SCULPTED MATERIALS
MÉTIERS D'ART 2018/19

In a single design, an intricate juxtaposition of textures and contrasts required the expert contribution of several CHANEL’s Métiers d’art. This sculptural tunic dress embroidered with thousands of beads and sequins extends into a long skirt with floaty pleats. The black tulle, handmade by Maison Lognon, was slightly gathered to bring out its relief and accordion-pleated every five millimeters over a length of more than five meters. The material was given an even richer look by Maison Lemarié with the interlacing of gold thread through its weave. The centerpiece of the dress, embroidered on organza, a superposition of rhinestone and beads creating the illusion of a tweed motif, was created by Maison Lesage. By coordinating each stage of production though to assembly, CHANEL’s Ready-to-Wear ateliers bring the final design to life.

CLASSIC REMADE
MÉTIERS D'ART 2018/19
HANDBAGS

First created by Mademoiselle Chanel in 1955, the 2.55, with its quilted, body and practical yet bijou, gold chain, is an eternal symbol of CHANEL's spirit. Karl Lagerfeld's more recent iteration, the classic handbag, offered a subtle reinterpretation of the original, as the Artistic Director reworked the codes, like the CC clasp and strap, in the playful fashion he did best. This season, both of these iconic styles have both been updated in embossed and brilliant metallic leathers.

GOLDEN BOOTS
MÉTIERS D'ART 2018/19

The link between the history of the Métiers d’art with CHANEL is vital — ever since Gabrielle Chanel’s iconic two-tone shoes in the 1950s. For the latest Métiers d’art collection, Massaro fashioned a cast of inspiring footwear including golden boots, signature color of the collection.
