MÉTIERS D'ART KNOW-HOW
2. MARBLE EFFECT FEATHERS

The feathers on the skirt were reworked before being appliqued onto the crepe georgette, while those on the top were painted to resemble marble then re-cut and sewn onto the organza in the Lemarié ateliers.

For the silhouette of this piece from the Paris in Rome 2015/16 Métiers d'Art collection, Karl Lagerfeld played with contrasts, combining the lightness of black feathers with a powerful visual effect of white veined marble.
