It’s one thing to see a collection on the runway – surrounded by legacy, perfection, VIPs, and sets that are overwhelming in both scale and scope – and quite another to wear it yourself. Chanel, having dominated the upper echelons of high fashion for decades, creates the kind of wardrobes that bring fashion fantasy to life. In Chanel, you’re your best self – free, individuated, noticeable.
For Fall/Winter 2019, we see the lightness of spirit that Virginie Viard brings to the storied house for the first time. Her outlook is decidedly enticing and gamine. This mood comes alive in Savoir Flair’s exclusive shoot with Chanel, which took place on the streets of Paris, shot around Jardin du Palais Royal. In the video, above, model Ashanti Hildreth is the embodiment of pure joy, of living life to the fullest, of seizing the moment.
Shot by the talented duo Vivienne Balla and Tamas Sabo, the Chanel ‘Coco Neige’ ski line and Fall/Winter 2019 collection provide more than just chic outfits and enticing accessories – like the new ‘Chanel 19’ handbag – for cooler months. They provide ease of movement, flashes of glamour and, most importantly, an assured sense of self – as evidenced by the closer look into Chanel’s latest, below.
