Chanel show, Fall 2020/21

I almost didn't go yesterday to gape outside the CHANEL show (online here). The finale of PFW/Paris Fashion week is always at Grand Palais and the sun always comes out for Chanel. The better to see the head-to-toe OTT Chanel outfits.
Even if the world is going to hell in a hand basket. I want that basket❤️ 
Watching the invitéesI kept hearing in my head, "She works hard for the money" It ain't easy being rich, beautiful and perfect. A lotta hard work goes into it. I am finished with ice cream. I mean it. 
The music on the Instagram Chanel video btw is: Pan & Polo-Canopee. I'm in love❤️ 
Their skirts looks like kitchen foil. Musta cost a mint.
Clean simple all-black chic not screaming Chanel 👍🏻
The no makeup look. She's French.
Bear Loved the stripes.
Sorry about the ciggie. She's French.
Those split white pants were in the show.
Mary Poppins? Ooops No its GiGi/Leslie Caron  
Lurve those boots. As for the looks (lewks is the word) on the runway...See  VIDEO, IMHO there's a lotta of LITTLE WOMEN influence. i.e. white-lace collar/cuffs, puffy sleeves, fitted long coatdresses. What do you think? 
Thanks for reading PB. Please share. Keep safe everyone 🙏🏻 Make chicken soup and enjoy Paris letters 💌and watercolors in your own mailbox 📬Xxx❤️Carolg🐻Bear

Great coverage! And the music was marvelous....I liked the styles, too, although I can see why many would say boring or frumpy.

Love Channel! Those models stride! The jackets and coats! And the super elegant woman in black. Perfect understatement. Thank you.

Parisbreakfasts said...

I dont think models can afford these clothes.
Strictly Real people and loaded.

Mary H said...

Merci, Merci, Merci Carol!!! I love the puffy sleeves - but my takeaways were the heavy, large "cross" necklaces, the scalloped- edged jackets, big bangs or no bangs, shorts with long coats, black and white over and over and that PUNCH of hot pink! I usually watch the runway shows on the Vogue website! I ADORE FASHION - always have, always will and always will turn to my sewing machine to recreate some of the trends as I cannot afford now or ever CHANEL!

Sharon T said...

OMG! THIS PARISBREAKFAST!!!
I lust for many examples! French women rock! The Pink cape! The slits in white pants! (Tear my pants at bottom to make slits! Am I French??? And a Chanel fashionista!!! Don’t I wish!)(N
B: Laboutin stilettos)

Carolyn I said...

Such fun!!! Those white “glasses”??!!

CM said...

You nailed it! I love seeing your choices & REALLY
enjoyed your commentary (especially about the basket!). I’m so glad you went - you went and got these shots for all of us who couldn’t be there. MERCI BEAUCOUP, Carol!!!!!

Bonelle said...

How fun! Loved the all black or all white looks...but most looked ridiculous, imho! Way too OTT! You need to get an invitation...go in and see the show in the Grand Palais. Then you can report back to us!

Parisbreakfasts said...

If only...
Know anyone in high places at CHANEL??
🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🌹💋

Lara said...

Sigh...to dress head to toe in Chanel...maybe in my next life!

Susan said...

Wild and wonderful but I'd never give up ice cream.
I knew that 'lewk' is beyond me.

Parisbreakfasts said...

A girl can dream can't she...?
I bet yr lewk is already terrific. Who needs Chanel anyway?

Kathleen said...
