Maison Lesage, part of CHANEL’s Métiers d’art since 2002, is putting its unique embroideries on display in Venice as part of ‘Homo Faber’, an exhibition dedicated to celebrating European craftsmanship. Through numerous samples, behind-the-scenes photographs, as well as CHANEL Haute Couture silhouettes designed by Karl Lagerfeld, Maison Lesage unveils the extent of its savoir faire skills and innovation abilities. "There is a creative dynamic that encourages craftsmen to be imaginative, to reinvent details and refinements each season in order to always surprise," says Hubert Barrère, Maison Lesage’s artistic director.
Visitors are also invited to participate in the making of a collective piece on the ground floor of the exhibition.
