CHANEL & THE METROPOLITAN
MUSEUM OF ART

Some of the most memorable fashion exhibitions have taken place at the Costume Institute in New York, part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art since 1946. The Institute shares the House’s bold spirit, and provided the perfect setting for a large-scale CHANEL retrospective in 2005. Designs by Gabrielle Chanel from the 1920s were showcased alongside Karl Lagerfeld’s creations. At the 2016 “Manus x Machina” exhibition exploring links between fashion and technological innovations, visitors could explore numerous CHANEL looks.

The House’s designs are not only exhibited but also worn each year at the Met Gala by celebrity guests and ambassadors such as Kristen Stewart and Lily-Rose Depp. On December 4th, Karl Lagerfeld chose The Metropolitan Museum of Art to present the next Métiers d’art 2018/19 collection.

MAISON MICHEL
HATMAKER AND MILLENER SINCE 1936

A creative laboratory in perpetual evolution, Maison Michel was founded in 1936 by Auguste Michel. Steeped in exceptional tradition, the House has conserved and passed on all the secrets of the hatter and millinery trades to its specialists and artisans.
The House continues a creative dialogue with CHANEL on its hats, which regularly accessorize the looks of the collections. Boaters, half-veils, caps, and knit caps all offer a new twist on a wide range of classic headwear in multiple variations, interpreting CHANEL’s codes.

Contemporary Paris-based embroidery studio Atelier Montex designs incredibly modern and exclusive motifs, both sophisticated and innovative, that continue to enhance CHANEL’s collections.
