CHANEL has unveiled a series of photographs clicked in Manchester by British photographer Jamie Hawkesworth, just before the 2023/24 Métiers d’art show taking place in the city. Under the creative direction of CHANEL ambassador Sofia Coppola, the pictures featured a group of young Mancunians in the first silhouettes of the collection by Virginie Viard.
A black T-shirt dress features an embroidered crest, while a fine velvet jersey sweater is embellished with a pleated plastron dotted with tweed ribbons. Jackets in multicolour Lesage tweed, woven with denim ribbons or bouclette threads in shades of pink, are worn with matching caps, while knitted looks in pastel tones rub shoulders with CHANEL suits in shimmering nuances of pop red, mustard yellow and lilac.
The film of the show will be unveiled on Friday, December 8, at 9:00 am Manchester time (10:00 am Paris time) on chanel.com.
