Chanel plans shows for New York, Rome and Seoul this year
Lagerfeld on tour
The Chanel carnival doesn't do things by halves, so it comes as no surprise that the iconic luxury French fashion house plans to stage three separate shows in three separate countries this year.
Announcing its plans to host shows in New York, Rome and Seoul – Chanel will first revisit its Paris-Salzburg show held last month in Austria, and take it to New York for both VIP clients and press. The Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne-coveted Métiers d’arts collection – in layman's terms Pre-Fall 15 (although notably extra luxurious, since it is embellished by the specialty couture ateliers Chanel owns) – will be available in stores from May.
The president of Chanel fashion – Bruno Pavlovsky – also recently revealed in an interview that the Chanel Cruise show will be held at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, or DDP, a futuristic development designed by architect Zaha Hadid and Samoo, in Seoul, South Korea.
Chanel is no stranger to the DDP, after staging its Culture Chanel exhibition there last autumn titled The Sense of Places.
Lastly, the Eternal City in Rome will be Lagerfeld's next Métiers d’arts collection showcase in December 2015.
