CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Fall-Winter 2021/22 Haute Couture


It seemed only fitting that CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture show was held at the Palais Galleria, City of Paris Fashion Museum, especially considering that paintings from the Belle Époque (19th century) were the inspiration behind the collection, in particular works from two female artists — Berthe Morisot and Marie Laurencin. Interestingly, both makeup and hair had a strong edge, an effect that toned down the softness of the pieces and gave the looks an overall rock & roll vibe which I personally found so fresh and, well … cool.

And the bride wore … blush


CHANEL’s Haute Couture shows never fail to take my breath away and the exquisite craftsmanship of the pieces make them basically museum-worthy. For this particular show, I loved how the rocker makeup & punk-ish hair paired with the ethereal fashion, but if there’s one thing I’d change, that would be the nail polish shade. Don’t get me wrong, Ballerina is still one of my favourite polishes ever but I think it’s time that CHANEL treat us to something a bit more outrageous, as only this Maison can.
