GABRIELLE CHANEL’S
FIRST VISIT TO NEW YORK

In 1931, Gabrielle Chanel embarks on her first trip to America. Taking advantage of an invitation to Hollywood by famed producer Samuel Goldwyn who wants her to dress his actresses on and off screen, she stops en route to visit New York City. Accompanied by Misia Sert, Gabrielle Chanel discovers a city that enchants her with its energetic pace. A reception is held in her honor at the Hotel Pierre where she stays.

On December 4th, the House returns to New York ahead of the next Métiers d’art show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

LESAGE
EMBROIDERER SINCE 1858
AND TWEED MAKER

The year 1983 saw the arrival of Karl Lagerfeld at CHANEL and the beginning of collaboration with the House of Lesage. At the pace of the runway shows, the ateliers bring the designer’s vision to life, however extraordinary. Heirs to a unique know-how, the agile and inventive embroiderers adorn clothes and accessories with sumptuous embroideries. During the 1990s, led by a desire to diversify the activities of the House, Lesage established a textile atelier proposing innovative and sophisticated tweeds assembling the most diverse threads.

GOOSSENS
GOLDSMITH SINCE 1950

Expert in the art of jewellery, Goossens began its partnership with CHANEL in 1953 following a creative collaboration between Gabrielle Chanel and Robert Goossens. He developed a style and technique of his own, blending sculpture, goldsmithing and costume jewellery design.
Collections of sculptural jewels rival with lighter pieces, giving free rein to CHANEL's creativity.

MASSARO
SHOEMAKER SINCE 1894

Since Gabrielle Chanel’s creation of the famous two-tone shoe in 1957, the collaborations between CHANEL and shoemaker Massaro have never stopped. In 2002, the House joined CHANEL’s Métiers d’art. Show after show, the virtuosity of Massaro responds to Karl Lagerfeld’s creativity by developing designs that dazzle with inventiveness, elegance and technical skills.

TWEED SILHOUETTES
CRUISE 2018/19

Tweed is the signature fabric of the CHANEL collections, changing through the seasons and taking on different textures, forms and colors. The tweed intertwines materials and zingy colors, a mixture of bright pastel tones sparkling with dazzling white or candy pink sequins. Very short, geometrical dresses are striking and almost seamless in appearance, featuring pockets trimmed with matching braid to accentuate their symmetry. Round neck or turtleneck, they have the simple look and easy movement of shift dresses. Accessorized with a beret and white tights, they come in bright, pop colors.
