Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2020 presentation, held inside the Grand Palais, featured a set replicating the rooftops of Paris.
Models walked a runway of zinc roofing, surrounding chimney pots and windows that opened up to the sky, wearing looks that held an air of youthful liberty. This season, silhouettes were light and fluid, a balance between simplicity and volume.
Flounced collars, ruffles, and prominent sleeves adorned classic styles like a white dress belted at the waist and a take on the tweed suit reimagined as a dress with a two-tiered skirt. Looks were accompanied with t-strap sandals or flats that fastened around the ankle, and some models sported matching handbags or little hats adorned with flowers.
Pieces we’re still thinking about include the voluminous denim jumpsuit with the white ruffles and the black and white gown with the tuxedo bib top, puffed sleeves, and bow-embellished waistband.
