CHANEL GOES SHANGHAI: Karl Lagerfeld’s latest Metier D’Arts collection for Chanel will be unveiled on Dec. 3 in Shanghai, where the French house has just opened a new boutique in the Peninsula Hotel.

This is the eighth Metier D’Arts collection to follow previous events in Paris, Tokyo, New York, Monaco, London and Moscow – all locations that have a link with Chanel. Although Coco Chanel never visited China, she developed a strong interest in Asian arts and antiques, so Lagerfeld decided to bring to life the collection she never had a chance to create.

The Metier D’Arts collections were established in 2002 after Chanel acquired seven specialist Parisian ateliers that have collaborated with the house for decades, including Desrues, Lemarie, Lessage, Massaro, Michel, Goossens and Guillet.
