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.

The Haute Couture Collection was very much inspired by the 20s — but revisited via the 80s, and the makeup kept up with the theme. The focal point in this look were the eyes which were loaded up on liner — both precisely applied & deconstructed, a nod to flapper girl sultriness. Soft pops of colour on cheeks provided a healthy flush, while lips wore a muted red stain. Nails stayed neutral with CHANEL’s iconic Ballerina, the better to not compete with everything else going on — and I’m not mad about it, as this neutral is one I turn to over and over again. Skin, as always, was flawless and very natural-looking.


Skin was prepped with Hydra Beauty Micro Sérum & Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream

A study in white aka: looks from the collection I’m basically obsessed with

I have no words: the details, the length, the utter elegance & modernity … le sigh


And the bride wore … the most elegantly simple gown
