CHANEL A TWEED FOR A TWEET
Chanel celebrates tweed throughout the event, from the fabric covering the walls, the floor, and the seats, to Virginie Viard’s tweed jacket in the battle of the tweed jackets. A woman wearing a pink tweed jacket paired her leggings fastened with bows and rhinestone-covered shoes with a soft white dog in the peoples.
Viard’s color palette is influenced by images of the River Tweed in Scotland shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. She used the full gamut of shades, from psychedelic pinks, purples and greens, to earthy tones fit for country walks at Balmoral Castle.
There’s an English spirit running through the collection, from ‘Spencer’ who drew on images of Coco Chanel wearing the duke’s oversize tweed jackets.
