Coco Chanels inspirasjon fra klosteret

Coco Chanel vokste opp blant nonner i et kloster, og det formet henne som designer. Chanels sjefsdesigner Virginie Viard følger tradisjonen i kolleksjonen for høst/vinter 2020.

07_FW_2020_21_RTW_Close_up_pictures_7Gabrielle Chanel var 12 år gammel da hun og søstrene Julia og Antoinette ble overlevert til barnehjemmet i Aubazine. Faren, en lutfattig omstreifer fra Saumur lovte å komme å hente dem så snart han kunne. De så han aldri mer.

28_FW_2020_21_RTW_show_Backstage_pictures_28_Barnehjemmet i Aubazine var et gammelt kloster som ble drevet av nonner tilhørende søsterordenen Marias Uplettede Hjerte. Her var det smått med vakre kjoler og fargerike interiør. Alt gikk stort sett i sort og hvitt, den eneste skjønnheten lå i de geometriske formene og konstrasten mellom det sorte og det hvite både i interiør og i nonnenes bekledning.

13_FW_2020_21_RTW_Close_up_pictures_13Vi må anta at den unge Chanel sugde til seg disse inntrykkene, og at de inspirerte hennes design i all ettertid – noe som også dagens sjefsdesigner Virginie Viard har plukket opp, særlig i kolleksjonen for høst og vinter 2020.

Chanel was inspired by the nuns and the convent

And head designer Virginie Viard picks up on the design legend’s inspiration in the collection for fall/winter 2020.

45_FW_2020_21_RTW_Close_up_pictures_48Gabrielle Chanel was 12 years old when her mother died. She and she and her two younger sisters Julia and Antoinette was left orphaned in a convent in Aubazine. Her father a wayfaring tradesman from Saumur had promised to return and pick up the girls once he started making good money.

07_FW_2020_21_RTW_Close_up_pictures_7They cried as he waved them goodbye. They never saw their father again.

28_FW_2020_21_RTW_show_Backstage_pictures_28_The orphanage was a convent run by the Sisters of The Sacred Heart of Mary. It was a spartan world void of luxury and colors, the interior as well as the nun’s habits were strictly black and white.

The only ornaments were the geometrical shapes of the glass windows of which the young Gabrielle must have gazed, and which later gave her the inspiration for her logo.

13_FW_2020_21_RTW_Close_up_pictures_13The collection for 2020 has plenty of the details that Chanel became so famous for, including the black and white ensembles and religious symbols.
