Chanel at Colette

Chanel at Colette

1069

Loyal to colette ever since it opened in 1997, Karl Lagerfeld is giving us an exceptional month at the legendary concept store on the rue Saint Honoré, a few weeks before it closes its doors. From October 30th to November 25th 2017, colette will be moving to rhythm of CHANEL as it takes up residence on the first floor to recreate its own universe, with a dreamlike scenography and previously unseen happenings.
On entry the visitors are invited to plunge into a décor inspired by the 2017/18 Cruise collection “The Modernity of Antiquity”, it deploys an Ariadne’s thread in ecru canvas draped around the entire space. Silhouettes from the Fall-Winter 2017/18 Ready-to-Wear collection will be shown from October 30th, to be joined later by others from the 2017/18 Cruise collection from November 6th. Barrie, the brand renowned for its savoir-faire in cashmere will also be showing a selection of knitwear pieces from its Fall-Winter 2017/18 collection.
The Ready-to-Wear space is organised around three central themes: day, which puts the accent on colours and prints, night and its sophisticated dresses, and finally sport with its chic relaxed looks. Within this sinuous drapery, organic niches in Plexiglas provide the showcases for Ready-to-Wear pieces and accessories. Original products available as limited-edition series will also be on offer throughout the month of November: t-shirts created by Karl Lagerfeld, a compilation of music made by Michel Gaubert and, at the end of the event, adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS Hu NMD customised by Pharrell Williams especially for CHANEL at colette.
During the month, numerous happenings will be taking place; notably, the 3.55 – the CHANEL at colette podcast, where journalist Daphné Hézard will welcome friends of CHANEL, celebrated artists from the worlds of film, literature, music and dance, every Tuesday and Thursday. Caroline de Maigret, ambassador and spokesperson for the House, will be doing a talk on style and allure. CHANEL’s Creative Makeup and Color Designer Lucia Pica will be sharing her vision of beauty in a beauty talk. A live action painting by Futura 2000 as well as make-up tutorial workshops held every Friday with a presentation of the CHANEL NEAPOLIS Spring-Summer 2018 collection and a showcase concert by the French-Cuban group Ibeyi, will also be on the program.
By combining the worlds of fashion, beauty and music, CHANEL at colette signs a creative and modern mix & match, reflecting the image of the House.
For this exceptional event, profits from the CHANEL at colette operation will be donated to charity organisations supported by the CHANEL Foundation.
