MAISON LESAGE
EXHIBITS IN VENICE

Maison Lesage, part of CHANEL’s Métiers d’art since 2002, is putting its unique embroideries on display in Venice as part of ‘Homo Faber’, an exhibition dedicated to celebrating European craftsmanship. Through numerous samples, behind-the-scenes photographs, as well as CHANEL Haute Couture silhouettes designed by Karl Lagerfeld, Maison Lesage unveils the extent of its savoir faire skills and innovation abilities. "There is a creative dynamic that encourages craftsmen to be imaginative, to reinvent details and refinements each season in order to always surprise," says Hubert Barrère, Maison Lesage’s artistic director.

Visitors are also invited to participate in the making of a collective piece on the ground floor of the exhibition.

HAUTE COUTURE
AT THE MUSEUM OF LACE AND FASHION

The Cité de la Dentelle et de la Mode in Calais is holding a new exhibition, “Haute Dentelle,” devoted to high-end lace and its use in haute couture today. CHANEL loaned 11 ensembles illustrating the exceptional craftsmanship of the Maison and its Métiers d’art. One of them, an ensemble from the Spring-Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, was selected for the exhibition poster.

Lace was one of Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite materials for evening gowns. In a 1939 article, Chanel recommends the use of lace, which she saw as “one of the prettiest imitations that’s ever been made of nature’s whimsies. (...) I think tulle and lace have always lent charm, gracefulness and nobility to women’s elegance.” Thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, CHANEL is perpetuating French lace expertise and renewing it through its collections.

THE LANDMARKS OF HAUTE COUTURE, PARIS


Haute Couture is quintessentially Parisian. It was born in the quarter around the rue de la Paix where Charles-Frédéric Worth founded his dressmaking salon in 1858. By transforming the couturier from a "supplier" into a "creator" he was the first to present his clients with actual collections on living models in luxurious salons.
At that time, Paris already had a reputation as the world's capital of elegance and was bursting with small businesses dedicated to the art of couture (embroiderers, feather workers, button, shoe and glove makers and milliners…).



Although Gabrielle Chanel opened her first Maison de Couture in Biarritz in 1915, she moved to rue Cambon in Paris, in 1918. By the end of the 1920’s, the address had expanded to include N°s 23, 25, 27, 29 and 31. The legendary 31, rue Cambon is now solely dedicated to Haute Couture. All of the collections and orders for Haute Couture are without exception created in this historical building.

MÉTIERS D'ART - MAISONS D'ART

Métiers d'Art
Métiers d’Art is a French term referring to crafts that combine traditional skills with cutting-edge savoir-faire, transforming fashion materials into unique or limited-edition creations. Such craft skills are truly a question of artistry, creating something extraordinary.

Maisons d'Art
Chanel acquired the first of its exceptional craft workshops in 2002, now part of its Maisons d'Art label, including Lemarié (feathers and flowers maker, 1880), Causse (glovemaker, 1892), Massaro (shoe maker, 1894), Barrie (knitwear, 1903), Lesage (embroiderer, 1924), Desrues (costume jewellery and button maker, 1929), Maison Michel (hat maker, 1936), Montex (embroiderer, 1939), Lognon (master pleater, 1945) and Goossens (goldsmith, 1950).
