For spring-summer 2021, designer Virginie Viard celebrates lively styles and silhouettes with neon jeans, flowing dresses, tweed suits, and sequins

Held at Grand Palais in Paris, the Chanel spring-summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection evoked cinematic allure by celebrating actresses who have a relationship, both on and off-screen, with the House. Evoking the famed Hollywood sign, the Chanel name appeared in illuminated giant letters, serving as a spectacular backdrop for the models sashaying down the pristine white runway.

“This collection is a tribute to the muses of the House. Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld dressed so many actresses in films and in real life. I was thinking about them who make us dream so much. But without wanting to replicate. Without falling into a vintage citation. I wanted it to be very joyful, colourful, and very vibrant too," explained designer Virginie Viard.

Here are our favourite looks:

No Chanel collection is complete with a tweed jacket or five. What may be refreshing this time is that the woollen fabric also appears in a contemporary half-shoulder dress, high-cut skirts and a deep V-neck sleeveless dress in earthy shades.

The flowing dresses are deliberately unlined for maximum fluidity. These ethereal dresses are unfussy, capable of going from a sexy day look to a sultry evening ensemble without skipping a beat.

Bedazzling sequins are hand-embroidered on skirts, flare pants and jackets, a most fitting nod to Hollywood glamour.
