Hamburg looked particularly stylish yesterday with guests from around the world arriving for the latest Chanel Métiers d’Art show.
The birthplace of creative director Karl Lagerfeld, editors and celebrities were welcomed to Elbphilharmonie concert hall, a striking location that seated 1,400 fans of the house, including Lily-Rose Depp, Kristen Stewart and Tilda Swinton.
The models descended through the auditorium while five musicians from the Ensemble Resonanz played a soundtrack created by Oliver Coates, a British composer. For those who may have struggled to see some of the details would have appreciated a pair of Chanel opera glasses.
This was the second time Kaia Gerber graced the Chanel runway showcasing the collection that focused on a nautical theme reflecting the heritage of Hamburg with a 60’s twist. Tailoring, sheer fabrics, heavy-duty coats, chunky knitwear and sailor caps dominated. For evening there was plenty of embellishment, rich fabrics like velvet and lace as well as tulle scarves worn round models’ heads. But it were the bags that remained a talking point after the Lagerfeld took his leave. Continuing with the Hamburg’s maritime heritage theme, Chanel’s new it-bag, the Duffel, is designed from canvas trimmed with leather and is based on the totes traditionally carried by sailors.
A chic tribute that will inspire a sailor in anyone. Now where can we find a Chanel yacht? Click through our top looks from the show above.
