French fashion house Chanel presented its Spring Summer 2024 Haute Couture Collection with a fashion show held on Tuesday, January 23rd, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. At the heart of the collection lies the iconic Chanel button, a symbol of liberation and empowerment for women. Gabrielle Chanel herself revered the button, seeing it as a precious adornment that adds a touch of daring to any ensemble. Now, under Viard’s vision, this emblematic button takes center stage, seamlessly blending the worlds of fashion and dance.
Drawing inspiration from the world of ballet, Viard creates a mesmerizing landscape of delicate fabrics and intricate embellishments. Transparent skirts, flowing dresses, and embellished capes evoke the fluidity and grace of dance movements, while masculine silhouettes juxtapose with feminine details to create a harmonious balance.
I often think about dance, it’s an important theme at Chanel. The House is close to its institutions, to its choreographers and dancers, and we create costumes for the ballet. I have tried to bring together the power and finesse of bodies and clothes in a very ethereal collection, composed of tulle, ruffles, pleats and lace. – Virginie Viard
The color palette, dominated by soft pastels and ethereal whites, pays homage to the Ballets Russes of Léon Bakst and Sergei Diaghilev, infusing the collection with a sense of nostalgia and romance. Vibrant pops of color inject energy and vitality, reminiscent of the dynamic spirit of contemporary dance.
