Chanel was held its spring-summer 2021 show at the Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées during  Paris Fashion Week spelled the brand’s name in giant letters inspired by the iconic Hollywood iconic landmark in the Santa Monica mountains California.

Chanel collection is a celebration of the film stars who have inspired the label “ I was thinking about actresses at the photocall, on the red carpet, that moment when they’re being called to by the photographers: their faces a little distracted, their attitude a little out of sync with the outfits they’re wearing, This collection is a tribute to the muses of the House.

Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld dressed so many actresses in films and in real life. I was thinking about them who make us dream so much. But without wanting to replicate. Without falling into a vintage citation. I wanted it to be very joyful, colorful, and very vibrant too.” The creative director Virginie Viard

There was a sense of youthful ease where this feeling permeated the collection by adding new colorways of bright pops of pink, red, and blue, and mini accessories by reminding us that big things can come in small chic packages.

The collection’s various sequined pieces and mini dresses embodied this idea and kept the collection’s spirit high where the tops were cropped, sweatshirts were emblazoned with logo prints and the iconic tweed suit was transformed into shorts or mini dresses.

There were pink denim pedal pushers and high-waisted wide-leg jeans and the Bermuda shorts and pale pinks are extensively used of neon imagery inspired by the 90s looks, besides the classic edgy-feminine spirit to the brand’s DNA were present by the classic tweed from the house.
