HAUTE COUTURE ACCORDING
TO KARL LAGERFELD

“Haute Couture is an island of dreams and escapism. It is the utmost luxury which transcends fashions and crosses time.” Karl Lagerfeld’s observation summarizes the primary vocation of CHANEL since Gabrielle Chanel first opened her Couture House in 1915. Imbued with unique know-how, Haute Couture finds its essence in the vision of a designer and the perfection of cut and detail, elevated by the craftsmanship of the Maisons d’art that bring their expertise to each creation. Precision of line, shape and structure is epitomized by singular pieces that may be embroidered with more than a million beads. In this way, Haute Couture gives free rein to any idea, without limit or constraint. Such creativity goes hand-in-hand with patience and the highest standards.

THE CHANEL ATELIERS

Haute Couture pieces require the talents of the most experienced head seamstresses. Beneath their agile fingers, Karl Lagerfeld’s detailed sketches come to life. It starts with a cotton toile, the first interpretation of a design that materializes a silhouette. Once a collection’s 60 or 70 looks are approved, they are assembled, sewn and meticulously embroidered. Whether cut in “flou”, ethereal fabrics destined for dresses and blouses, or other, more structured textiles used for "tailoring", each requires exacting execution. The "flou" atelier thus enters into a savvy dialogue with the "tailoring" atelier, which is specialized in making structured pieces with complex cuts.
