Chanel combined skiwear (big fashion news at the moment, from Thom Browne to House of Gucci) and nightclubs for the Chanel AW21 collection this week in a film directed by Inez & Vinoodh, set in Parisian club, Castel.
Virginie Viard was inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s previous shows, where models would dress themselves and do their own make-up. “The models can get changed, dressed and undressed, do their make-up together, and have fun like a girls night in,” she wrote in the show notes. “I love contrasts.” In beauty terms, that translates into poker-straight hair, a defined center parting, and thick rims of kohl around the eyes.
The dramatic, heavy black wings were created using Chanel eyeliner and the Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Modern Glamour, €55, with lashings of mascara on top. Models without blackened eyes wore clean, gleaming skin with groomed brows and a natural lip. Hairs was poker-straight hair or naturally textured, with strict center partings and blunt cut bangs.
