15 Things You May Have Missed From Chanel’s Metiers d’Art in Hamburg

Of the sea, sailors and their sweethearts. Here, we pick out the blink-and-miss details, silhouettes and references from last night's incredible show.

Before we begin, it is necessary to understand that Chanel’s Metiers d’Art isn’t technically a pre-fall collection. It is also necessary to understand that Chanel doesn’t do things like everyone else. Such is the Metiers d’Art show, Chanel’s annual affair that turns the spotlight on the precise, intricate work of their craftsmen. This season, Chanel shipped one and all to the city of Hamburg, one of Germany’s busiest ports and Karl Lagerfeld’s birthplace where he spent his youth before sailing to France.

With adventurous waters just a stone’s throw away, Chanel took to the nautical for inspiration. Ships, sailors and their sweethearts back home. The venue was the colossal Elbphilharmonie, one of the biggest and most state-of-art concert halls in the world, complete with an orchestra and chilling music. Chanel’s Metiers d’Art was a runway show no longer – it was a performance. (The show attendees were even given binoculars as if at the opera.)

There were sailor hats and collars, buoys, stripes, raincoats, cruise-ready wide-legged cropped trousers that Mademoiselle Chanel herself would have loved for her many boat trips and chunky knits as far as the eye can see, but there was also a surprise in the form of mod sixties-inspired checked patterns and punchy orange, pinks and blues. Everything was merged together with incredible styling, bound to inspire many in the winter to come. In case you missed it, browse our gallery above for 15 moments worth a second look from Chanel’s Metiers d’Art 2018.
