Every December, Chanel introduces its Métiers d’Art collection, paying homage to the expertise and craftsmanship of French luxury. Continuing the ongoing creative dialogue between Virginie Viard and Chanel artisans, the brand just presented its Métiers d’Art 2024 show in Manchester.
Collaboration and creativity are at the heart of every Chanel Métiers d’Art collection, and this year is no different, connecting the ateliers at Rue Cambon and the Maisons d’Art at le19M with friends of the house and the city of Manchester.
A buzzy destination for pop culture and avant-garde fashion with storied musical roots, Manchester was the perfect destination for the creativity that comes with Métiers d’Art. The show, which took place on an emblematic street in the city, presented a shimmering palette with pops of color.
Ready-to-wear encompasses the diverse array of Chanel’s House codes, like tailoring and tweed, quilted leather, and more. Vibrant shades of apple green, raspberry, and apricot are presented on silhouettes with a uniquely British flair.
