L'histoire des Métiers d'Art de Chanel

Thank god it’s not always bag, bag and bags at BRAGMYBAG, after 5 days straight of eating pasta, you might want to change your diner to sushi or steak. A special edition of Vogue takes us behind-the-scene of the creation of Chanel Métiers d’Art, with a bit history involved.

The original workshop of Coco Chanel was in Rue Cambon, that’s why it’s one of the ‘must go’ stores in Paris. Did you know that the first iconic buttons were introduced by Georges Desrues, a company founded in 1929. It was Gabrielle’s preferred supplier and up until today, Karl Lagerfeld and his employees continue to pay tribute to the expertise of Desrues. Every single day, 4,000 of buttons are manufacturered.

Recently, flowers have been the heart of Chanel. The camellia patterns are inserted in clothes, earrings, shoes and even in bags. Who doesn’t know the Chanel WOC Collection, the camellia version pops right out from the box.

Hats have been around for a long time, the Maison Michel’s edition is truly an timeless antique, founded in 1936 by Auguste Michel. Today, the Maison Michel is one of Chanel’s Métiers d’Art and is presented in many different pieces.
