“Chanel confirms the departure of Virginie Viard after a rich collaboration of five years as Artistic Director of Fashion collections, during which she was able to renew the codes of the House while respecting the creative heritage of Chanel, and almost thirty years within the House,” Chanel said in a terse statement. “Chanel would like to thank Virginie Viard for her remarkable contribution to Chanel’s fashion, creativity and vitality. A new chapter is opening for Chanel Mode. We are confident in the teams’ ability to ensure the continuity of the collections during this period of transition,” the house continued.

After the announcement of Viard’s departure there has been much speculation about who will replace Viard. “Chanel is a legendary house rich with codes and an incredible archive,” said Bryanboy on Twitter. “Why roll the dice and gamble it all with something radical? Either way it’s all very exciting. Let the hunger games begin!”

There has been a plethora of names thrown into the pool of replacements for Viard. Those names include Hedi Slimane, Sara Burton, Jeremy Scott, and Pierpaolo Piccioli. That said, Viard last collection for Chanel will be winter 2025 collection on June 25 at the Opera Garnier as a part of Paris Couture Fashion Week.
