To dreamy music by Sebastien Tellier, Charlotte Casiraghi opened the Chanel spring-summer 2022 haute couture show on horseback, dressed in a black sequined tweed jacket, she rode through a minimalist set reminiscent of the industrial aesthetics of world fairs. "The idea for the show's décor came from a longstanding desire to work with Xavier Veilhan. His references to constructivism remind me of those of Karl Lagerfeld," Virginie Viard explained. “I like this similarity of spirit between us, now and across time. In addition to creating the show décor with its references to the avant-gardes of the 1920s and 1930s, Xavier wanted to work with Charlotte Casiraghi. His artistic universe is full of horses and Charlotte is a skilled rider," Virginie Viard, artistic director of the house, added.
Fresh and light silhouettes followed, featuring floral motifs, lace, macramé and transparent fabrics. Virginie Viard turned to all the house's partner embroiderers for these precious creations, such as the Montex and Lemarié workshops, as well as Lesage, which designed a dress entirely adorned with constructivist camellias in black, white and coral beads, worn with a small black jacket (look 28).
