Chanel Métiers d'Art: 'Paris in Rome 2015/16'

To "Paris in Rome 2015/16" yesterday evening, the new CHANEL Métiers d’art collection inspired by French actresses and Italian cinema, Karl Lagerfeld chose a legendary place where all imaginary worlds and creative desires come together: the Cinecittà Studios in Rome.

Tones of a late Roman autumn with the fetish colours of CHANEL, cashmere, silk crepe, chiffon and georgette among the many luxurious fabrics all compose an extensive wardrobe with typically Parisian elegance and a lingering dash of Italian glamour. The iconic suit is trimmed with a "galon pellicule". It comes as a trompe-l’oeil dress or as a three-piece version with jacket, straight skirt and cigarette trousers. The pleated silk and feathers that adorn dresses, skirts, blouses and coat linings are painted with motifs recalling Roman marble, while "farfalle" embroideries also make an appearance in this Franco-Italian wardrobe. With the last looks of the collection, lace negligees embroidered with tulle, sheath dresses in pleated velvet and "camicie da notte" in crêpe georgette and guipure lace made the perfect silhouette for evening.

At the end of the show, the boutiques, restaurants and cafés all came alive as the party began. The guests, the extras and the models became the protagonists of a black and white film with a soundscape of voices belonging to lyric singers and buskers...
