After Dallas and Edinburgh, Karl Lagerfeld chose Austria to unveil the 13th Chanel Métiers d’art Collection -a presentation designed to showcase the savoir-faire of the exceptional houses and studios of Chanel.. Between haute-couture and ready to wear, this collection presented each year in December is always made with reference to a city that corresponds with the history of this illustrious house of fashion.
This season the show took place in the Leopoldskron Chateau, a rococo palace from the XVIII century. Chanel’s Maestro revisited the dirndls, lederhosen and other traditional Austrian clothing and Tyrolean styles. With loden, tweed, felt, leather and satin cashmere mix, not forgetting the taffeta or even the lace adorned with delicate detailing, gallons of leather, trimmings, feathers and the alpine and pastoral motifs.
Evening dresses were dressed with pin tucked fronts, frills, pleats and voluminous sleeves and Cara Delevingne, the face of the 2014/15 Paris-Salzburg collection, closed the show in a white dress composed from layers of frills, by the side of the couturier.
Bravo Maestro Lagerfeld, Bravo!
