The Chanel Métiers d’Art Runway Was a Study in Easy Holiday Makeup
Each year, the Chanel Métiers d’Art show delivers a jolt of sumptuous glamour worthy of the holiday season. This year’s runway took place in Dakar, Senegal (the house’s first-ever show in Africa), and the departure harkened an arrival of bold, textured, and abundant looks accompanied by easy beauty. Basically, the ideal antidote to the winter’s bitter cold.
The Chanel Métiers d’Art collection is the product of an ongoing creative collaboration between creative director Virginie Viard and a cadre of artistically minded conspirators—musicians, choreographers, directors, but mostly friends—with the resulting looks borne of a similar sort of tapestry. The floral embroidery, sequins, feathers, geometrics, colorful tweeds, ample pearls, pendants, and camellias merged to ooze Chanel, particularly when grounded by the insouciant beauty synonymous with the brand’s Parisian home.
