Chanel shows are known for their spectacular, extravagant themes—whether it’s an excavation of ancient Greece or re-creating a lifesized beach, the fashion house never fails to transport viewers to another world. For the Chanel Métiers d’art Pre-fall 2019 on December 4, the brand took to New York—more specifically, the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Inspired by Ancient Egypt, the 17th annual Métiers d’art collection delivered a brilliantly subtle and modern interpretation of Chanel’s allure. With clean, simple lines and pure geometric forms, elegant silhouettes and exquisite accessories dominated the collection. From fine embroidery, to intricately opulent earrings and the airbrushed gold legs on the runway, the show was nothing short of breathtaking. This show also marks a special moment for the brand, as just a day before, Chanel had announced that it will no longer be using exotic skins in future creations, opting to throw out the crocodile and snake skins in an effort to uphold ethical fashion.
Over 1,000 prominent faces and friends of the brand gathered to marvel at the fashion house’s latest catwalk. Amongst them were ambassadors So Joo Park and Pharrell Williams who also walked for the brand. A star-studded affair—with names ranging from Caroline de Maigret to Julianne Moore—guests enjoyed an exclusive preview at what lies in store from Chanel. Celebrations continued late into the night with a party at the Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. Scroll through the gallery to see which celebrities were there.
