We want to celebrate with the king of luxury: Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld
Paris Fashion Week is almost over and once again Chanel has sparked massive attention with Kaiser Karl’s brand new idea. After the supermarket, the casino or the airport, it is Chanel’s digital fashion show that is raging. In order to wow people for the spring-summer 2017 show, Chanel has chosen to turn the Grand Palais into a data storage center of sorts with giant computer processors forming aisles through the space.
A good way for Karl Lagerfeld and his team to express Chanel’s new vision of fashion: the future will be all about digital. Thus Chanel has succeeded to deal with one of the burning current issue: how are we going to adapt our tradition and heritage to the digital crucial omnipresence?
Trends come and go, but when it comes to creating a timeless look that never loses its appeal, some brands nail it on the head.

In this research study, we will look into the historical pricing of Chanel handbags, with a focus on the Medium Classic Flap Bag which has been on sale since 1955 and as such provides us with the best historical data. We will also take a closer look at how pricing has progressed for a number of popular Chanel handbags over the last six years to gain an insight into how Chanel implements their pricing structure. Using this data we will compare Chanel handbags to a number of other commodities to see its potential as an investment piece.
Pharrell Williams, a close friend of the House of CHANEL and personal friend of Karl Lagerfeld affirms his attachment to the House and its Métiers d’art.
Last March, a few days after attending the Fall-Winter 2016/17 Ready-to- Wear show at the Grand Palais, the multi-talented artist spent a day with the craftsmen whose expertise and skill are unique to the Métiers d’art of CHANEL.
Through the exceptional work of the embroiderer Lesage, the feathers and flowers maker Lemarié, the pleater Lognon, the shoe maker Massaro and the hat maker Maison Michel, Pharrell Williams was able to plunge to the very heart of their creative processes and take part in the creation of these unique pieces from the Métiers d’art Paris in Rome 2015/16 collection. They will be available in boutiques from June 2016.
