Karl Lagerfeld is missed, but not the spectacular assemblies in which Chanel's runways are usually converted. This time Virginie Viard has moved us to a library to present the first Haute Couture collection without Karl Lagerfeld. The garments of Chanel's Autumn-Winter season 2019/2020 have been infected by the intellectuality of the books that surrounded them.
As in the parade of the Chanel cruise collection, Virginie has feminized Chanel's proposals with more color, more dresses with flight and much more romanticism.
The best has been the 3D flowers decorating jackets to get more volume in a very delicate way.
There are also some Night dresses Really beautiful that will delight the celebrities in the big red carpets.
Virginie has also managed to work on tweed with subtlety incorporating it to modern and current designs.
The worst that some proposals of dresses with tulle can remember Dior at times and Chanel should have enough of an entity to not have to look like anyone.
The truth is that there are more and more interesting outlets in Chanel and that little by little the new designer is getting collections with personality, and doing it after Karl Lagerfeld is a challenge not available to anyone.
