Art directors and sisters Sylvia and Julia Haghjoo photographed the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2019 collection for BAZAAR.com today. The show took place in Paris at the Grand Palais, where Karl Lagerfeld staged his collections for many seasons. His successor at Chanel, creative director Virginie Viard, transformed the venue into a cozy yet massive library setting with over 350,000 books inspired by Coco Chanel’s personal library.
Viard’s second collection (and debut couture show) for the French fashion house was a more pared down, intimate affair compared to Karl’s exuberant Chanel productions in the past. Her softer touch was evident in the rounded shoulders, chiffon dresses, and fluid pants that paraded down the runway.
The collection also made heavy use of sequined embroideries and feather appliqués from the brand’s couture ateliers. An array of bright, punchy colors were interspersed throughout, as seen in a fuchsia jacket and minidress as well as an orange skirt suit. Models walked out in ruched halter dresses, elongated floor-length coats, and classic tweed jackets.
Sylvia and Julia’s favorite picks were the iconic tweed looks, the acid-colored dresses, and the flat shoes. Sound director Michel Gaubert took charge of the music selection, which was the perfect soundtrack for the serene set.
