Tilda Swinton Chanel Paris Edinburgh

Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Tilda Swinton to be his heroine in the advertising campaign for the 2012-13 Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg collection. Her unique personality, charisma and allure have charmed the House of CHANEL: “Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection. She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance,” declared Karl Lagerfeld.”

The campaign will be public come May 2013.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Set at Linlithgow Palace

chanel paris edinburgh linlithgow palace

We’ve come to expect extravagant sets for Chanel presentations and it doesn’t get much more dramatic than Linlithgow Palace in Scotland at dusk. Chanel showed its Metiers d’Art Paris-Edinburgh collection in the courtyard of Linlithgow palace with models circling the courtyard as guests watched swathed in their lap blankets provided by Chanel. No expense was spared in creating the atmosphere and for one brief moment in time, Linlithgow Palace was full of life once again.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg Beauty

chanel paris edinburgh metiers d'art

When I saw the models walking down the runway for the Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg show, the first thought that came to mind was Mary Queen of Scots. When I learned that the presentation would take place at Linlithgow palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, I wanted to learn more about the tragic queen because I had a hunch that Karl Lagerfeld would be inspired by her. Looking at the red hair of many of the models and the upswept hair, it was hard not to see the similarities to the portraits of Mary Queen of Scots. The pale skin and the flushed cheeks evoked the cold weather of the Scottish Highlands and should be an easy look to replicate – especially in the fall and winter months.  I also loved the winding braids that evoked Renaissance hairstyles.

Here’s a rundown of the products Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:

Skin prepared with HYDRA BEAUTY SERUM Hydration Protection Radiance

Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg Prefall 2013 Collection

chanel metiers d'art paris edinburgh prefall 2013

The Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg Prefall 2013 Collection was presented in the dark mist of Scotland in Linlithgow Palace. The collection was a study in Scottish Highland dress – traditional motifs like Tartan, Argyle and Fair Isle were worn with a sophistication that only Chanel could conjure. Layering was a key element of the collection with Lagerfeld piling on scarves, sweaters and coats all in a mix of plaid patterns and tweeds. Nods to traditional Highland Dress were also seen in the accessories such as flasks, belts, bonnets and sporran and in details that evoked kilts. Footwear included ghillie brogues, Dr. Martens-type boots and fur covered boots – all of the shoes and boots were flats.

There was also an element of Renaissance style in the collection that was seen in the white blouses with elaborate bow ties paired with plus fours (traditional golf pants) and bubble skirts reminiscent of men’s Renaissance dress. The final pieces in the collection were a nod to the royal dress of Mary Queen of Scots and models looked as if they walked out of the 16th century with details like funnel sleeves, lace collars and jabots.

The Métiers d’Art collections are my favorite because they are a celebration of the ateliers that Chanel has acquired through Paraffection to keep these skills and traditions alive. The ateliers include the milliner Maison Michel, the shoemaker Massaro, the costume jeweler Desrues, the embroiderer Maison Lesage, the feather dresser Lemarié, the embroiderer Atelier Montex, the goldsmith Goossens and the newly acquired glovemaker Causse.

Live music was provided by Jake Bugg.
