What is the Métiers d’Art collection?
Métiers d’Art means ‘art professions’, and it is the title given to the annual Chanel collection that pays homage to the small specialist workshops that Chanel began buying in 1984, in order to preserve the expertise and craftsmanship associated with French luxury. Today these ateliers have become essential to the everyday running of the fashion house, providing Chanel with everything from lace to embroidered buttons. ‘Without them,’ the late creative director Karl Lagerfeld once said, ‘I don’t know how we could do it.’ (Courtesy of christies.com)
