New collection hits the nerve of the time

With her collection for autumn and winter 2022/23, Chanel designer Virginie Viard captures the spirit of the times. As part of the Paris Fashion Week in early March, the successor to Karl Lagerfeld (1933-2019) presented tweed as the centerpiece of the new designs. But not only the models were completely attuned to the new old trend, but also the traditional location of the Chanel fashion shows: The Grand Palais was from the seats to the walls to the catwalk Decorated with tweed.

Originally, the material tweed probably comes from the rural areas of Scotland and Ireland. Tweed is characterized above all by its robustness and in the past had the purpose of protecting people working outside from wind and weather. But then Coco Chanel discovered the material for herself and her fashion designs…

The famous French fashion designer presented the first Chanel suit made of tweed in February 1954 at the opening of her fashion salon. At that time, a traditional tie-neck blouse in pastel colors was combined with a suit – and the journey of English tweed in fashion history took its course.

Styling tweed in 2022

Today, the styling is a bit more modern: At the show in Paris, Virigine Viard presented, among other things, a modern cut black and white bomber jacket together with a white, simple turtleneck sweater and a kind of harem pants made of flowing fabric. There was also a tight-fitting tweed midi skirt and tweed dresses in all sorts of variations. Often in combination with thick tights in trendy colors or the brand new and acclaimed Chanel rain boots. The fashion show ended a black, elegant and tight-fitting bustier dress.

Incidentally, anyone who is enthusiastic about the trend does not have to wait until the autumn and winter season. Many fashion houses and fashion chains are already offering tweed garments for spring. Among other things, boxy shirt dresses with a tailored cut, tweed jackets as an alternative to the classic blazer or skirts in a wide variety of lengths and cuts.
