PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
EMBROIDERIES BY MONTEX

The playful hand of the Parisian embroiderer Montex is evident in the colourful, graphic motifs and trims adorning some of Karl Lagerfeld's dresses in the Paris-New York Métiers d'art collection. A crystal rendition of skyscrapers, icons of the New York City skyline, animates the sleeves, collars and hems of a handful of dresses. Elsewhere, there’s a long gown canvassed entirely with an artful combination of beads, plaited Scoubidous and hand-painted, twisted and pierced pieces of leather.

PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
PLEATS BY LOGNON

A combination of pleated black tulle and organza add movement to the silhouettes featured in the Paris-New York Métiers d'art collection. The delicate accordion pleats, set just 5mm apart, were moulded in the Parisian atelier of Lognon and added to the skirts of several dresses, while swathes of layered pleats festoon the sleeves of another.

PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
GOLDEN SHOES BY MASSARO

Working with Karl Lagerfeld's illustrations, the skilled bootmakers at Massaro fashioned four new styles for the Paris-New York Métiers d'art collection: a flat, closed-toe, gold leather sandal exudes elegant simplicity while black and two-tone gold pumps are much more ornate; their heels bejewelled by fellow Métiers d'art Maisons, Goossens and Desrues. The Massaro craftsmen also made two-tone gold boots with black patent leather toes, and over-the-knee leather boots cast in solid gold or a metallic graffiti with New York and ancient Egyptian-inspired motifs.

PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
EMBROIDERIES AND TWEEDS BY LESAGE

A rich, mineral palette informs the vibrant hues used by the embroidery House Lesage. Metallic and multi-coloured bugle beads fan out across garments like sunbeams, while patterns mirroring the palms of a papyrus leaf were hand-appliqued using a mix of glass beads and decorative metallic thread. Sumptuous adornments that feature a mix of embroidery and stones from Goossens appear as trims and ornaments on straps, bodices, breastplates and shoulders. Hand-loomed, custom tweeds brim with vivid blue and earthen-toned thread interwoven with hand-painted gold ribbon.

PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
BUTTONS AND HEELS BY GOOSENS

Gabrielle Chanel's original jeweller, the Maison of Goossens, has contributed to a CHANEL collection with handcrafted buttons and bold belt buckles. The buttons, cast in resin in lapis lazuli blue, are in the form of scarab beetles; their gold backing engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphics. Goossens also brought their precious, decorative touch to Massaro's shoes and boots, inlaying each heel with coral and turquoise enamel motifs.

PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
FEATHER EMBROIDERIES BY LEMARIÉ

In the weeks leading up to Paris-New York Métiers d'art show, ten artisans from the Parisian plumassier Lemarié worked in tandem, hand-applying rows of feathers to Karl Lagerfeld's creations. Following an age-old technique, they hand-painted feathers in a palette of navy, turquoise, red and gold, before carefully cutting and then assembling them in geometric reliefs. The signature CHANEL camellia was carefully crafted in the same vibrant tones, along with the House's signature monochromatic hues.
