The Images from the CHANEL Spring 19 Ready To Wear Collection prove that a dusty pastel palette is prominent this season with only one print story, Beach Umbrellas. This collection the key colours are soft, dusty gelato tones, swaying slightly more towards pinks and purples than blues and greens. We can see that Chanel know the warmer months this season will be about channeling vintage Palm Springs vibes, think levels of Slim Aarons captured glamour.
PRINT STORY: BEACH UMBRELLAS
I personally like how at a micro scale the Beach Umbrellas in repeat look like a geometric print, and only when you look closer you realise what you are looking at. The umbrellas allude to the poolside glamour that you would expect from a resort or cruise collection, yet, here we are looking at Ready To Wear. I think it is clear that Chanel are aware that beach and poolside vibes are not just for holidays in a 2019 world, many people are living this lifestyle all year long. The conversational that this is, is certainly unexpected, yet still safe, in comparison to prints that make less sense from other high end brands.
I am excited to see this colour palette have it's moment on core pieces and also extend into mini geometrics for print, as brands begin to channel this look coming into late 2019.
