SAILOR SUIT

For the Paris-Hamburg 2017/18 Métiers d’art collection, Karl Lagerfeld redefined the suited look. The jacket with sailor collar and neckerchief is paired with a mini-skirt. Red braiding evocative of ship rigging contrasts against the ivory tweed by Lesage.

RIBBED KNITS

Karl Lagerfeld drew on the sailor style to create the spirit of the Paris-Hamburg 2017/18 Métiers d’art collection. The ship cordages inspired the braided motifs of the cashmere knits.

A DETAIL OF CRAFTSMANSHIP:
MONTEX EMBROIDERIES

Combining traditional know-how skills with a sense of innovation, the artisans of the atelier montex turn Karl Lagerfeld's sketches into three-dimensional embroideries and use the crochet de Lunéville technique and the hand-guided Cornely machine to create motifs.

Using patterns made by the CHANEL ateliers, the embroiderers draw the designs on tracing paper before transferring them onto the fabric. Strips of Rhodoid are stitched on one by one to compose geometric motifs that bring out the asymmetrical lines of the evening dresses.

A DETAIL OF CRAFTSMANSHIP:
LESAGE TWEED

Tweed, a woolen fabric borrowed from menswear by Mademoiselle Chanel, has become an essential part of the CHANEL style. The different kinds of thread that make up this fabric give it unique, irregular appearance. Karl Lagerfeld creates audacious, reference-packed designs in exclusive tweeds by Lesage, bold juxtapositions of materials and motifs.

The tweeds in the 2017/18 Métiers d'art collection are made of wool interwoven with velvet ribbon and lurex thread. Their checked motifs echo the network of canals and bridges in the city of Hamburg, where the collection was presented. Hues ranging from orange to brown with hints of blue evoke the colorful freight containers stacked on the city's docks.
