Chanel Fall 2020 Haute Couture Collection

“I was thinking about eccentric girls,” says Virginie Viard of her fall haute couture collection for Chanel. In particular, Viard was remembering Karl Lagerfeld heading off to parties with his sometime muse, the madcap Princess Diane de Beauvau-Craon, who as a teenage debutante got herself an American crewcut to give some punk edge to the pretty but detested pink dress her mother had chosen for her coming-out ball.

“Life with her around is the ideal for me,” Lagerfeld said of de Beauvau-Craon when he spoke with Vogue(“The Country Girl,” June 1990), “because life must never be flat. She gives a light spirit, yet she is deeply spiritual.” After the austerity of the spring couture, inspired by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s schoolgirl uniforms at the Aubazine convent, Viard wanted to swing to quiet opulence for fall in an edited collection of 30 looks.

Because the collection will largely be seen through photography (Mikael Jansson shot the look book, and haute couture clients will also receive a portfolio of more documentary and detail images), Viard was thinking of “things that maybe I would not do in a show—punk hair, fine jewelry.” Those Chanel haute bijoux include yellow diamond lions (Chanel herself was a Leo), and Viard notes that “I adore tiaras!”
