What Would I Wear to a Chanel SS2023 Fashion Show Today in Paris FW
Fashion weeks are in full swing and this year I am taking part in those fashion fantacies by creating looks I would wear to the shows of my favorite designers, if I was invited.
Today, 4th of October at half past ten, a long waited Chanel SS2023 fashion show is about to start in Paris and I am ever so excited to see what Virginie Viard, the creative director of the House, has been planning for. But first, what to wear? Well, you can never go wrong with a little black dress.
ENDURING ELEGANCE FOR
THE MODERN AGE
Impecable style from an iconic woman.
Chanel forms quite a house of icons: Gabrielle herself and the late visonary Karl Lagerfelt both shaped the house into a fashion empire we know today. But after decades of firm rule under Lagerfelt's genius, power has been shifted back to a woman creative. Virginie Viard, who has been directing Chanel since 2019, has given the House a cool, effortless elegance that is somehow soft but potent. The Chanel of now feels fresh and, personally, I love it.
THE CHANEL SS2023
For spring and summer 2023 Chanel gave cinematic glamour and explored a woman's freedom of movement and expression. The show consisted of many gorgeous looks but my personal favorites where those classic tweed suits in pastel colors and decorated with feathers.
