Chanel Métiers d'Art 2016/17 "Paris Cosmopolite"
The "Paris Cosmopolite" 2016/17 Métiers d'art collection takes the newly-renovated Ritz Paris hotel for its décor, a setting cherished by both the House of Chanel and its founder Gabrielle Chanel. For this occasion Karl Lagerfeld affirms his attachment to Paris by choosing the Ritz Paris which he considers to be "the cosmopolitan spot par excellence". Twenty celebrities have glided through the fitting room to create this Café Society ambiance with Chanel ambassadresses Lily-Rose Depp, Ellie Bamber and Alice Dellal, as well as Cara Delevingne, Sistine Stallone, Georgia May Jagger... all wearing little veils or crowns of roses on their heads. "No camellias this season, it's all about roses!" declares Karl Lagerfeld. The ambassador of the House Pharrell Williams and Levi Dylan, Bob Dylan's grandson, complete this exceptional cast. Very elegant and inspired by "the evening dresses that women used to wear to dine at the Ritz" according to Karl Lagerfeld, this incredibly Parisian collection focuses on a silhouette with a well-defined waist and lengthy godets that caress the calf.
