What better way to say adieu to the women’s spring/summer 2020 collections — and Paris Fashion Week in particular — than with the ultimate in chic French design, Chanel? At the (rather eventful) runway show at the Grand Palais, Virginie Viard’s collection evoked Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy with tweed suits (that sported younger, higher hemlines), ruffles, and pearl jewelry. It was a thoughtful homage but never sickly sweet. The hats were a particular favorite, as you can see.
