LEMARIÉ ATELIER
AT THE HYÈRES FESTIVAL

At the Villa Noailles, Lemarié offers festival goers the opportunity to attend an embroidery workshop and discover CHANEL's Métiers d'art. Christelle Kocher, the artistic director of the House and president of the Fashion Accessories jury, came up with the concept of a white tablecloth, which each visitor is invited to embellish with embroidered motifs. These are always floral or plant-inspired and are composed of Lemarié's favorite materials: rhinestones, silk, cotton, and Rhodoid. Renewing its partnership with the Hyères Festival is a way for Lemarié to share its skills and craftsmanship.

LEMARIÉ EXHIBITION
AT VILLA NOAILLES

At the 33rd Hyères Festival in the South of France, CHANEL pays tribute to the unique expertise of the feather and flower embroideries maker Lemarié. The House's exhibition at the Villa Noailles explores the relationship between design, craft, luxury and fashion.

The exhibition is designed to showcase the precise hand skills of the craftsmen and craftswomen: cutting, crimping, sticking, assembling, curling, fraying, folding and inlaying. A metal structure in the middle of the room displays black-and-white photographs illustrating the various techniques used. The feathers, floral and folded adornments created in the Lemarié atelier, illuminate each collection of CHANEL designs.

This invitation to discover and appreciate the craft tradition of Lemarié is a way for CHANEL to support the transmission of its Métiers d'art.

SUMMER POP UP BOUTIQUE
IN SAINT-TROPEZ

Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera encapsulates the Mediterranean lifestyle. And it's here in this village that CHANEL has, every year for the last nine years, opened its pop-up boutique. For the duration of the summer, a new decor is created at the mansion 'La Mistralée', located between the Old Port and the Place des Lices. This season, the interior is a blend of rough and raw ornamentation and geometrical design, echoing the Hamburg docks that inspired the 2017/18 Métiers d'art collection. Metal walls with circular openings like portholes showcase the CHANEL designs. The space extends to a pool house by a shady garden with palm trees and cacti.

Until October 28
1, avenue du Général Leclerc
Saint-Tropez, France

VILLA NOAILLES
BY KARL LAGERFELD

Located in the hills rising above Hyères in the South of France, Villa Noailles is a hub for artistic encounters. Designed by the modernist architect Robert Mallet-Stevens between 1924 and 1932, this cubist building is forever imbued with the spirit of the artists who visited the house or lived there, from Buñuel to Man Ray, Dalí, and Cocteau. Karl Lagerfeld devoted a series of photographs to the villa, inspired by its avant-garde architecture.

Overlooking the bay of Hyères, the home of art patrons Marie-Laure and Charles De Noailles has a freely designed layout providing new and unusual viewpoints. Conceived as an artists' residence, it fosters a blend of culture and leisure, reflecting a new way of living. From the 1930s, the De Noailles brought together figures from the worlds of art, fashion, design and literature under its roof. It's a tradition that endures to this day courtesy of the Hyères Festival.
