The Best Looks From Chanel SS 2021 Hollywood-Inspired Runway Show
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:
1/6 Black & White
The contrast of black and white is classic Chanel, playing out in everything rom jumpsuits and jackets to chain-inspired jewellery.
2/6 Forever Tweed
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.

3/6 Pink Brigade
If there's one colour that pops out, it's pink. The delicious shade creates a vibrant palette, marrying sophistication and a laidback vibe so apt for the season.

4/6 Floating Angels
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.
5/6 Shine Bright
Bedazzling sequins are hand-embroidered on skirts, flare pants and jackets, a most fitting nod to Hollywood glamour.
6/6 Logo Mania
Make no mistake—being understated is back in the closet. After all, when it's a Chanel, the logos, when worn out and proud, do make a cool statement.
