As the Grand Palais undergoes renovations, Chanel’s runway moves to a more intimate setting, the Castel nightclub, which has been a haunt of Francoise Hardy, Mick Jagger, and more. As a nod to the past, when models did their own makeup backstage and dressed themselves, Virginie Viard wanted to capture that sense of camaraderie in the close space as she imagined “the models doing a show for themselves, going from room to room, crossing each other in staircases, piling their coats up in the cloakroom, and going up to the next floor to get changed.”
