The CHANEL Spring-Summer 2023 Haute Couture show by Virginie Viard was held on Tuesday, 24 January 2023 at the Grand Palais Éphémère in Paris. That same afternoon and on the day after the show, 600 students from various art, fashion and design schools were invited to discover the show décor which had been designed by French artist Xavier Veilhan: École Boulle, Ensaama, Duperré, ENSCI, Penninghen, EnsAD, Camondo, IFM – Image Major, École des Beaux-Arts de Paris, École nationale supérieure d’architecture Paris-Malaquais, École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Paris-Belleville, Atelier de Sèvres and the École de production Grand Paris Nord – Iron Academy Paris.

The guided tour was held in the presence of Bruno Pavlovsky, President of CHANEL SAS and President of le19M. “The idea is to understand this absolutely unique and exceptional creative dialogue between Xavier and Virginie,” he explains.

The mise en scene created by Xavier Veilhan in collaboration with set designer Alexis Bertrand, evokes a village festival, framed by seating stands in different colors. At the invitation of Virginie Viard, the artist reinterpreted the bestiary in Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment at 31 rue Cambon, by creating a parade of eleven sculptures in the shape of animals, ranging in height from two to four meters, and made from wood, cardboard and paper: a croco-dog, a camel, a buffalo, a doe, a dog, a bird, two fishes, a lion, a horse and an elephant from which models emerged during the show.

Through this visit, CHANEL reaffirms its commitment to the transmission of knowledge to schools and universities.
