Chanel to host its Métiers d’Art collection in Salzburg, Austria
After Mumbai, Edinburgh and Dallas, CHANEL‘s annual Métiers d’Art will be hosted by the city of Salzburg in Austria. This city, with its deep appreciation for history and tradition, naturally lends itself CHANEL’s Métiers d’Art collection which brings to the fore the unique expertise of specialist ateliers such as costume jeweller Desrues, feather dresser Lemarié, embroiderers Maison Lesage and Atelier Montex, shoemaker Massaro, milliner Michel and cashmere producer Barrie.
The collection will be presented at the 18th century Schloss Leopoldskron, one of the most notable rococo palaces in Austria. This castle, banked on the shores of Lake Leopoldskroner Weiher, has been inextricably linked to the rich artistic and intellectual life of Salzburg’s society throughout its history, and will provide a spectacular stage for the collection which will be unveiled on 2nd of December 2014.
