THE TEMPLE OF DENDUR:
MÉTIERS D'ART SHOW SETTING

Karl Lagerfeld chose the sandstone Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the setting for the Métiers d'art 2018/19 show. Commissioned during the reign of the Roman emperor Augustus Caesar around 10 B.C, the Temple is today one of the most recognizable symbols of ancient Egypt. Gifted to the United States in 1965 in recognition of the country’s support of the UNESCO  International Campaign to Save the Monuments of Nubia, and awarded to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1967, the Temple continues to inspire all who see it.

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.
