Each December since 2002, CHANEL unveils a collection dedicated to its Fashion Métiers d’art.This collection highlights the creative dialogue between Virginie Viard, Artistic Director of CHANEL’s Fashion collections, and the Maisons d’art, enhancing the creations of the House.

Returns to live in the glorious Renaissance. And the credit goes to the Chanel Métiers D'Art Le Château des Dames fashion show. We are in the Loire Valley, in Le Château de Chenonceau. That castle (of the Ladies) which has been inhabited by extraordinary women, such as Catherine de' Medici. An exceptional woman, Catherine remains an orphan, just like Gabrielle Chanel, and grows up, like her, in a convent. Both linked to esotericism, they remain eternally linked to the color black for life.Interna

In fact, the dominant color in the collection is black. A parade of models parades through the marbles and the wide corridors of the castle, wearing total black outfits. The garments are enlivened by sequins and geometric decorations on the fabrics. This year Virginie Viard, decides to evoke the figure of a woman strongly 6influential in history: Caterina De' Medici. 

KristenThe particularity that characterized the event was the total absence of public, due to the emergency from Covid-19, in the presence of only one guest, the testimonial Kristen Stewart. In any case, despite the lack of magic granted by the spectators in the presence, the event was perfectly successful.

Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.
