Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Show Invitation

We’re getting closer to the date of the Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Show and Chanel has just released an image of the invitation – not to be confused with AN invitation. The Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Show Invitation features an illustration by Karl Lagerfeld of Linlithgow Palace in his signature style. No real clues as to the collection so we’ll have to wait and see.

Versailles de CHANEL Cruise 2012/13 Makeup Collection Preview

Versailles de Chanel makeup collection

Images have started surfacing online of the lovely compact Chanel has produced for the Versailles de Chanel Cruise 2012/13 makeup collection. The compact features an embossed relief of an architectural detail from the Château de Versailles. Based on a post I did back in May, I was able to find some of the other products used to create the runway look that are already part of Chanel’s makeup collection namely Chanel Le Vernis in Tendresse, Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Pétale and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Evasion. A limited edition eye color was created for the collection but as far as I can tell, no images have been released – though we can tell that it will be a rose color. For the full list of products used by Peter Philips to achieve the runway look visit my previous post – Chanel Cruise 2012/13 Show Beauté.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Update & Predictions

mary queen of scots coco chanel

The internet is abuzz with rumor of who is going to be at the upcoming Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg on December 4th. We know Karl’s muses and Les Fidèles de Chanel will probably be in attendance but most people are wondering whether Chanel’s latest brand ambassador – Brad Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie – will be in attendance. I have no word but we can only guess at this point.

Chanel Tents Linlithgow Palace Edinburgh Scotland

Photos from the Telegraph and Herald Scotland

What we do know is that Chanel has posted up twelve tents outside Linlithgow Palace. I’m thinking this area is the backstage/production areas as Chanel has stated that the show will take place within the walls of the palace. Some have surmised the show would take place in the Palace’s courtyard – in much the same way that the Cruise 2013 show was show in the gardens at Versailles. Scotland can be chilly this time of year and Chanel has been rumored to have commissioned a glass roof for the Palace courtyard.

And since we’re on the topic of rumor and speculation, I thought I would throw out some ideas of what we may see on December 4th. Coco Chanel’s connection to Scotland is through the Duke of Westminster with whom she had an affair in the 1920′s. She often borrowed from menswear and always found inspiration in her lovers’ closets. From the Duke of Westminster she found tweed, cashmere and bold jewels (in the form of lavish gifts). She also spent much of her time in Scotland outdoors and especially loved horseback riding and fishing. Based on Coco Chanel’s experiences in Scotland and the recent purchase of Barrie Knitwear, I presume we will see a lot of knitwear, as well as tweed and sporting influences accompanied by eye-catching jewelry and accessories we have to come to expect from a Chanel show.

Since the presentation will take place within the walls of Linlithgow Palace I think there is a chance that Karl Lagerfeld will be inspired by Mary Queen of Scots since the palace was her birthplace. As we saw in the Chanel Resort 2013 collection at Versailles, Karl Lagerfeld was influenced by the fashions of Marie Antoinette. I could see Karl Lagerfeld taking inspiration from Mary Queen of Scots – especially the large white collars she wore – as Coco Chanel herself was inspired by them. We’ll know for sure next week.
