IN THE ATELIERS OF
MAISON MICHEL AND MONTEX
WITH MARINA CHEDEL

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."

IN THE LESAGE AND GOOSSENS ATELIERS
WITH VANESSA SCHINDLER

As partner of the 33rd Hyères Festival, CHANEL supports young creators. The House gave the 2017 Grand Prix winner Vanessa Schindler the opportunity to create a series of accessories and embroidered designs in the CHANEL Métiers d'art ateliers.

For this project, Vanessa Schindler chose to work with the embroidery studio Lesage and the goldsmith Goossens. This partnership reaffirms how interlinked craftsmanship and fashion design truly are: "I wanted my finished pieces to bear the stamp of these two wonderful houses, reflecting my enduring taste for hand skills and craft, both essential and indispensable."

HANDBAG STORIES:
SAVOIR FAIRE

The making of a CHANEL handbag requires a wide range of skills. The ateliers work on the development and creation of unique designs in leather. Traditional craftsmanship joins cutting-edge technology in the deft hands of the artisans. The skins are cut by digital machines using stamps or following a pre-set line before undergoing a series of carefully planned manufacturing stages. This process requires painstaking coordination and harmony, rooted in a combination of know-how and exceptional mastery of technique.

PODCAST WITH ANNE BEREST

In this third episode, Amanda Harlech interviews French writer Anne Berest in the Parisian apartment of CHANEL's founder at 31 rue Cambon. Upon entering the room, Anne immediately notices the collection of books reflecting Gabrielle Chanel's personality and love of literature. Anne Berest and Amanda Harlech then talk about the room's arrangement, drawing a parallel with the contents of a handbag and how they can reveal so much about its owner. Anne Berest's 2.55 is a real "writer's bag": it wouldn't be complete without a book, a pen and a notebook to jot down inspirations.
