French fash­ion la­bel Chanel brought a touch of tin­sel­town to the Paris run­way on Tues­day, with glam­orous feath­ered gowns and a nod to the Hol­ly­wood sign, recre­ated to spell out the brand’s name. Mod­els pa­raded in and out of the giant “Chanel” let­ter­ing, trans­posed from the hills of Los An­ge­les to the interior of Paris’ Grand Palais ex­hi­bi­tion hall, as guests perched on stools at the so­cially dis­tanced show. Chanel’s lat­est out­ing show­cased in­spi­ra­tion drawn from Hol­ly­wood’s 1950s hey­day — with a French touch.

A short film re­leased be­fore the show paid tribute to ac­tresses such as Jeanne Moreau and Romy Sch­nei­der who caught the eye of Amer­i­can direc­tors but also starred in French clas­sics at the time. Looks in­cluded off-the-shoul­der evening gowns and feath­ered black-and-white dresses, while de­signer Vir­ginie Viard — who took over last year from the late Karl Lager­feld — brought out new twists on Chanel’s clas­sic tweed suits.

Mod­els wore tweed jack­ets over silky shorts, while shift dresses in­cluded trompe l’oeil de­tails such as pock­ets on the back. The col­lec­tion also fea­tured dashes of bub­blegum pink and lo­go­heavy py­jama style tops.

A-listed guests in­cluded singer and ac­tress Vanessa Par­adis and her daugh­ter Li­lyRose Depp. Chanel would nor­mally in­vite its clients from around the world to at­tend cat­walk shows, though many were ab­sent due to travel re­stric­tions linked to the pan­demic. —
