The CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 collection by Virginie Viard is inspired by Jean Cocteau’s film Testament of Orpheus(1960). The filming spot is also the place of this catwalk — the Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence. The hand-drawn white starry pattern also comes from Jean Cocteau, the friend of brand founder Coco Chanel. And the preview poster is exactly the letter from Cocteau to Coco.
Evoking the simplicity, precision and poetry of Jean Cocteau’s film Testament of Orpheus, the CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 collection by Virginie Viard is suffused with the extreme modernity of black and white. They both love the variation of light, and color contrast is the best presentation way. Bright white and profound black therefore become the main tone of this season. The fresh white lapel and white woven edges of black tweed jacket extremely present the thematic color.
Elegant ankle-length dress interprets the leisure and romance of the Cruise. The combination with cropped outerwear or waistband shows the versatility and proper wrapped feel, which can better reveal the layered effect.
With the popularity of traditional handicraft, the CHANEL Cruise collection presents crochet cape item. Different stitching provides various textures, which symbolize the uniqueness of Chanel girls.
