AURÉLIE FILIPPETTI AND KARL LAGERFELD
VISIT THE METIERS D'ART ATELIERS

"What I admire the most, is the patience (...), the precision and the refinement," says Karl Lagerfeld about the Maisons d'art and their craftmanship.
The Artistic Director and Aurelie Filippetti, the French Minister of Culture, visited the new Métiers d'art ateliers in Pantin, near Paris, on Friday, February 7th. These ateliers include embroiderer Lesage, feathermaker Lemarié, milliner Maison Michel, atelier grand flou Paloma, and the goldsmith Goossens, which are honored each year in December with Chanel Metiers d'Art show.
The Minister emphasized, "These trades, this excellence, they are a French exception."

The Corset

For the Spring-Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection, Karl Lagerfeld chose the corset as the centerpiece of the silhouettes. The iconic jacket is transformed into a round-shouldered short jacket and the bustier dress accentuates a slim waist embraced in a corset embroidered with stones or sequins.

CAMBON CLUB

Sébastien Tellier composes and interprets music like one would for a film.
"La Ritournelle" and "l'Amour Naissant" are hymns that are both resounding and completely evocative.
From the first sketches of the collection and the fashion show, Karl Lagerfeld wanted an intimist club and a performance to highlight the collection. It was together, with Karl Lagerfeld and Virgine Viard, that we thought of Sebastien Tellier to illustrate this chapter in the life of Chanel.
