"In New York, I like the energy, the air, the people, the architecture, the confusion, the mix.’’ — Karl Lagerfeld
The Art Director of the House has always been inspired by the city that hosted several CHANEL's fashion shows and exhibitions.
In 2005, Karl Lagerfeld presented the Métiers d’art collection in the CHANEL boutique of 57th Street. Two years later, the Cruise collection was set at the Grand Central Station, an iconic Manhattan location. New Yorkers have also had the opportunity to discover Karl Lagerfeld's work through exhibitions organized in the city. In the fall of 2008, the ‘Mobile Art’ pavillion created by architect Zaha Hadid upon Karl Lagerfeld's invitation, stopped by in Central Park. In 2012, the traveling exhibition ‘The Little Black Jacket’ was presented in SoHo, highlighting the House's icon.
Whether set on the Fifth Avenue, in Harlem or Brooklyn, the city has also often served as a backdrop to the CHANEL campaigns under Karl Lagerfeld's lens. The endless streets, iron balconies, red brick façades, traffic lights and street signs — these elements have all nourished the creator's imagination, inspiring him to associate CHANEL with this urban landscape.
This year, the city of New York once again inspired him. The Paris-New York 2018/19 Métiers d’art collection will be unveiled at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on December 4th.

The year 1983 saw the arrival of Karl Lagerfeld at CHANEL and the beginning of collaboration with the House of Lesage. At the pace of the runway shows, the ateliers bring the designer’s vision to life, however extraordinary. Heirs to a unique know-how, the agile and inventive embroiderers adorn clothes and accessories with sumptuous embroideries. During the 1990s, led by a desire to diversify the activities of the House, Lesage established a textile atelier proposing innovative and sophisticated tweeds assembling the most diverse threads.
Expert in the art of jewelry, Goossens began its partnership with CHANEL in 1953 following a creative collaboration between Gabrielle Chanel and Robert Goossens. He developed a style and technique of his own, blending sculpture, goldsmithing and costume jewelry design. Collections of sculptural jewels rival with lighter pieces, giving free rein to CHANEL’s creativity.
Since Gabrielle Chanel’s creation of the famous two-tone shoe in 1957, the collaborations between CHANEL and shoemaker Massaro have never stopped. In 2002, the House joined CHANEL’s Métiers d’art. Show after show, the virtuosity of Massaro responds to Karl Lagerfeld’s creativity by developing designs that dazzle with inventiveness, elegance and technical skills.
