Chanel Métiers d'Art 2014/15 Paris – Salzburg

 Today the Chanel Métiers d'Art 2014/15 Fashion Show was presented in Salzburg (Austria) at the Schloss Leopoldskron.
As always for his Métiers d'Art Shows, Karl Lagerfeld chose a location that was somehow connected to Coco Chanel's life.
As you can see in the short film Reincarnation by Karl Lagerfeld that came out yesterday (1st December, with Géraldine Chaplin, Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams), she was inspired by the uniform of a liftboy in Austria to create one of her famous jackets.

The collection was undoubtedly inspired by traditional costumes you often see in Austria and Germany, some elements even reminded us of traditional Swiss clothing.
The countrified patterns and materials on the one hand and the emperially inspired pieces on the other, go along with the typical Chanel elements and cuts and merge into another one of Karl Lagerfelds artistic highlights.
A recurrent element was also the Sisi-Star, that you can find as buttons, embellishment and even in the hair of the models.
Here some of our favourite looks from the show:

The Chanel Métiers d'Art Fashion Show is always one of the shows we especially look forward to, as we love the choice of locations and how Karl Lagerfeld always integrates influences from the culture of the country where the show takes place in his collection.
