The CHANEL 2021/22 Cruise Collection was officially debuted with a virual show at the Carrières de Lumières with its limestones as backdrop for the presentation in Les Baux-de-Provence. For this collection, Virginie Viard drew her fascination from Gabrielle Chanel and one of her greatest friend - Jean Cocteau & his 1960 film Testament of Orpheus which inspired the theme of her new designs.

Amongst the iconic tweet suite ensembles with beats, sequins and braids, the cruise collection carries some new and lighten designs with silk prints, leather fringes, worn with net stockings, and an array of bags, custom jewellery, and shoes. Elements of rock-n-roll, the sixties, and punk modernity are also reflected in the collection with black/white and masculine/feminine contrasts which Virginie has bodied to the collection.

A short film had been earlier released before the show's debut in Les Baux-de-Provence. The film was directed by Inez & Vinoodh featuring model Lola Nicon inhabiting a variant of looks from the collection in Coco Chanel's home at 31 Rue Cambon.
