INVITATION TO THE VOYAGE

Gabrielle Chanel's love of yachting and the seaside provided her with opportunities to take a break from her busy life in Paris, recharge her batteries and find new inspiration. This luxurious pastime took her to fashionable destinations in the company of friends, from Monte Carlo to Venice. Photographs from this era show her radiant in the Mediterranean sunshine with the Duke of Westminster. She is pictured posing on his yachts the Flying Cloud and Cutty Sark, wearing pleated pants or Bermuda shorts and a mannish waistcoat.

A striking sepia print shows her lounging on the fore deck, elegantly dressed in a simple polo shirt and loose linen slacks. With her chic, relaxed look, Gabrielle Chanel is the very image of the modern woman, a woman ahead of her times.

LEMARIÉ ATELIER
AT THE HYÈRES FESTIVAL

At the Villa Noailles, Lemarié offers festival goers the opportunity to attend an embroidery workshop and discover CHANEL's Métiers d'art. Christelle Kocher, the artistic director of the House and president of the Fashion Accessories jury, came up with the concept of a white tablecloth, which each visitor is invited to embellish with embroidered motifs. These are always floral or plant-inspired and are composed of Lemarié's favorite materials: rhinestones, silk, cotton, and Rhodoid. Renewing its partnership with the Hyères Festival is a way for Lemarié to share its skills and craftsmanship.

LEMARIÉ EXHIBITION
AT VILLA NOAILLES

At the 33rd Hyères Festival in the South of France, CHANEL pays tribute to the unique expertise of the feather and flower embroideries maker Lemarié. The House's exhibition at the Villa Noailles explores the relationship between design, craft, luxury and fashion.

The exhibition is designed to showcase the precise hand skills of the craftsmen and craftswomen: cutting, crimping, sticking, assembling, curling, fraying, folding and inlaying. A metal structure in the middle of the room displays black-and-white photographs illustrating the various techniques used. The feathers, floral and folded adornments created in the Lemarié atelier, illuminate each collection of CHANEL designs.

This invitation to discover and appreciate the craft tradition of Lemarié is a way for CHANEL to support the transmission of its Métiers d'art.
