HAUTE COUTURE
AT THE MUSEUM OF LACE AND FASHION

The Cité de la Dentelle et de la Mode in Calais is holding a new exhibition, “Haute Dentelle,” devoted to high-end lace and its use in haute couture today. CHANEL loaned 11 ensembles illustrating the exceptional craftsmanship of the Maison and its Métiers d’art. One of them, an ensemble from the Spring-Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, was selected for the exhibition poster.

Lace was one of Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite materials for evening gowns. In a 1939 article, Chanel recommends the use of lace, which she saw as “one of the prettiest imitations that’s ever been made of nature’s whimsies. (...) I think tulle and lace have always lent charm, gracefulness and nobility to women’s elegance.” Thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, CHANEL is perpetuating French lace expertise and renewing it through its collections.

This new sportswear wardrobe is a combination of high-tech clothing and winter ready-to-wear. Referencing the Alpine lifestyle, CHANEL codes run through the tweed looks, the Norwegian-inspired sweaters, the soft padded and down jackets, and the mountain accessories sporting the double C.
