The Grand Palais, the symbol of Chanel‘s success was once again the protagonist of an extraordinary event that saw him turn into the most coveted apartment ever. 31 Rue Cambon, Paris: the house where it all began, where Coco Chanel cultivated her genius and creativity.
The Mètier d’art 2019/20 collection starts again from Coco herself, from the character, from her charm and from her way of being …
and of dressing. The crucial question in creating the collection was: “How would you wear it?” From here a sophisticated Mètier d’art 2019/20 collection is born to investigates the genius of Coco Chanel and the iconic Karl Lagerfed who made the maison live again thanks to a new contemporary taste.As always, the undisputed protagonists are knitwear and tweed, which enhances fantastic versatile and elegant jumpsuits with a garçonne taste. Short jackets soften thanks to rounded corners and are paired with low-waisted skirts that free the legs and the step.
An urban and contemporary tone is added by the tie-dye applied on the profiles of the jackets or on the chiffon of the long dresses embellished with feathers that also decorate braids and bags.Tulle camellias decorate a diaphanous dress in pearl-colored tulle, or unexpectedly they rest on evening bomber jackets, one of which is quilted with duchesse satin flowers with rhinestones in the center, combined with sequined trousers; the other with white silk flowers embroidered in the center like jewels.
The portrait of Coco Chanel shot by Cecil Beaton in 1937 inspired some pieces of the Mètier d’art collection 2019/20 such as the black double-breasted strapless dress.The bicolor, the other icon of Chanel, characterizes the shoes again like the one in gold leather with black heel and decorated with small bows. In the beauty of the immense Grand Palais and in the multitude of looks that step on the catwalk of the Metier d’art collection 2019/20 a small accessory could escape attention.
But a Chanel bag never goes unnoticed … even if in mini size! The Boy Chanel and the Gabrielle are finally available in the miniature version and are worn by the models as jewels.
