Walk like an Egyptian

With the stunning ancient Egyptian temple at NY’s Metropolitan Museum as a backdrop, Chanel’s catwalk took the audience by storm. Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s Egyptian themed collection, featuring glittered tweeds, golden garments and bold jewelry.

Gold, sparkles, animal skin patterns and facial makeup detailed the looks of the models presenting the spectacular collection. The show was an opportunity to highlight craftsmanship and notably the work of embroiderers, goldsmiths, pleaters and milliners.

Coïnciding with a time where the renewal of archeological finds in Egypt is booming,   the French luxury brand’s collection is an elegant homage to the style and fashion flair  of this once-powerful ancient civilization.
