tights and high heels “. And here on the catwalk a bandeau dress that wraps and encircles the silhouette, worn just as Carolina would have worn it (still) today.
In addition to the homage to the Monegasque family, the Chanel Cruise 2022 2023 fashion collection can only remember Karl Lagerfeld. The tribute passes through two noble sentiments: affection and esteem. “For me – explains the creative director Chanel, – Monaco is all a matter of feelings. It’s Karl, Carolina, Charlotte. From the first moment, I knew that one day I would have a fashion show here, more precisely at the Beach Hotel. It was Karl who dreamed of it. From this magnificent location, you can see the villa, La Vigie. I will never forget the moments spent there: the terraces and balconies, the large umbrellas, the flower baskets. Beauty everywhere “.
