CHANEL 'Paris-Édimbourg' Métiers d'Art 2012/13

Scottish Spirit - CHANEL 'Paris-Édimbourg' Métiers d'Art 2012/13 Show

Inspired by the rich heritage of Chanel in Scotland, and the skilled craftsmanship of Scottish tweed and cashmere, Karl Lagerfeld present his Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d'Art Collection 2012/13 yesterday at 6pm within the walls of the Linlithgow Palace near Edinburgh, Scotland.

Chanel's Métiers d'Art collection pays homage to the bijou's studio Desrues, to the feathers' studio Lemarié, to the Maison Lesage for the embroideries, to the shoes craftsman Massaro, to the Maison Michel for the hats, to the goldsmith Goossens, to the flower producer Guillet, to the crochet embroideries by Montex and to the gloves by Causse. Originally the majestic royal palace of the Stuarts, dating back to 1424, and birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, the ruined castle, will provide a spectacular backdrop for the collection which honours the ateliers.

After Byzance and Bombay, Chanel has chosen Scotland: "I was inspired by the rich heritage of Chanel in Scotland, and the craftsmanship of Scottish tweed and cashmere, that are an integral and iconic part of Chanel’s collections", said Karl Lagerfeld. The house of fashion is connected with Scotland since a long time ago: in 2012 it also bought Barrie Knitwear, an Hawick-based company that has kept creating cashmere knitwear items for 25 years for the house of fashion founded by Gabrielle Chanel.

Twelve tents have been fitted in the surroundings of the castle; however, the exact venue of the show – which, we are sure, will not fail to amaze the audience – is yet to be revealed: it could take place in one of the especially decorated inner courtyards of the Linlithgow Palace.
