Chanel focused attention on the ateliers that operate in house with the Paris-Hamburg Metiers d’Art Collection that was showcased recently in Moscow.
At the beginning of the month, the Paris-Hamburg Metiers d’Art Collection made its presence felt in the Russian capital of Moscow. The 2017/18 show was first displayed last year in Hamburg and when it arrived in Moscow, the collection was paraded by models against a stark industrial-themed space. Held at the Pavilion 69, which is part of the VDNKh trade show and park complex, the show attracted a slew of celebrities and the elites from the city. Guests at the show included Ravshana Kurkova, Soo Joo Park and Marine Vacth who also attended a party that was held at the same venue. Some of the guests also arrived dressed to mesh up with the maritime theme of the collection.
The harsh industrial setting however did not manage to dampen the maritime vibe of the collection which was evident in the sailor inspired caps and tops with seafaring stripes. Chanel has been using the collection to showcase the outstanding savoir-faire that its Maisons d’art is famous for. A day after the collection was presented, Chanel also held a master class that was headed by Bruno Pavlovsky, the company’s President of Fashion. The class helped students get a glimpse at the craftsmanship which went into the creation of the hats, buttons and other jewelry that was featured in the collection and evoke the spirit of the sea.
