Chanel Will Stage Métiers d’Art Show In Paris In December
PARIS, FRANCE — French luxury house Chanel will unveil its next Métiers d’Art collection in the City of Light on Dec. 7.
Traditionally a traveling show that has alighted in destinations including Shanghai; Rome; Edinburgh, Scotland; Salzburg, Austria, and Dallas, the Métiers d’Art show was held in Paris in December 2019 in the wake of the death of Chanel’s longtime creative director Karl Lagerfeld earlier in the year. The show was filmed in France in 2020 at Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley.
With the Grand Palais undergoing renovations ahead of the Summer Olympics in Paris in 2024, it’s unclear where Chanel will hold the show next December. A temporary venue has been erected near the Eiffel Tower to host events that usually take place in the Grand Palais, including the Fiac art fair and the Saut Hermès show-jumping competition.
However, Chanel creative director Virginie Viard has indicated she prefers more intimate venues, choosing to stage her fall 2021 haute couture show earlier this month, the first with a physical audience in 18 months, at the Palais Galliera fashion museum.
