For its haute couture Fall / Winter 2021-2022 runway, Chanel put on an incredibly (and greatly anticipated) display of creative prowess at the Palais Galliera, City of Paris Fashion Museum.

Inspired by two visionary female artists of the 19th century — Berthe Morisot and Marie Laurencin — creative director Virginie Viard translated feminine house codes into frothy tulle dresses, sharp tweed suiting and delicate pleating.

The beauty look was also one of grandeur — a double-winged liner, soft matte skin and a punk-ish braid mohawk entwined with a big black bow.

The makeup specifically was daring and bold — skin was nude and with a velvet finish, while the eyes were rich in thick liner. The upper lid featured a sleek black wing, whereas the bottom line was a soft midnight blue. Lashes were heavy and fluffy, and brows were clean and groomed.

Hair, styled by Damien Boissinot, was intricate and cool. Dutch braids were pulled into a faux mohawk, with a thick black velvet ribbon (a Chanel signature) woven throughout. It was chic and slightly rock n’ roll, but with that refined French finish the house is known for. Ready for the new world.
