About a month after the protests for the Black Lives Matter movement erupted, Dior chose to have a complete white cast for their Haute Couture short film.
As the music and visuals started for the Chanel Cruise 2020/21 collection on IGTV, I for a second deemed this to be a fantastic collection for Virginie Viard. The music was divine, Time by Arca, and for a virtual show I knew I couldn’t be too picky of the set especially given it’s the first digital show for Chanel in history (but still, it’s Chanel..) But further in I began to notice an unfortunate tale of too much denim that Chanel does not need, and triangle bags that have Karl and Coco turning.
When I come to think of it, I’m more old-school than modern when it comes to many things. When talking with family or friends I much prefer a phone call over a text, when dating come to the door to pick me up rather than shooting me a text, and of course, with fashion. The history of the fashion show is exciting and so interesting to see how they have evolved over the past one hundred years or so. With COVID-19 changing all of our lives, it has affected the fashion show and has designers thinking if they are even an essential part anymore.
