    KARL

    KARL

    Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of the House since 1983.

    "I try to make it not a thing of the past but a reflection of the moment. Chanel is about modern attitude but style, created by Coco, and attitude have to be updated to stay in touch with times and fashion. I keep the classic by adapting it to the mood of the moment, and I always think of Goethe’s famous words that I like so much: "make a better future with enlarged elements of the past".

    OPENING

    For the first time in Singapore, Chanel has just installed a pop-up store within Pedder on Scotts' space. Special displays were created as a backdrop to the Spring‑Summer 2016 Ready‑to‑Wear collection and travel-inspired accessories.

    The Chanel-themed airport terminal, in keeping with the direction of the runway show, displays feature such as a conveyor belt, laden with the new luggage and leather goods collection, and booths manned by mannequins decked out as stewards and stewardesses.

    SILVER TWEED

    SILVER TWEED

    This exclusive tweed of the Spring‑Summer 2016 collection was inspired by the world of travel and flying.

    It requires exceptionally meticulous work: on average, 200 metres of classic tweed are woven per day, as compared with only 7 metres for this one.

    JERSEY

    JERSEY

    "Jersey is the hardest fabric to work with, it’s a poor fabric; Lord, do I know it! I started out with it"* declared Gabrielle Chanel.

    As early as 1913, she chose to work with jersey, a "modest" machine-knit fabric that had hitherto been used mainly for men's undergarments and sailors' T-shirts. Jersey soon became instrumental to her success. Just 3 years after her first designs, an American journalist commented that "Chanel is master of her art, and her art resides in jersey."

    This knit fabric was generally held to be too flowing for close-fitting cuts, but Mademoiselle liked it: it was comfortable and fluid, perfect for her easy-to-wear models whose new approach to the female silhouette became a success.

    *Mademoiselle Chanel quote from "The Allure of Chanel" by Paul Morand (Pushkin Press, 2013 p.52)
