Chanel Women Fall Winter 2024 Paris

Back in 1912, the legendary Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel unveiled her boutique in the delightful coastal town of Deauville. Here, she introduced her cutting-edge hat designs and unisex ready-to-wear collections to the world. Deauville, also dubbed the “Parisian Riviera,” has been a favored destination for the city’s elite for generations, thanks to its immaculate beaches and breathtaking cotton-candy sunsets. This picturesque setting was immortalized in the 1966 film A Man and a Woman, starring the iconic Anouk Aimée. Fast forward to today, where this cinematic masterpiece inspired a short film directed by Inez and Vinoodh for the latest Chanel fashion show. Featuring the talented Penélope Cruz and Brad Pitt as doomed lovers, the film set the tone for a runway show infused with coziness and masculine charm.

Chanel’s latest show was a dreamy escape, with creative director Virginie Viard channeling the glamour of the 1920s and the carefree vibes of the beach. The runway, designed to mimic a boardwalk, was bathed in the changing hues of a sunset at Deauville, transitioning from soft pinks to vibrant oranges and cool blues. The collection itself took inspiration from nautical themes, featuring classic tweed peacoats and sailor-style sweaters. Luxurious cardigan sets and warm wool jumpsuits were showcased alongside practical handbags and chic suede boots lined with cozy shearling. The overall look was effortlessly chic, with tailored jackets and skirts paired with casual jeans for a modern take on winter dressing, reminiscent of style icon Jane Birkin.
