Collection Metiers d’art the creative Director of Chanel Karl Lagerfeld traditionally carries around the world. And the next stop was new York. It was there yesterday, the show, which was attended by dozens of stars, fashion critics and customers at Home.
Miss a great show, which, incidentally, was held at the Metropolitan Museum of art, are unable Penelope Cruz, Margot Robbie, Marion Cotillard, Diane Kruger, Lily-rose Depp, Julianne Moore and many other celebrities.
Metiers d’art is a story that began in 2002. Then Lagerfeld for the first time presented to the public collection dedicated to the artistic crafts, to demonstrate continual creative dialogue between the Creator and craftsman. This time the designer turned to the culture of Ancient Egypt by building the collection around the key characters of the era. On the podium were the gold of the pharaohs, the blue color that distinguished the priests, prints, imitating the Egyptian writing system, bags, pyramids, massive decorations. And if the model acted as goddesses, Pharrell Williams, who are friends of Lagerfeld, it seems, was invited to the role of Pharaoh.

Show in new York was for the Chanel third: in 2005, Lagerfeld has already held in the Big Apple the fashion show Metiers d’art “Paris — new York”, and a year later the presentation of the collection Resort 2007 at the Central station. This time the scene was the Metropolitan Museum of art — the show was held in the scenery of ancient temple of Dendur, brought from Egypt during construction of Aswan dam.
