The symphony of fashion and culture comes to life in Manchester, where the sophisticated elegance of Chanel merges with the pulsating cultural energy of the city. Through Virginie Viard's interpretation, the Métiers d'art 2023/24 collection becomes a vibrant fresco that celebrates Manchester's musical history and the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel. The creative vision of Sofia Coppola previews the event, transforming snapshots of Manchester's youth into a visual prologue, while a post-show exhibition, "ManchesterModern: Past Present Future," brings together artistic talents to celebrate the city's creativity. An ode to individuality, creativity, and the timeless fusion of fashion and culture
A divided Paris: on one side, the unrestrained luxury of Fashion Week's catwalks; on the other, violent clashes over the death of a young man at the hands of a police officer.

The industry, though connected to the surrounding reality, doesn't come to an abrupt halt. Yet, it's understandable that some raise an eyebrow at the narrative of luxury without awareness of the context, but Paris, amidst Fashion Week and protests: the ethically dramatic aftermath of "the show must go on"

As the Haute Couture Week comes to an end, have a look at what went down in Paris. Again, for Summer 2023, Haute Couture returns in all its glory, reminding us that fashion is a dream machine. We often wonder what the task of fashion is. Perhaps the best answer is that there is no answer. Fashion is a complex device that helps us see beyond the barriers of everyday life. A superfluous game, perhaps. But human beings live on the superfluous. As Professor Keating said in Dead Poets Society, "poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."

Tweed is a fundamental part of the CHANEL look. In the 1920s, Gabrielle Chanel became the first fashion designer to adapt it to womenswear. Since then, reinvented with every season, it continues to weave this nonchalant, elegant and highly desirable allure into all of the CHANEL Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear collections
