The Chanel Metiers d’Art show will take place in December at an as yet undisclosed location near the Scottish capital it was revealed Wednesday, following the French luxury brand’s acquisition of Scottish cashmere firm Barrie earlier in the week.
The annual Chanel Metier D’Arts premiere took place in the Galerie Courbe at Paris’s Grand Palais Tuesday December 6 with an India-themed luxury show.
Models, adorned with accessories including head-jewellery and turbans – also for men – walked the epic runway sporting the 2012 pre-fall collection.
Last year, Karl Lagerfeld brought Paris to London, and this year he brings Moscow to Paris, highlighted by his silent film presentation. He shied away from the subtle, with elements of Russian folklore tying the collection together, including elaborate headdresses, thick fluffy knits and sparkly gold boots.
