Virginie Viard called it "a new ode."
If the setting of Chanel's fall 2020 runway show reminded you of a river, specifically the River Seine, that was the point. Virginie Viard sprinkled motifs of the winding river into her set for Chanel with white curvy platforms that mirrored the river's banks and a crystal clear water-like reflection runway. With the stage set, your focus then turns on the clothes and accessories themselves. "For this Chanel fall/winter ready-to-wear collection 'almost no dresses, just casaques (jockey silks). Jodhpurs that open over seven-league boots, a nod to those belonging to Karl...' said Viard in the show notes. "Just a few touches of pale green and the emblematic pink of the House. A softness. An outline, punctured with imposing jewelry. I love Chanel so much, this collection could only be a new ode." Do you agree with Viard? Check out the full fall 2020 Chanel lineup, ahead.

ProgressiveRon: Further clarification on the part of the article that says the tribe lost an earlier lawsuit. "A federal appeals court has ruled against a Native American tribe that had been granted sovereign land to build a casino in Massachusetts. The U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston on Thursday upheld a lower court decision declaring the federal government had not been authorized to take land into trust for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe in 2015." "The lower court ruled the tribe didn't qualify because it wasn't officially recognized in 1934, when the federal Indian Reorganization Act became law. The Cape Cod-based tribe, which traces its ancestry to the Native Americans who shared a fall harvest meal with the Pilgrims in 1621, gained federal recognition in 2007." So a mistake was made. Why doesn't Congress fix it instead of allowing a technicality to stand?
