Closely fitted at the waist, tweed jackets take on a modern look: with their puffy shoulders and sleeves they resemble bomber jackets, reflecting the relaxed spirit of the collection. Dotted with diamond motifs or hazy zigzags, they feature buttons in the tones of vellum and other fine printing papers.
Lightness runs through the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection and is reflected in the choice of fabrics — pleated georgette, layered chiffon, draped organza — and in the full volumes, set off with a belt or a knotted bow. Transparent effects heighten the impression of fluidity.
The House ambassadors and friends of the House were invited to the Grand Palais in Paris to discover the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection.
Sharp, striking necklines enhance the models' elegant carriage of the head, lengthening their silhouette. Low-cut or topping a tweed jacket or a sheath dress, like a bandeau or triangular in shape, they reveal the neck and shoulders and enhance the feminine look.
Contrasting effects enhance the graphic lines in the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection. Splashes of white in collars or shirt cuffs, pocket flaps and belts, stand out against long draped black velvet looks, echoing CHANEL's two-tone variations. Juxtapositions in plum shades create luminous new combinations.
Tweed, one of CHANEL's signature fabrics, takes on a new flowing silhouette in the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection. Wrapped and draped fluidly, sometimes with a slightly iridescent sheen, it translates into long belted dress coats enhanced with ruff collars. A soft and fluid bustier dress comes in a coral orange check.
