CHANEL Spring Summer 2022 RTW Collection

Inspired by the magic of fashion seen through the photographer’s lens, the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear show evokes the heightened emotions and memories of the raised runways of the 1980s surrounded by photographers and flashbulbs. Romantic with a touch of mystery, the collection balances the graphic purity of black and white, playful summer stripes, and the dark whimsy of a butterfly’s wings on black chiffon.

Styles go from classic black and white, tweed dresses in pink, elegant bathing suits, chains and pearls, just as we love CHANEL.

“It’s a magical object (walking about the camera) and a sexy gesture, which evokes so many memories,” recalls Viard in the show notes. “I used to love the sound of flashbulbs going off at the shows in the eighties when the models were on a raised runway. I wanted to recapture that emotion.” And so she did.

“I always like to have something romantic,” describes Viard. “A touch of mystery.”
