Buro 24/7 Exclusive: Chanel Métiers d'Art 'Dallas-Paris' 13/14 Backstage
Paris goes West
Karl Lagerfeld chose Dallas, Texas for this year's staging of Chanel's annual Métiers d'Art show, in homage to the city that welcomed Mademoiselle Coco Chanel in her post-war return to the fashion industry, when Paris shunned her.
In respect for the location, the collection was peppered with cowboy chic fringing, and wild-west influence, Chanel style.
In terms of beauty, the inspiration translated into textured hair by guru Sam McKnight – parted down the center and topped with a hat or feathered accessory.
For make-up, Peter Philips created metallic face art to complement the collection. He started off with the brand's new Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation (in stores next year), and the Éclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen to perfect the skin. Eyes were shaded with neutral hues from the Quadra Eye Shadow in Tissé Gabrielle, and he lined them using the Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Noir Intense.
