One entwined CC inspires another

Chanel’s presentation of the latest Métiers d’art Collection in the Grand Gallery of Chateau de Chenonceaux was a consequence of the Chateau being inspiration for the newly appointed designer, Viard’s collection.  We selected a few of our favourites to pique your interest followed by a link to the parade.

The Grand Galley’s slate and chalk checkerboard floor provided the backdrop.

The checked motif appeared on skirts and tweeds.

while reference to the colourful tapestries adorning the bedchambers was not overlooked, adding a regal richness to the collection.

Black was a dominate feature.  (Note:  There’s never really been a ‘new black’ – it’s indelible in style).  White came through as a punctuation mark – a quintessential hallmark of Chanel.


A nod was made to the magnificent arched bridge supporting the gallery in the design of this fabulous belt.

The Chateau’s gardens were referenced in this stunning black lace dress of stud-punctuated latticework by Maison Lemarié with embroidery by Maison Lesage.

In added flair, a sparkling coat dress left nothing to chance.  Breath taking glamour!
