Shanghai China is a city we are currently in envy of. Not only is is recently the home to to the latest Chanel flagship store, as we blogged about earlier, but on December 3, 2009 the new Chanel store played home to a very special film premiere. The film, directed by Karl Lagerfeld himself, was created for the 2009 Metiers d’Arts collection.
This rare treat is produced only once a year by Chanel, and honours the ateliers and craftsmen of Paris. It features complex quilting, embroidery and hats that are trademarks of ateliers that have been a trademark of Chanel. Prepare to also see extended riffs on Mao-Jackets and courtesan dresses. The film titled Paris-Shanghai A fantasy, the Trip Coco Only Made in Her Dreams depicts Coco Chanel dreaming of the city after falling asleep in her Rue Cambon apartment.
Similar to the new store, Coco’s apartment is the inspiration for the new film.
