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.

Tweed is the signature fabric of the CHANEL collections, changing through the seasons and taking on different textures, forms and colors. The tweed intertwines materials and zingy colors, a mixture of bright pastel tones sparkling with dazzling white or candy pink sequins. Very short, geometrical dresses are striking and almost seamless in appearance, featuring pockets trimmed with matching braid to accentuate their symmetry. Round neck or turtleneck, they have the simple look and easy movement of shift dresses. Accessorized with a beret and white tights, they come in bright, pop colors.
