Devoting the entire collection to tweed is a tribute.We followed the footsteps of Gabrielle Chanel along the River Tweed, to imagine tweeds in the colours of this landscape. Like that of a long pink coat mottled with blue and purple, or a burgundy suit with a delicate gold shimmer. This is what Gabrielle Chanel would do on her walks through the Scottish countryside: she would gather ferns and bouquets of flowers to inspire the local artisans for the tones she wanted. – Virginie Viard
The garden shots bring the countryside into the city with an emphasis on a magical feminine atmosphere while the studio portraits take her out of the real world and focus on delicate expressions of the CHANEL allure.
Rianne is an eternal inspiration to us. She’s able to project and embody any character with grace and intelligence. We have a strong connection through our Dutch backgrounds and references from growing up in Holland. – from Chanel
