The Paris - New York collection mixed elaborate evening looks and jewellery with a downtown denim uniform synonymous with New Yorkers. These denim jeans and jacket, with faux fur lapels, are distressed and adorned with embroidered patches. The relaxed silhouette was paired with a custom graffiti tee, splashed with playful hand-drawn illustrations — a mix of the graphic iconography of the House with Egyptian hieroglyphics.

This full leather look in the Paris-New York collection offered an opportunity to illustrate the truly innovative spirit of Karl Lagerfeld and the Studio, who presented a whole range of jackets, pants, and accessories in embossed leathers that mimicked the idiosyncratic crocodile pattern. With CHANEL’s commitment to no longer WORK WITH exotic skins, the finesse of this new technique showcases the modern possibilities of the Maison's unparalleled expertise.
