CHANEL BY VIRGINIE VIARD SPRING SUMMER 2021 DURING THE HAUTE COUTURE PARIS FASHION WEEK
It was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding. Beneath a bright-blue winter sky, under the dome of the Grand Palais, Chanel hosted an intimate wedding-themed presentation in the round, complete with arbors of wildflowers, fairy lights and a bride on a white horse. “I knew we couldn’t organise a big show, so I came up with the idea of a small cortege, like a family celebration,” creative director Virginie Viard offered in her notes. Vogue was invited behind the scenes of the production, which this season was closed to the public in keeping with Covid-19 precautions.
