Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld brought a dazzling touch of Ancient Egypt to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday, staging the seventeenth annual Metiers d’Art show.
Showcased in a different city each year, the eagerly-anticipated presentation – only the second ever to be held at the world-renowned Met – recognises the creative mastery of Chanel’s artistic partners. And boy, did Manhattan's Chanel-clad elite come out in support.
The runway was elegantly peppered with extravagant demi-couture pieces, intricately embroidered jackets, dazzling jewels, paired with striking golden boots and in some instances, gold-painted pins.
The maestro creative director of the French fashion house masterfully blended the old with the new in a clever nod to Manhattan - model-of-the-moment Kaia Gerber sported a refreshing take on the double denim ensemble, which stunned amid a sea of gold and brass.
Pharrell Williams also featured on the catwalk, wearing a gold bouclé jumper paired with an elaborate – and on-theme – Pharaoh-inspired neckpiece. Just last month, Williams announced he was creating a capsule collection for the brand and if the below outfit is anything to go by, we're in for something special.
