CHANEL, a Hyères Festival partner, has invited the winner of the 2017 Fashion Accessories prize Marina Chedel to develop a part of her new collection in collaboration with CHANEL's Métiers d'art, Maison Michel and Montex.
Inspired by the sea and its waves, the collection plays out in shades of blue. Embellished with ribbons, twists and a patchwork of wool and yarn, the young designer's offering is imbued with the unique craftsmanship of the artisans she encountered. "I was intrigued by their savoir-faire. The embroidery at Montex is very contemporary and architectural. And the work at Maison Michel is precise and majestic, it's been a crazy opportunity learning alongside such talents."
