CHANEL Debuts 22/23 Métiers d’art Collection in Dakar

CHANEL presented an impressive and invigorating sixty-two look collection for their 2022/23 Métiers d’art presentation. Flowing tweed pantalones, geometric shapes, an abundance of color, sequins, lace, fitted jackets and coats and seventies silhouettes riddled the runway. Hi-lo skirts and dresses, floral motifs and platform shoes also made appearances as models traipsed down the former Palais de Justin in Dakar.

The pop- soul-funk-disco-punk decade with its fascinating freedom, symbolised by an explosion of energy, is embodied by a jubilant woman. In Virginie Viard’s mind, evoking the 1970s is like asking everything that generates their pulse to bring rhythm into our lives today. 

The choice to bring the show to Dakar is a buzz-worthy move, as this marks the first ever high end fashion house to show in South Africa. To celebrate, CHANEL presented a three-day program December 5th-7th for a bevy of industry lovers, editors, students and journalists to enjoy the collection. An accompanying exhibit will be shown in. January 2023 at la Galerie du 19M.

Artistic Director Virginie Viard continues her ambitious path in her vision to expand the house into the modern world with collaboration and contribution from creatives from around the world. “[] her modus operandi has remained the same: meeting, dreaming, and building together, with others.”
