Chanel Lays Foundation Stone for its Métiers d’art Flagship in Paris

Chanel is increasing its commitment to its Metiers d’art with the establishment of a dedicated new site to be completed in the near future in the 19th arrondissement in Paris, as per the brand’s website.“Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel SAS, laid the first foundation stone of the building on Monday, alongside Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris. ‘This remarkable and ambitious project will be a new chapter in the great adventure that Chanel is pleased to have initiated more than 30 years ago: that of perpetuating the Metiers d’art in Paris, near the creation studios.’ — Bruno Pavlovsky,” says the brand’s website.The site where the foundation stone has been laid is the fallow industrial land of Paris’ 19th arrondissement. The Chanel facility will have 15 artisanal craftsmen; from glove makers, feather workers to metal specialists. Reportedly, the building will be designed by Rudy Ricciotti, the architect. Ricciotti has been was behind the MuCEM and the Islamic Arts section of Paris’ Louvre Museum.  Chanel Metiers d’art building is believed to have five floors along with two basements. Chanel Metiers d’art will be ready by 2020 that is when the opening will take place.Chanel has immense respect for its artisans and had paid homage to them through one of their initiatives called, Chanel Metiers d’art. The show was all about talent and pure style. The show traveled far and wide since its launch in 2002. It was last witnessed in Hamburg in December 2017.Paraffection, the crafts specialists have made Chanel what it is in current times. The artisans have contributed their skills for its haute couture and ready-to-wear collection. The house was incepted by Gabrielle Chanel in 1910.Chanel had recently launched its ‘31’ handbag during the Fall-Winter — 2018/19 collection.“The ‘31’ handbag, Fall‑Winter’s signature accessory, was inspired by a bag once owned by Gabrielle Chanel. According to Karl Lagerfeld, its name refers to a French saying. ‘You know that there is special meaning behind it, the expression ‘se mettre sur son 31’ means when one gets dressed up,’” says the website.As per the website, the ‘31’ can be carried in different ways: firmly in hand by its handle or folded like a clutch, or slung across the body. Quilted and generously shaped, it comes in a range of bold colors, from pale pink to red, coral and electric blue, as well as different materials, leather, canvas or tweed.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the related to Chanel Metiers d’art.http://www.blouinartinfo.com Founder: Louise Blouin

Asia Pop Diva Jolin Tsai Flaunts her Bulgari Bag during Milan Fashion Week

Asia pop diva Jolin Tsai was recently spotted toting a flap cover bag —Serpenti Forever by Bulgari while flying for Milan Fashion Week.“Encircled with legend, the seductive serpent is wound tight with the history of humanity. Dating back to ancient Greek and Roman mythology, it is a symbol representing wisdom, vitality and the circle of life. In the 20th century, Bulgari has given new life to this symbol through new interpretations of its design and materials, adopting it as one of the milestones of its style. Since 2011, the snake has become the key feature of a daring, hypnotic and colorful line of bags and accessories, wherein the finely color enameled serpent heads serve as jewel closures. Fine materials, innovative finishing, and captivating seasonal animations distinguish this iconic Bulgari line,” says the official release.Flap cover bag Serpenti Forever comes in silver and antique bronze striped brushed metallic calf leather and black calf leather, brass light gold plated snake head closure in shiny black and white enamel, with eyes in black onyx, as per the release.“Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai has released thirteen studio albums, seven live albums, seven greatest hits albums, four remix albums, three video albums, and one cover album. In 1999, Tsai signed a recording deal with Universal Music Taiwan. The first release under the label was her debut album, ‘1019 ‘(1999). It sold more than 400,000 copies in Taiwan alone. She followed the album with the sophomore release ‘Don’t Stop’ (2000). The album has sold more than 450,000 copies in Taiwan alone, becoming her best selling album in Taiwan. “Show Your Love” was released as her third studio album in 2000 and sold over 260,000 copies in Taiwan alone. Tsai’s fourth studio album “Lucky Number” (2001), sold more than 150,000 copies in Taiwan alone.
