It is a trend, the collections are presented on the catwalk and in the front row (in the first row). And it is what all international brands do with their chosen characters as ambassadors. That’s why, Chanel she dresses her celebrities with designs that, in addition, we can all copy. The latter is a detail in which Chanel It makes a difference.
The creations that some designers choose to dress the celebrities that they place on the red carpet of their fashion shows and in the first rows, can inspire us and above all make us dream about what they are wearing. The celebrities you choose Chanel, they seem more accessible for us to make our versions with clothes that we already have in our wardrobes. That is the key to a brand that makes the tradition of its designs a value to reformulate each season.
Who does not have a single-breasted waist jacket of their own or inherited from our mother or aunt? Or a wide skirt with a top? Or a short that we usually combine with a shirt with thin straps and accessories depending on the occasion? Or a silly dress that we don’t discard because it brings back nice memories and like Carrie Bradshaw with her packed dressing room from “sex and the city” is it hard for us to give away?
The overall character Chanel It means that, as in few firms, its followers –and also followers– are from all over the world. That is why in the “front row” there are celebrities who are more famous in some latitudes than in others. There was, for example, Calú “Dignity” Rivero which for Asian and even European fans did not fall into the category of celebrity. But there it was as they were, are and will be others who are not as universal as Carlota Casiraghi, Penelope Cruz either Kristen Stewart.
That’s why, Chanel choose celebrities to front row also wear designs that appear in similar versions on the runway. Seeing them in movement different from that of the models, and in different types of silhouettes and in women, who, although they are famous, do not have the grimace that those selected for the catwalk should wear. The following are some of the creations that Virginie Viard proposed for her collection and that she encourages us to create our own interpretations with clothes from our wardrobe and some new ones to add. And it is essential to take into account the accessories to combine.
