Snowy vistas and an alpine ambience resulting in an alluring winter scenery of luxurious nonchalance. The notorious duo Inez & Vinoodh imagined the ideal version of a winter getaway and staged models Mica Argañaraz, Louise de Chevigny, Vivienne Rohner and Rianne van Rompaey among wooden chalets, majestic peaks and ski slopes for a photo session that evokes the cinematic beauty of the cold season lifestyle. The latest CHANEL campaign is a tribute to the subtle stylistic expressions of high life when the temperature falls, and it is a magnificent one.
Logo-embroidered jeans, elegant knitwear and a quilted jumpsuit give a whole new meaning to casual, by transforming it into a low-key interpretation of sumptuous. The faux fur jackets and boots -a nod to sustainability- create a cozy sensation, while the shearling two-tone coats, the black iridescent tweed jacket and the transparent georgette skirt channel the brand’s codes in a unique and contemporary way. A dark pink waist-revealing tweed ensemble, the wide-leg velvet trousers and the lace bodysuit combined with accessories like the 11.12 bag, the sautoir necklaces and the jeweled belt showcase Virginie Viard’s playful approach to femininity: no rules apply to a woman who is ready to embrace her personal style and adjust it to her many needs.
Mixed materials and contrasting colors, along with a spirit that infuses the CHANEL archetypes with a provocative flair initiate us into the house’s new era. Virginie Viard envisions a worldly, powerful woman who feels comfortable in her own skin and faces every challenge with the certainty of her abilities.
The pandemic might not be over yet, but Tom Ford is clearly walking on a creative path that evokes a sense of freedom, extroversion and outgoingness. The 2022 RTW collection is a celebration of life and sociability, a reminder that the real world is out there and all we have to do in order to embrace it is style ourselves up and go for it.
Sequined racerback tanks, basketball shorts and track pants served as major athleisure signifiers, infused with an ‘80s glam feeling as expressed by various vivid colors like fuschia, orange, acid green and pool blue, the baggy or exaggerated silhouettes, the saturated tones and the glossy aesthetics of the garments. Asymmetrical zippers, velvet jackets and spray-painted leather give the collection the eclectic variety it needs to resonate with the demanding fashion crowd while joggers and bra tops, silk and metallics, oversized cardigans, thick heels and heavy necklaces attest to a brilliant mixture of sexiness and playfulness. Tom Ford employs his signature fits and textures, and with the help of his iconic, longtime collaborator Carine Roitfeld he creates a familiarly sleek universe filled with vibrance and shimmering allure.
Instagrammers and ‘90s lovers, disco aficionados and streetwear buffs, practically everyone has something to adore in the new Tom Ford collection, whose blend of functionality, retro value and modern coolness is truly exquisite.
