Virginie Viard pays tribute to predecessors Chanel, Lagerfeld

World | 3 Jul 2019 8:45 pm

Chanel’s new chief Virginie Viard merged the worlds of two of its most famous couturiers, those of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, for a cerebral couture show in Paris set inside a huge circular library.

For Viard’s first-ever solo couture show, both Chanel, the woman, and Lagerfeld, the house’s longtime German-born designer who died in February, were invoked through their well-known passion for books.

The theme served to provide a sense of continuity for Viard’s couture debut — but it was a display that proved the relatively-unknown 57-year-old can hold her own.-AP
