Chanel’s annual Metiers d’Arts show took place at Linlithgow Palace, near Edinburgh, Scotland. The brand showed off their Pre-Fall 2013 collection of romantic cozy pieces in lace and Tartan pattern. Models wrapped in shawls and scarves walked the outdoor runway enhanced with several fire pits.
The collection that was apparently inspired by Scotland includes an extensive number of outfits made of fair isle, bouclé, and tartan. Models showcased layered knits, coats and cardigans as well as dresses, skirts, and very beautiful blouses with cuffs and frill.
The extensive collection also includes jackets, trousers, and sweaters. At one point the models demonstrated the outfits similar to those of royalty with the baloon sleeves and puffy skirts. The historic clothes gets reinvented very subtly. The skirts are made of lace, some pieces come in leather, but there is plenty of plaids and other traditional elements.
The outfits were accessorized with patterned tights, furry boots, hats in different styles, jewelry in both clothes and accessories, various shawls and scarves, and mini bags. Models wore their hair up in braided ‘dos decorated with bejeweled accessories.
Stella Tennant opened the show wearing a tartan-decorated coat and a maxi lace skirt. Cara Delevingne, the BFAs’ Model of the Year, who fronted a campaign for Chanel Resort 2013 also walked the Metiers d’Arts show showing two outfits – a plaid costume with a blouse decorated with jabot, and a white sweater and blush skirt with furry boots.
The guests who made it to the Linlithgow Palace included press, fashionistas like Poppy Delevingne and Caroline Sieber. Those who attended reported the blankets tucked under their seats for it was cold and snowing.
The show had a huge success and praise from fashion critics. And it’s no wonder, the collection is quite beautiful and the show was staged, well, in a castle. Take a look at the photos and the video of the show and tell us what you think about Chanel Pre-Fall 2013?
