Métiers d'art 2021/22

In the maisons d’art ateliers

The Métiers d’art bring together several hundreds embroiderers, feather workers, paruriers, goldsmiths, pleaters, shoemakers, hatters, milliners, glove makers as well as tanners. Under the impetus of virginie viard, the set of savoir-faire perpetuated and constantly reinvented by these artisans contributes to rendering each creation an exceptional piece.

Combining ancestral traditions with contemporary creation, this is the magic of the Montex embroidery atelier. The sophisticated, modern and precious motifs that contribute to magnifying the CHANEL collections are all made using needlework, a Lunéville crochet hook or with the Cornely, a century-old embroidery machine guided by the hand. Montex joined the CHANEL Métiers d’art in 2011.

Precise gestures, meticulous workmanship, accurate proportions, perfecting the object... Robert Goossens’ technical skills evolved between sculpture and goldsmithing, from 1954, when he recreated Byzantine jewellery with Gabrielle Chanel, and later when he designed some of the furniture for her apartment at 31 rue Cambon. The House of Goossens perpetuates the heritage of its founder and today continues to respond to CHANEL’s imagination. Goossens joined the CHANEL Métiers d’art in 2005.

Since the 1960s, CHANEL’s emblematic camellias - like all of Lemarié’s floral ornaments - have been hand assembled petal by petal. In the completely draught-free workshops of le19M, armfuls of feathers are sorted one by one, then combed, curled or smoothed, glued or even woven. A vital partner to CHANEL for its collections, Lemarié also excels in couture sewing and creates remarkable inlays, flounces, smocks and pleats. Lemarié joined the CHANEL Métiers d’art in 1996.

A creative legend which has collaborated with the greatest couturiers, Lesage designs and embroiders sumptuous patterns. Since 1996, it has also been reinventing the tweed so dear to CHANEL, blending woollen yarns with the most unexpected materials.

At le19M, Lesage brings together its ateliers, its unique collection of samples and its school where embroiderers pass on the secrets of their savoir-faire to the younger generations.

LES ATELIERS LOGNON,

pleater since 1853

Knife, flat, sunray, Watteau or peacock... Lognon has more than 3,000 Kraft cardboard pleat moulds that look like origami.

Knife, flat, sunray, Watteau or peacock... Lognon has more than 3,000 Kraft cardboard pleat moulds that look like origami. Some are over one hundred years old; others have just been created - because the Lognon artisans are constantly looking for new pleats, particularly for the CHANEL Creation Studio. Giving shape and movement to the most varied fabrics is a virtuoso skill, a perfectly synchronised four-handed operation that requires physical strength, extreme meticulousness, experience of touch and expert knowledge in the specificities of the textile. Lognon joined Lemarié and the CHANEL Métiers d’art in 2013.
