Chanel showcases Metiers d'Arts collection Paris-Dallas
December 19, 2013: Karl Lagerfeld recently unveiled the Chanel Métiers d’Art show in a décor that resembled a rodeo. The Paris-Dallas 2013/14 collection was held at Dallas Fair Park, a national historic landmark renowned for its Art Deco architecture. To kick off the evening, guests entered a drive-in where they enjoyed the screening of Karl Lagerfeld’s new film ‘The Return’, seated in a fleet of vintage cars.
Mr Lagerfeld has fused Chanel’s mainstay colours, white, beige, red, navy and black, with touches of blush pink, and prairie hues such as browns, grays and wheat-tones in this collection. He channels romantic elements of the Wild West but with a contemporary twist. Flared and straight skirts hitting mid-calf, snappy cocktail dresses, long, flowing gowns, sculpted or loose suit jackets, capes and ponchos capture an easy, effortless style. Silk, satin, lace, tweed and other elegant fabrics are flawlessly embellished with details like fringes, pleats, ruffles and the star motif.
Hollywood actor Kristen Stewart will be the face of the Paris-Dallas collection.
