CHANEL‘s annual Métiers d’Art show will be staged on December 1, – traditionally marking the end of the annual calendar of runway shows, and is celebrated for its exuberant style and brilliant craftsmanship of couture. The event will take place at Château de Chenonceau, the Loire Valley castle also known as the Château des Dames.
Chanel first began staging Métiers d’art shows back in 2002, to highlight the unique skills of a rare collection of artisan houses with the group, specialists in embroidery, millenary, pearls, boot-making, feather and other generally specialist skills. At its heart is French savoir-faire has, resources like Maison Michel for hats; Causse Gantier for gloves; boots by Massaro; costume jewelry by Goossens and Lemarié for feathers and flowers.
Since its debut almost two decades ago, the house has staged audacious shows in such far flung locations as Rome, Salzburg, Bombay, and New York. Under former artistic director Karl Lagerfeld the Métiers d’art shows toured the planet, making stops in 2009 on the Bund in Shanghai, and in 2012 in Edinburgh’s ruined Linlithgow Castle, the ancient home of the Kings of Scotland.
