Presented against the background of the ancient Temple of Dendur at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chanel transported guests to Egypt for a night for its 2018/19 Métiers d'art runway show. From sleek silhouettes to the use of the scarab beetle, here's a rundown of some of our favourite details from the collection.
Looks from the collection featured a reinterpretation of Egyptian paintings. These were made using delicately inlaid feathers in deep red, black and blue. The design was created by the House of Lemarié, part of Chanel's Métiers d'art portfolio of speciality ateliers. They also produce the house's iconic camellia flowers.
Pieces were designed to feature simple lines with geometric shapes for a sleek, feminine look. Wide belts and plastron collars emphasized the waist and shoulders.
