Hi everyone, welcome back to Aurora’s Fashion and Lifestyle. Finished up the last series, starting from this week, I will provide a new series on World-Class fashion brands or fashion shows critics. This week, I will offer reviews on one of my favorite brand’s latest fashion show. The brand is Chanel.
Chanel – Vincent Van Gogh of Fashion
I was fascinated by Chanel logo since I was ten or twelve. I start more and more enjoying Chanel’s concepts and designs. All happened from nowhere. However, I remember that I was buying fashion magazines since I was ten from bus stops, bookstores on my way home, and grocery stores. I developed my fashion sense since then by looking through all designs in various tastes and styles. Hopefully, you will enjoy my fashion critics on these world-class, extraordinary, and luxury fashion brands.

Chanel with Karl Lagerfeld
After Karl Lagerfeld passed away in February this year, Fashion World lost a prestigious fashion designer. Recently, I came across a documentary done by Netflix called 7 Days Out Karl Lagerfeld. Karl was strict and precise about every aspect of the fashion show. Some unbeatable fashion shows created by Karl are Couture autumn/winter 2017, which he recreated Eiffel Tower with a center-opened glass roof, Couture autumn/winter 2015, which was in a casino setting, and Fall‑Winter 2017/18 Ready‑to‑Wear show, with a rocket in the middle of the catwalk. He was not just trying to provide an amazing show to the audiences but also take them out from fashion show with incredible settings and environments.

Who Is Virginie Viard?
Virginie Viard takes over Chanel this year. It seems like we never heard of this name before. However, we have seen her many times in Chanel fashion shows also she working at the backstages. Virginie has been working with Karl for more than 30 years. She was passionate about fashion, and her family had some sort of connection with fashion. She enjoyed making the costume for the early years. She started in Chanel as an intern at haute couture embroidery department, becoming a trusted protege of Karl. If you don’t see them together, they must be on the phone calling each other. Therefore, from all the points, we call tell Virginie is a major role for Karl and Chanel in the last 30 years.
Chanel Cruise 2019/20 Review
The first fashion show led by Virginie Viard was on May 2019, and it was hosted in The Grand Palais in Paris. I definitely can tell that it tried to target younger generations. Compared to previous years, there were more accessories on each model. The designs of these accessories are more modern and creative. The whole collection’s idea came from the train station from the late 20th century. It has a fictional train station as a catwalk. When you first walked inside of the Grand Palais, a scene mimics Le Train Bleu showed in front of you. (shown below) I will say the setting is pretty fancy and also chic. All models makeup and hairstyles have recreated the styles in the 1970s. Some of the models with black lipstick color. All the clothing are powerful with a sense of ultra-feminine. The collections include so many bold and youthful colors, which could be hard to handle in one show. However, Virginie made it happened. From this show, we can tell Virginie, the artistic director, tries to convey that Chanel will learn and keep some amazing parts from the past and look forward to the future.

Overall, I selected a few pieces I preferred from the whole collection. I enjoyed most of the clothing and accessories. Few items standing out are list below:
- Cashmere jacket with white oversized shirt & Cashmere cardigan dress with white bow in front of it
- Colorful shoulder cross bag
- I also like the matching colors of the entire outfit
- The color could be a popular color for next year, a sense of vitality
- big fun of this pattern
