Come December, it will be all things Karl as the meister prepares for his ultra-luxe Chanel Métiers d’Art fashion show — really a performance — in Dallas! Venue to be determined. Date to be determined. Excitement confirmed. Chanel’s Métiers d’Art runway show is a once-a-year extreme production designed to showcase the finest of Chanel’s creations. Previous extravaganzas have been set in the ruins of Linlithgow Palace in Scotland, where Mary Queen of Scots was born. For another Métiers, Lagerfeld seated a thousand guests on a darkened pontoon boat in the Huangpu River overlooking the skyline of Shanghai. And then there were the shows in Moscow, Versailles and Venice. And now Dallas. Chanel Métiers d’Art coming December 2013; chanel.com.
