The Making of The Embroidered Book Tote Bag

Presented at the Spring-Summer 2018 Ready-to-Wear show, this version of the Dior Book Totebag carried by one of the models lends a laidback and summery allure. Its shimmering colors and graphic motifs are inspired by Mexican crafts. In total, over fifteen shades of green, orange, red, fuchsia, violet and blue clash and combine to form a uniquely hypnotic design. Conceived and developed in the house’s design studio in Paris, this fully-embroidered bag was produced in a family-run atelier located in the region of Umbria, also known as “Italy’s green heart”.   A single bag requires more than thirty-two hours of work and over one million two hundred thousand stitches. In addition, this bag necessitated three different kinds of embroidery stitch....

Chanel Métiers d’art Paris-Hamburg 2018

Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Hamburg and the Elbphilharmonie to present the new CHANEL Métiers d’art collection.  An extraordinary building conceived by the architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, this concert hall sits majestically by the river like a futuristic liaison with the city’s industrial port.     Past, present and future. The three units of time that have inspired Karl Lagerfeld for this Paris-Hamburg collection. Around these three axes, the designer infuses images of the Hamburg port, with gliding silhouettes of the merchant navy crew that he disrupts with the modernism of CHANEL. He revisits their wardrobe, re-appropriating their pea coats, their drop-front trousers, sweaters and immutable caps. While the spirit of Gabrielle Chanel – she who stole the striped sailor top...

Viktor & Rolf’s first collection of Haute Joaillerie

Viktor & Rolf’s first collection of Haute Joaillerie is an intimate ode to spiritual glamour. Custom-made bracelets and rings each endowed with their own life-force.     The power of transformation: the jewellery designs are based on the healing energy that is generated when precious and semi-precious stones are in direct contact with the skin, ultimately unfolding their curative properties directly upon the wearer.

Settles Down with Dior Matte Pre-Fall 2018

Several seasons of aesthetic upheaval have given way to classic, traditional looks from Dior   A lot has been happening on the aesthetic front at Dior in the past several seasons. Celebrated designer Raf Simons left unexpectedly and took his sleek, feminine futurism with him, after which the brand appointed Maria Grazia Chiuri, half of the duo responsible for Valentino's gangbusters success over the last decade. It was immediately clear that Chiuri's vision for Dior was different from Simons' in many ways: it was far more casual, it had a decidedly more vintage feel, even the use of color was world's apart. (Simons tended toward brights or pastels in his time at Dior; Chiuri prefers dark neutrals, theming an entire recent collection around navy.) In that...

NANTUCKET JETÉ DE DIAMANTS BY HERMES

Diamonds break out of the mould as the miniature Nantucket appears in a whirl of sparkling radiance. At its birth in 1991, this model was fitted with a rectangular case featuring the “Anchor Chain” motif created by Henri d’Origny who had been asked to design a square shape.     Continuing the saga of an aesthetic rebellion, this “Très Petit Modèle” further accentuates the outline of the original design and celebrates diamonds for daily wear, dotted around as if the wind had scattered them across the watch.
