First Virginie Viard’s Haute Couture collection show at the Grand Palais in Paris and it is like a thunder, but very polite and quite. As much as the big revolution taking place in the Maison, relentless but silent. No sensationalism, neither for the collection itself that, instead of looking at mundane life and huge events, imagines woman in her private moment. At home, inside her library, when limelight are gone and she can relax, wear clothes that make her feel comfortable and do what she like best.

Reading indeed, it’s a passione among others Viard shared with Lagerfeld, who is once again homaged in the show with the big circular library that serves as background. A difference is although visible: it’s no more Karl Lagerfeld, it is Chanel. The brand takes the best parts of who was one of the biggest art director in the history of fashion, but it is able to go on by itself.

In the first part of the collection we find long outerwear, silky on body. They then leave space to colour block suits, that shape the female body, with strict waistline and very wide shoulders. Final gowns are extremely elegant and very simple: black velvet, wide skirts with riffled shirts, some transparence on sleeves. Straight to the bride, Vittoria Ceretti, who wear light pink satin trousers and a flounced robe. They all wear reading glasses and low chignon: chic and straight.
