Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show took location this previous week at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in an region of the museum that is committed to Ancient Egypt, which explains a lot about the inspiration behind Karl Lagerfeld’s most up-to-date collection for Chanel. There was no shortage of golden hues and metallic detailing adorning these bags. Plus, if there is any shape that is most synonymous with Ancient Egypt, it really is a pyramid, so it really is not shocking that Lagerfeld sent a pyramid-shaped mini-bag down the runway as nicely.
Lagerfeld utilized a palette consisting largely of tones of black, gold and a bit of ivory, with some turquoise and blue hues thrown in as well. A lot of clutches have been noticed adorned with metallic hardware and jewels, and as an ode to Coco Chanel herself, the Chanel Gabrielle Bag was re-imagined in a metallic tweed for Pre-Fall 2019.
