Every Look From Chanel’s Métiers D’Art 2024 Collection – CR Fashion Book

A nod to punk rock bands of the ‘80s that the city had produced, including Joy Division, New Order, and The Smiths, Viard reimagined Chanel’s house codes to suit the youthful, industrious Northern girl of Manchester. To start, she begins by reworking Chanel’s iconic tweed jackets, incorporating contrasting inner fabrics, attaching chain belts to blazers, and introducing multiple topstitched panels to enhance freedom of movement. Nevertheless, she never strays from the Maison’s house codes, reminding guests of Gabrielle Chanel’s mastery of tailoring with the collection’s A-line mini and knee-length skirt suits all made in fitted cuts. 

The runway was immediately awash with all the vibrant colors one could think of to evoke the youthful and more contemporary spirit Manchester holds: salmon pink, apple green, sky blue, pumpkin orange, mustard yellow, and red. But the show’s use of accessories further emphasized this contrast of grit and elegance Chanel ever so proudly embraced. Models sported newsboy caps, beanies, thigh-high socks, and extra-long scarves, reminiscent of the city’s two world famous soccer clubs, while black leather Mary Jane flats dominated the runway to serve as the finishing touch in Viard’s love letter to Great Britain. 

This year’s Métiers d’art collection definitely served its two-fold purpose: Viard not only revived the quintessential spirit of the Maison through its skilled artisans and their work, but also paid tribute to its chosen city and the cultural icons that have profoundly shaped its history. “With a vibrant sensitivity and musicality, the 2023/24 Métiers d’art collection evokes the ever-youthful love story between Chanel and Great Britain, an adventure that has lasted for over a century,” said in the show’s notes.
