Tag Archives: Chanel Métiers d’Art

The Métiers d’Art is Chanels pre-fall collection, which is shown yearly in early December. In contrast to most other brands, which show the more affordable and basic pieces in the pre-collections, Chanel focuses on outstanding, highly expensive items highlighting the craftsmanship of the various ateliers. The collection is designed by Karl Lagerfeld and presented at varying locations around the globe. It usually arrives in store in June!

The Chanel Salzburg jewelry

After handbags and shoes … lets take a closer look at the costume jewelry from the Chanel Métiers d’Art 2015 Paris Salzburg collection! In line with the spirit of the whole show there was a strong ambivalence within the jewelry on the runway. There were these incredible pearl and Swarowski stone necklaces, bracelets and brooches that looked like lace or embroidery immediately awaking thoughts of the elegance of royal courts. Although costume jewelry some of the pieces were reminiscent of Buccellati’s incredible “Lace and Diamonds” collection.

Chanel Salzburg shoe parade …

After talking Chanel Salzburg handbags yesterday lets come to the shoes today! Paris Salzburg was full of great shoes, that provided a perfect fusion of the codes of Chanel and the Salzburg theme of the collection. One of my personal top pieces were the Chanel combat boots 2015. Surely they showed certain parallels to the fall 2014 sneaker boots. But this time around they seemed to be more gracile thus making them a lot more wearable. In particular the all black shoes showed great potential to become one of the ultimate “It” pieces of the collection.

A closer look at the Chanel Salzburg handbags

Surely the bags presented on a Chanel runway only make up a small portion of the huge amount of new colors and textures that will finally appear in store with a collection. And yes the runway bags aren’t really classy. Maybe not even timeless. But despite of that I always love to have a closer look at them and love to be inspired by how Chanel employed couture embroidery techniques for the design of its runway bags! So lets have a closer look at the Chanel Salzburg handbags!

Heidi and Peter meets Sissi and Franz

The Chanel Salzburg show came to a close and a day of constant instagram feed refreshments is finally over. The backdrop for the incredible Métiers d’Art collection, Chanels annual pre-fall show in honour of the craftsmanship of its ateliers, was an array of beautiful Rococo salons at Schloss Leopoldskorn near Salzburg. Paying tribute to Austria’s rich heritage in sweet treat a huge table artfully decorated with everything from Christmas cookies and Gugelhupf to Mozart Kugeln adorned one of the rooms. However, lets not get distracted by the incredible setting! What about the fashion?

The story behind Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art show

Just 2 week after the official international launch of Chanel’s Dubai inspired cruise collection the brand is going to present its Métiers d’Art Paris Salzburg show next Tuesday, Dec 2nd. One day in advance the full version of the accompanying short film “Reincarnation” starring Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams will debut on chanel.com. So for all Chanel devotees a big week is laying ahead of us. Honestly within the past 20 years fashion show schedules got more and more complex and confusing. Initially there was a summer and a winter collection. Now its a summer and a winter collection, a pre-fall and a cruise with more basic pieces plus several capsule collection – “a seasonless cycle” as Anna Wintour calls it. But what is Métiers d’Art – the equivalent to other brands more basic pre-fall collections?

The Chanel art gallery show – What to get on sale?

I know I know I am super late to write on that issue, but I was just overwhelmed by the beauty of the Paris Dallas collection that I totally forgot to provide you with some inspirations on what to hunt down from the Chanel summer 2014 sale. Here they come:

When it comes to Chanel sale the first thought that crosses my mind is “jackets”. While some classic, boxy tweed jackets were present in the collection the main focus seemed to have shifted away towards a more mens suit jacket style look.
