Chanel is launching the 2021/22 Métiers d’art collection in boutiques this month and the brand hosted a runway show featuring the collection in Florence as part of the celebration.
On June 7th, 2022, Chanel presented its 2021/22 Métiers d’art collection in Florence to remind us of the exquisite handwork that goes into these creations. The brand held a previous show of the collection earlier in December 2021 when it was first revealed in Paris, and this recent presentation marks the launch of the collection in boutiques around the world.
This second show was set against a backdrop created especially for the occasion at the Stazione Leopolda, a former train station from the first half of the 19th century. Brand ambassadors Penélope Cruz, Caroline de Maigret and Angèle attended the show alongside director and friend of the House Sofia Coppola, Italian actresses Coco Rebecca Edogamhe, and many more.
Guests enjoyed a journey through the collection as they arrived, first landing in a room where three animated films were projected, they were then led into the main area of the event, a white room with walls swathed in pleated curtains and camellias. Symbols of the brand were visible throughout, from the long black ribbon that led the guests through each room acting as a guide, to the emblematic Chanel flower, traditionally made by the House of Lemarié, which was featured as an oversized version, in reference to the dreamlike world of the animated films.
The Chanel 2021/22 Métiers d’art collection is available here in the UAE in Chanel boutiques from June 9th.
