CHANEL’s Métiers d’art are a constantly reinvented tradition that combines exacting standards with bold innovation. They are a constellation of workshops offering exceptional craft skills, including the featherwork specialists Lemarié, bootmakers Massaro, embroiderers Maison Lesage, hat maker Maison Michel, and pleating experts Lognon.
Every December, Karl Lagerfeld unveils a special new Métiers d’art collection inspired by a city that’s linked to the past of present of the House. Showing fabrics such as tweed, leather, cashmere, and silk and decorative accessories such as gloves, jewelry, and embroidery at their absolute finest, the shows pay homage to the creative imagination of the House and the virtuoso skills of the craft specialists.
Tokyo, New-York, Monte-Carlo, London, Moscow, Shanghai, Byzance, Bombay, Edinburgh, Dallas, Salzburg, Rome, Paris and soon Hamburg, all hosted the Métiers d’art collections.
