CHANEL Backstage Beauty · Fall-Winter 2022/23 Ready To Wear

 

Turning a Scottish classic into a luxury icon, CHANEL’s recent Fall-Winter 2022/23 Ready-to-Wear Collection paid tribute to all things tweed — even the venue was swathed in the fabric. Gorgeous accessories and runway pieces aside, the beauty look was minimal yet so fresh, with cheeks looking flushed with colour as though kissed by a walk through the moors. Groomed brows, a ‘just-bitten’ look to lips, and neutral nails, the eyes were loaded up with mascara (but not overly clumpy) to complete the look, and I’m living for the effortlessly cool effect. Pretty sure this will be my go-to from now on.

I say that this is definitely a great way to start the year from this luxury brand.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Spring/Summer 2022 Haute Couture

 

For the recent CHANEL Spring/Summer 2022 Haute Couture Collection, Virginie Viard invited contemporary artist Xavier Veilhan to help stage the show; part landscape, part garden and part open theatre, the setting also integrated seating for guests in the catwalk, making for a truly immersive experience. Of course, it wouldn’t be a CHANEL show without something spectacular, and that came in the form of Charlotte Casiraghi — daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, grand-daughter of Grace Kelly — who opened the show on horseback. Happily, the horse was well trained enough to not leave any ‘surprises’ along the way …
