    JEWELRY BUTTONS FROM <BR />THE MAISON DESRUES

    JEWELRY BUTTONS FROM
    THE MAISON DESRUES

    The buttons and jewelry specialists Maison Desrues create unusual bespoke pieces to designs by Karl Lagerfeld, from cuff bracelets and fingerless gloves set with stones to beads on long necklaces or stitched by the hundred on every inch of a garment. Desrues produces some four thousand buttons a day to adorn CHANEL designs. The craftsmen also cast, sculpt, dye, carve, enamel, and polish stones and settings from Gabrielle Chanel's own jewelry, giving a new lease of life in fresh designs for today's collections. To meet the demands of CHANEL's bespoke creations, the Maison Desrues has embraced new technologies including digital design and laser cutting. Yet the company still holds itself to the highest standards of craftsmanship.

    FEATHERS AND FLORAL ADORNMENTS <BR />BY MAISON LEMARIÉ

    FEATHERS AND FLORAL ADORNMENTS
    BY MAISON LEMARIÉ

    Lemarié, which began working with feathers in Paris in 1880 and expanded to produce artificial flowers in 1946, is now at the heart of Karl Lagerfeld’s designs and also works with many other fashion houses. Working with feathers and flowers offers an infinite range of potential textures and patterns and requires ingenuity and technical flair. It was Maison Lemarié that Gabrielle Chanel turned to when she first came up with her camellia design in the 1960s. The emblematic flower blooms anew each season in Karl Lagerfeld’s sketches.

    Though expert in flowers and feathers, Lemarié excels in the subtle inlaying, cascades of flounces, pleats and sophisticated smocking in a range of shapes and textures, from organza to velvet, leather to tweed and and satin.

    THE ELBPHILHARMONIE

    THE ELBPHILHARMONIE

    The Elbphilharmonie concert hall standing on the bank of the river Elbe in the old port area of Hamburg, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the city’s new cultural landmark. It was designed by the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron and symbolizes the past, the present, and the future. Built atop the original brick walls of a former cocoa warehouse, the glass structure has a roof in the shape of waves, rising to a height of 110 meters. This scale of the edifice echoes that of the ocean-going vessels berthed opposite in the port. Its strange silhouette stands out in this very horizontal city. The glass facade, made up partly of curved window panels, makes it look like a giant crystal set over the old buildings. This new building is the showcase venue for the Paris‑Hamburg 2017/18 Métiers d’art show.

    THE ART OF PLEATING BY <BR />THE MAISON LOGNON

    THE ART OF PLEATING BY
    THE MAISON LOGNON

    The Maison Lognon allies traditional craft skills and digital technology in its cutting-edge techniques. Its deft-fingered experts create elaborate interplays of volume in flat expanses of fabric in a highly demanding process that requires painstaking accuracy and detailed knowledge of the characteristics of each material. Perfect pleating takes unspoken coordination and perfect fingertip synchronisation from two pleaters working together.

    Over the decades, Lognon has worked with a wide range of fabrics, from silk, crepe, tulle, and chiffon to organza, velvet and leather. It has developed its own specialist jargon: reclining, flat, hollow, round, accordion, Watteau, sunburst, and Fortuny are all types of pleating mastered by Lognon, shedding light on the history of technical innovations in fashion. The company's history is still being written, as Lognon works closely with the CHANEL Studio, since it joined CHANEL's Métiers d’art in 2013.

    MAISON LESAGE

    The deft-fingered embroiderers of Maison Lesage are the guardians of an enduring, unique craft that has been passed down through the generations for almost 160 years, illuminating the Haute Couture collection and other designs made in Paris. Rhinestone, ribbons, beads and cabochons create exceptional patterns, trompe l’oeils, reflections, textures, illuminations, and hues that enhance the fabric and cut of garments from CHANEL’s own ateliers.
