All the latest fashion news for women and men
Crafty knits, sumptuous tweed jackets and fuzzy outerwear are just some of the looks Chanel has in store for autumn, so get ready to warm up your wardrobe
Dallas, Edinburgh, Dubai and Moscow were just a few of the cities that Chanel selected to showcase the illustrious Chanel Métiers d’art presentations. This year, Karl Lagerfeld waltzes us through Salzburg, Austria, to the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron, a former palace. In addition to incorporating elements from the rich heritage of the Austro-hungarian empire, the maison also notes that it was on a trip to Austria that Mademoiselle Chanel was inspired to design her iconic tweed jacket. Alpine florals and animals are precisely placed on pinaforeand dirndl-style dresses, coat collars and even the cult-favourite Boy bags. Rows of ruffles with pearl chokers adorn the high necklines of blouses, which peer out of various outerwear looks. The delicate finishing touches aren’t overlooked, either—hand-crafted brooches portray antique wall clocks and cable cars, while lace-up mountaineering boots include a series of gold charms depicting everything from Austrian beer steins to baby deer.
