    MARITIME-INSPIRED EMBROIDERIES

    "I cannot imagine fashion without embroidery" says Karl Lagerfeld. For the Paris‑Hamburg collection, Maison Lesage created twisted braids motifs evoking ship's cordage. Adorning organza or tweed, this bead and mohair embroidery brings a feminine touch to the sailors-inspired silhouettes.

    MÉTIERS D'ART COLLECTION <BR />PARIS-HAMBURG 2017/18

    MÉTIERS D'ART COLLECTION
    PARIS-HAMBURG 2017/18

    Hamburg is where Karl Lagerfeld chose to present the Métiers d'art collection, at the new Elbphilharmonie designed by the architects Herzog & de Meuron. The collection pays tribute to the craftsmanship of the embroidery, feather-making, millinery and bootmaking workshops.

    This new opus is a homage to the city, evoking the futuristic architecture of the concert hall, the atmosphere of the port with its colorful shipping containers, the brick warehouses in the docks, the seamen's clothing. Pea coats, double-buttoned sailor's trousers, tweed suits with sailor collars and neckerchiefs, heavy cable-knit sweater and mini dresses, long fitted coats: Karl Lagerfeld renews the CHANEL codes with a masculine-feminine slant underscored by the simple, rigorous look of this line in a palette of black, navy, gray, and beige with touches of red, brick and gold. Daywear brings tweeds woven by Maison Lesage, wool, flannel, jersey, silk crepe and chiffon. Eveningwear is elegant and precious: a suit embroidered with tiles of mother-of-pearl in the Montex studio, sequined sheath dresses with sailor collars, sailor's trousers in black and gold tweed or in black satin, asymmetrical dresses in iridescent crepe on tulle embroidered with multicolored sequins, a black crepe tuxedo. A bustier mini dress revisits the iconic stripy sailor's top, embroidered all over with feathers handpainted in the Lemarié ateliers, or lengthened with a feather-fringed satin skirt.

    Every outfit is paired either with heeled brogues worn sometimes with long knitted socks, or with ankle-strap pumps designed by boot- and shoemaker Massaro. Maison Michel’s sailor’s cap comes in every fabric of the collection. Seabags, clutch bags inspired by shipping containers, and tweed bags in the colors of the city accessorize the silhouettes, for a bold and modern look.

    TWEED IN THE COLORS OF HAMBURG

    Wool, velvet ribbons and lurex thread intertwine to create a range of tweed motifs. These creations are colorful constellations of honeycombed and embossed textures.

    The colors of the city and its tangle of streets, canals, and bridges inspired this season’s fabrics. Each tweed takes on ochre hues, echoing Hamburg’s brick walls and port warehouses.
