CHANEL Paris-Dallas Métiers D’Art goes to Tokyo

Hamburgers, baseball, TV commercials featuring Hollywood celebrities … it’s no secret that Japan has the ongoing obssession with everything American, dating back to the mid-1800’s when the Land of the Rising Sun first opened its doors to the American traders. 

Perhaps, the never-ending predilection on all things Americana has gotten Parisian maison CHANEL to stage its Paris-Dallas Métiers D’Art show in Tokyo. 

Held at the Toranomon Hills, the show was attended by CHANEL ambassadress Alice Dellal, Texan supermodel and fashion icon Jerry Hall, K-Pop star G-Dragon, Japanese actresses Yu Yamada, Melisa Kuroki, Aya Omasa, Fumi Nikaido and Asami Mizukawa, singer Mika Nakashima, DJ Mademoiselle Julia and musician Verbal, just to list a few.

Within the replicated space located within the heart of Tokyo, surrounded by green spaces of the Imperial Palace, Hibiya, Atagoyama and Shiba Parks, models stepped into a décor that was constructed to resemble a traditional western saloon. 

Dappled in the maison’s mainstay working palette of white, beige, red and prairie hues sich as browns, grays, and wheat with a tinge of blush pink, the Paris-Dallas Métiers D’Art collection features romantic elements of the Wild West but with a contemporary twist.

Flared and straight skirts hitting mid-calf, snappy cocktail dresses, long-flowing gowns, sculpted or loose suit hackets, capes and ponchos reflect the easy yet effortless style. 

These pieces are meticulously and artisanally crafted using delicate yet lush materials such as satin, lace, and tweed, all are flawlessly embellished with key detailing such as fringes, plates, ruffles and the star motif. 

Accessories such as bolo tie, hats, and tribal feather, just to name  a few, punctuate the looks, bringing forth the authentic Wild Western style. Following suit, guests attended the cocktail party enhanced by the western saloon décor mood.

CHANEL Paris-Dallas Métiers D’Art collection is available now at all Chanel stores worldwide.
