Chanel Metiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg 2012/13 show

Here’s an exclusive backstage pass to the Chanel Metiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg 2012/13 show, at Linlithgow Palace (the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots in 1542), Kirkgate Linlithgow, on Tuesday December 4th. Karl Lagerfeld debuted his annual collection and paid homage to Coco Chanel by taking Chanel’s classic designs to a fresh and modern level inspired by Scottish patterns. Staying true to Coco’s philosophy, this show not only glorified the tweeds and knits, but was also an “anti-stiletto” collection, noted Lagerfeld backstage. Mixing wools, tartan and plaids with lace and chiffon, the collection beautifully juxtaposed the past and the present. The collection celebrated the newly-acquired Barrie knitwear Mill, with Lagerfeld being inspired by Scotland’s “romantic and barbarian” spirit.
