CHANEL Pre Fall 2012

“We’ve had Paris-London, we’ve had Paris-Shanghai, so it felt like time to go off the circuit, to somewhere less expected,” said Karl Lagerfeld after Tuesday’s Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show, entitled Paris-Bombay. Coco Chanel loved Indian Jewelry and this show represented that passion in the best light. Filled with glamorous jewels and the Chanel classic fabrics that are just so exquisitely made. This collection says so much to me, besides the beautiful and antique pieces of jewelry the signature Chanel suits and pieces represent such class and sophistication. I love the pop of velvet and the deep grey/red/and classic white colors, too. The combined force of the likes of “Lesage”, buttons and jewelry by “Desrues”, metalwork by “Goossens”  flowers of lace, silk, and velvet by “Guillet”, and the newest addition to the stable, announced only yesterday, Montex, another storied Parisian embroiderer, creates this masterpiece of a collection. In the end, what made this collection so intriguing wasn’t an idea of India’s past, but its future.

This is Chanel’s annual love letter to all of the incredible and venerable ateliers whose work allows for this Métiers d’Art collection . – Karl Lagerfeld
