Chanel’s 2021/22 MÉTIERS D’ART Collection Debuts

CHANEL’s latest collection is now available for viewing by the public.

Yesterday, the CHANEL 2021/22 Métiers d’art show took place. The show, by Virginie Viard, occurred in le19M – a building envisioned by CHANEL and located in Paris. The collection was created with the intent to be “metropolitan yet sophisticated.” Some details in the collection, such as embroideries and structure, are an homage to the architecture of le19M. 


Viard says about CHANEL’s imagined building, “It’s a vast, very open space, with a façade adorned with threads of white concrete, a garden, beautiful walkways, and a large gallery where exhibitions will also be held.”


The show began with an ankle-length black button-down dress with two statement pockets adorned in white plaid and beads at the hip. Following the opening look, tweed jackets, matching sets, and a myriad of other clothing styles were featured on the runway in black, white, and various pops of color. The show ended with a white sequined shirt and matching pants, with a black sash tied around the waist and black pant inseams. Accompanying the final look was a black coat with a white interior that the model wore just off the shoulder.

“I wanted each model, drawn by a different illustrator, to represent one of the Maisons d’art and evolve in a little story inspired by a CHANEL icon,” Viard explains. “I wanted to illustrate each House as best as possible, but with a twist.”

For the finale, the models walked behind the white pillars of le19M to reach the runway. Spectators applauded as the models did their final walk, and the show finished with Viard making a brief appearance.

CHANEL ambassador Soo Joo Park, also known as Ether, performed a song at the end of the show after walking the runway from a selection of music curated specifically for the collection. To see the full collection, take a look at the film of the show below.
