Behold Chanel’s ‘Paris Shanghai’ Collection – 7/12/09

Last week, we drew your attention to the upcoming launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s Shanghai-inspired Metier D’Arts collection for Chanel (see the MO Down for November 30th). And now we have news on its launch, held on December 3rd.

According to an article in the Telegraph, this collection was inspired by an imaginary voyage to Shanghai by Coco Chanel. It paid tribute to Chinese fashion and heritage, with many dresses a modern version of the Mandarin ‘qipao’ gown, and accessories such as face-framing hats and embroidered felt “Chinese warrior’ boots. An impressive show indeed, which should put Shanghai’s new Chanel boutique on the map…
