PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
FEATHER EMBROIDERIES BY LEMARIÉ
In the weeks leading up to Paris-New York Métiers d'art show, ten artisans from the Parisian plumassier Lemarié worked in tandem, hand-applying rows of feathers to Karl Lagerfeld's creations. Following an age-old technique, they hand-painted feathers in a palette of navy, turquoise, red and gold, before carefully cutting and then assembling them in geometric reliefs. The signature CHANEL camellia was carefully crafted in the same vibrant tones, along with the House's signature monochromatic hues.
