Chanel Brought Its Haute Couture Fall-Winter 19/20 Presentation To Dubai And Its Detailing Is Impeccable

Inside Chanel’s sumptuous Fashion Avenue boutique at The Dubai Mall, a spectacular show unraveled on Tuesday. It was one that summoned up the French maison’s library-inspired showcase at the Grand Palais earlier this year, one that was a culmination of Creative Director Virginie Viard’s vision of chic nonchalance that’s so inherently Chanel.

Take a closer look and you’ll be enraptured by the detailing of each piece in true Chanel style: think about fluid volumes, belts and bows, and clean graphic panels, awash in colors that range from monochrome hues to splashes of pink, fuchsia, honey, plum and burgundy, among others. Duchess satins, double-sided fabrics, and of course, tweeds and wool crêpe, dress each piece.

Akin to wearable art, each piece has a decorative appeal that’s accentuated with textured lace, multicolored embroideries and feathers, delicately put together to create flowers and whorls. Among the heroes of the collection are the belted dress in pleated two-tone tweed with a small collar and layered feuilleté cuffs.

Virginie is a master at the art of creating trousers, whether in satin or wool, which are the perfect condiments to the line’s sweaters. Fantastical and feminine, this collection brings back the allure of Chanel with great gusto, and we can’t wait for you to experience it.
