Virginie Viard presented Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection at the Grand Palais Éphémère during Paris Fashion Week on October 4, inviting brand muses Kristen Stewart and Jennie of Blackpink to sit front row. It wasn’t a surprise to see Stewart in attendance — the 32-year-old “Spencer” actor is almost always there for seasonal debuts. She also stars in the French fashion house’s new black and white film by Ines & Vinoodhwhich focuses on revamping identity and embodies some of the dark cinematic vibes of Viard’s latest collection.
Fans of Stewart and Jennie, 26, were thrilled to see the duo reconnect ahead of the show in a video clip circulating on the Internet. Stylized by Tara Swennen, Stewart marked the moment in a striped Chanel logo sweater, tweed miniskirt, patent combat boots and chain-link jewelry, channeling her signature grunge glam aesthetic. Jennie, meanwhile, embraced bright, spring-like colors like lilac and robin-egg blue. The singer dressed head-to-toe in Chanel Resort 2023, including a one-shoulder terry dress, matching cardigan, black knee-high boots, a pearl-encrusted box clutch and a single earring. floral pearl ear. The finishing touch to her ensemble? A multicolored “CC” manicure. Other celebrity guests included Naomi Campbell, Camila Morrone and Charlotte Casiraghi. Featuring a mix of prints and textures – from gingham to the brand’s signature tweed – the collection offered several standout looks. Sequined briefs with hidden pockets and wispy pink feathers at the hem seemed like a contender for your next black tie event. In contrast, echoes of the dark-academia trend were prominent in the collection, thanks to Mary Janes attached to fishnet socks at varying heights. Other standout design details included miniature bows, jeweled drop earrings, and sheer elements.
On the footwear front, Viard sent models down the catwalk wearing the new crystallized crystal toe pumps that shimmered with every step, in addition to the aforementioned low-top pumps. Feather-embellished dresses, metallic fabric finishes and rhinestone jewelry complete the designer’s vision. Overall, the collection conveyed a playful elegance, inspiring a sense of romance and whimsy for the New Year.
