Ciao, Roma! Direct From Cinecittà Studios was the Chanel pre-fall 2016 Métiers d’Art show. As you remember, it has been less than one month after the devastating terror attacks in Paris, with this collection about sets and moviemaking, transforming the Cinecittà, Italy’s “Hollywood on the Tiber” into a black-and-white vision of a vintage version of the beloved city.
With references from French actresses Jeanne Moreau, Anouk Aimée, Monica Vitti, and Romy Schneider, the collection embraced long jackets, lace stockings, and black ciré pencil skirts. Silhouettes inspired by the 1960’s included patent raincoats, boxy jackets, and quilted leather suits. Karl delighted in slight eroticism with metal details and sexy chokers. It’s classic Chanel with a bit of kink.
