Haute Couture Chanel 2022: The Camelia Embroidered, Sumptuous Majesty

For this Chanel 2022 Haute Couture collection, Virginie Viard introduced the avant-garde so close to Coco Chanel… Avant-garde pieces that inspire essentialist pieces, enhanced by the Chanel Art Crafts.

The Chanel Parade started with an unexpected performance, that of Charlotte Casiraghi on the podium on a superb steed. The idea for the show set started with a long-standing desire to work with Xavier Veilhan. His references to constructivism remind me of those of Karl Lagerfeld. I love this correspondence of mind between us, now and through time. In addition to creating the show’s decor in reference to the avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s, Xavier wanted to work with Charlotte Casiraghi. Her artistic universe is crossed by horses and Charlotte is an outstanding rider» details Virginie Viard.

And as for couture inspirations, the current artistic director of Chanel has brought times and fashions together, in a freedom of tone that she considers herself the keystone of Chanel couture.

“I felt very free… These geometric shapes gave me a desire for contrasts, a great lightness and a lot of freshness: aerial dresses, floating, as if suspended. Lots of ruffles, fringes, macramé, bright lace, iridescent tweeds, colorful jewelry buttons.”

We thus found many of the iconic codes of the house, magnified here and there by the genius of the Chanel Crafts. There was tweed, treated in a more couture-casual appearance than usual. But above all a key piece that sublimated the fetish flower of Coco Chanel, the camelia.

And it is again Virginie Viard who describes it best… “One of the key pieces is a dress entirely embroidered by Lesage de camélias constructivistes in black, white and coral beads, worn with a small black jacket.” A collection rich in references, which showed Chanel classicism in majesty!
