Patron of the Opening Gala of the Opéra National de Paris dance season since 2018, and of the Paris Opera Ballet since January, CHANEL reaffirms its support to the institution on the occasion of the Opening Gala of the 2021-2022 dance season.
In collaboration with the Opera’s own ateliers and the embroiderer Lesage, CHANEL created the ten costumes which will accompany the Étoile dancers year after year, at the opening of each season, during the Défilé du Ballet. For this year’s edition, Chanel House also designed the decor of the Grand Staircase of the Palais Garnier. The French luxury house also adorned the tutus and tiaras of all the stars of the Ballet de l ‘Opéra de Paris.
Following the performance, ambassadors and friends of the House Alma Jodorowsky, Golshifteh Farahani, Cécile Cassel, Zita Hanrot, Fatou N’Diaye, Marine Vacth, Joana Preiss and Ana Girardot were among the guests at the annual dinner along with Dance Director of the Paris Opera Aurélie Dupont and Étoile Dancer Sae Eun Park, celebrating the close relationship between CHANEL and the Opéra National de Paris, two Houses united by the same values of excellence and creation.
For the first performance of the 2021 dance season in February, the costumes of the two Étoile dancers Valentine Colasante and Hugo Marchand have been created especially by CHANEL under the direction of Virginie Viard.
