THE THRILL OF THE FORBIDDEN
The inspiration behind the Chanel Joan Elkayam Autumn/Winter 2020 collection was Mata Hari, known as the greatest female spy of the 20th Century. A mysterious woman, with great attractiveness whose charms ensnare her lovers often leading them into compromising, dangerous situations. Her complex character, self-obsession and sexual chemistry.
She was defying male expectations of that time and chose an independent unconventional life.
