On the second day of Paris Spring 2020 Haute Couture, a brightly-lit cloister garden set on the nave of the Grand Palais gave way to Virginie Viard’s latest iterations, each enlisting pillars of pure modernity across light and delicate constructions. The power of sweeping skirts balanced the elegant austerity of detailed embroidery and intricate lace, while embellished collars and encapsulating matching sets showcased the legendary legacy of the French fashion house. As each model made their way down the runway, tasteful plays of transparency and gracefully light silhouettes welcomed an evidently liberated couture collection. Closing out the show, a wedding dress in crêpe georgette, brought to life with a veil embroidered with branches of wisteria, illustrated the romantic inspiration found across Viard’s entire repertoire of work. A statement of fashion’s next-generation, Chanel’s Spring 2020 Haute Couture show proved the mason’s chic superiority.
