CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Spring/Summer 2023 Ready-to-Wear Show

 

 

You guys, it’s not even Christmas, yet the spring 2023 beauty trends are already rolling out and first out of the gate is CHANEL with the Spring/Summer 2023 Ready-to-Wear Show. Inspired by the 1961 movie L’Année Dernière à Marienbad by Alain Resnais, Virginie Viard sent looks down the runway that were the very expression of freedom of movement. I can honestly say that this was the first runway show where every.single.exquisite look 100% took my breath away. But we’re here for the beauty, am I right?

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.

CHANEL · La Pausa de CHANEL Spring-Summer 2022 Collection

 

In the 1920’s, Gabrielle Chanel chose idyllic Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the Côte d’Azur to build her elegant villa, La Pausa — which also serves as inspiration for the Spring-Summer 2022 Collection. All the pieces are imbued with the earthy tones and sparkling light of the French Riviera, and in my honest opinion, this has to be one of CHANEL’s best releases to date … but fair warning: EVERYTHING is limited edition (*crying internally).
