A casino decor. A star parterre: the Chanel house made a sensation for its Autumn-Winter Fashion Show presented this Tuesday, July 7, 2015. On the program: a new version of the legendary tailor, made using 3D techniques. Painted, rebroadcast of pearls, lined with satin, dotted with feathers and another embroidery, the tailor, declined at will, displays a look both modern and resolutely chic. “The idea was to take the most iconic jacket of the 20th century and turn it into a 21st-century version, which technically was not even imaginable at the time it was born,” explained Karl Lagerfeld. “The jacket is one piece, there is no stitching, it’s molded,” detailed the fashion Kaiser. An elegant and refined show, until the end: a white satin tuxedo is worn by Kendall Jenner, one of the brand’s leading brands, as a bride.
Invited to the “Cercle Privé”, a playroom reconstructed in the Grand Palais, many personalities completed this staging : actresses Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore, but also Vanessa Paradis accompanied by her daughter Lily-Rose Depp, Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis, son of Isabelle Adjani, Daniel Day-Lewis or Violette d’urso, the daughter of Inès de la Fressange.
Karl Lagerfeld Turns the Grand Palais into a Casino of Stars
Karl Lagerfeld or the art of pushing the boundaries of genres. Once again the artistic director of the Chanel house proves it with his fashion show autumn-winter 2015-16. The collection was unveiled in front of about twenty celebrities in the alleys of the Grand Palais, transformed for the occasion into a giant casino. Dazzling dresses combining traditional know-how and 3D.

Installed around the tables, her close friends played the game in gala attire. Vanessa Paradis, Julianne Moore or Isabelle Huppert, they could admire haute couture dresses sublimated by Platinum and diamonds reissues, feathers and embroidery of Dream.
Lace, Silk or Tweed: Place Your Bets

Karl Lagerfeld’s Baraka
Artistic director of Chanel since 1983, the volubile and talented Karl Lagerfeld leaves nothing to chance but always plays his chance card. This new test inaugurated “Chance Eau vibe” the last perfume of the luxury House released these days in perfumery. For her friend and former model, Inès de la Fressange, this new collection is once again breathtaking: “I believe that Karl Lagerfeld is an alien” she casts like a roulette.
When Traditional Know-How Meets 3D
Today, Chanel workshops mix the most advanced technologies with traditional techniques. Workers spend hours on certain pieces made of feathers and pearls. “It’s a real sewing job done entirely by hand,” explains Nadine Dufait, director of the Lemarié firm. Karl Lagerfeld imagined 3D tailors made according to the technique “selective laser sintering”, they are painted, rebranded with pearls, lined with satin, embroidery, or GANs of leather.
