CHANEL opens up the opportunity where Paris and Dallas can meet in fashion. An invitation was sketched by Karl Lagerfeld that reads: ‘Coco Chanel back in Dallas’, the fashion show took place on 10th December at Dallas Fair Park.
This event is to celebrate the strong connection between French designer and the United States, as Gabrielle Chanel once stated: ‘I admire and love America, it’s where I made my Fortune’. And now 56 years later, Karl Lagerfeld retrace the steps of Coco by introducing the Paris-Dallas Métiers d’ art 2013 collection, inspired by the traditional cowboy culture.
Traditional cars were included in the drive-in, where the movie ‘The Returned’ was also premiered. The runway was tuned into a cowboy stadium and flags of America and France were hanging on the roof, creating a spectacular sphere.
Classic bags stitched with fringes and Chanel canned clutches in brown-rust and blue paint are just a few bags that you will find the collection. Minaudiere clutches are glued with used and vintage coins, taking you back to the Dallas-Cowboy era. As final, a large duffle bag is going to be released, enriched on the front with a petite clutch bag.
