    CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THE
    PARIS‑HAMBURG COLLECTION

    The Paris‑Hamburg Métiers d'art show at the Elbphilharmonie celebrated the exceptional craft of the embroiderers, milliners, feathermakers and bootmakers. Straight sheath dresses in midnight blue crepe with tulle, sailor caps adorned with tulle, handpainted feather sailor stripes tops and asymmetric dresses in shimmering crepe encapsulate this collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld.

    STAGING THE SHOW <BR />AT THE ELBPHILHARMONIE

    STAGING THE SHOW
    AT THE ELBPHILHARMONIE

    The Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg is home to three concert halls, including the Grand Hall with room for 2,100 people. The architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron took particular pains in designing the surfaces and their interplay of textures, especially for the inner spaces, which are clad in a "white skin" consisting of thousands of precision-cut gypsum fiber panels fitted to within a millimeter, giving the space unbeatable acoustics. Creating the space called not only for cutting-edge digital technology, but also the immense talent of the Japanese acoustic engineer Yasuhisa Toyota.

    The very shape of the auditorium is innovative. The stage is in the center, overhung by a curved ceiling that, as the architects put it, "rises vertically like a tent". Its imposing shape dictated the form of the building’s outer shell. Here, virtuoso technology draws on an in-depth mastery of tradition. Here, where heritage and modernity come together, is where Karl Lagerfeld chose to present the Paris‑Hamburg 2017/18 Métiers d’art show.

    THE ART OF CASHMERE <BR />BY MAISON BARRIE

    THE ART OF CASHMERE
    BY MAISON BARRIE

    The Barrie knitwear mill in the small town of Hawick, Scotland, joined CHANEL in 2012, twenty-five years after completing its first orders for the company. Their shared creative vision has brought the ancient tradition of the finest cashmere woven in the Scottish borders to CHANEL's iconic two-tone cardigan.

    The Maison Barrie's soft-hued palette offers a range of exclusive colors for the Métiers d'art collections. Its spools in various sizes give an exceptional quality of yarn, while a production method unchanged since the early twentieth century, requiring painstaking accuracy and dexterity, makes the cashmere soft yet strong, giving a knit of outstanding quality. A highly qualified workforce with a skillset that is now rare makes Barrie cashmere knits a true luxury.
