Paris-Salzburg Pre-Fall 2015 Women’s Collection December 2, 2014 Karl Lagerfeld staged his latest Chanel Métiers d’Art show in the sumptuous Leopoldskron Castle in Austria. Guests were invited to one of three shows and served brunch, tea or dinner. Have a look at this sumptuous new Pre-Fall 2015 collection. Salzburg was already an appropriately fairy-tale backdrop—jewel of Baroque architecture, birthplace of Mozart, setting for The Sound of Music (Liesl and Rolf duetted on “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” in the Schloss’ gazebo)—but Lagerfeld spun his own Mitteleuropa fantasy as his models with their gilded eyelids moved through rococo salons lit by candles. The capelets, frogged jackets, and side-striped trousers echoed a Viennese military academy. It was one of those jackets, transmuted into the uniform of a hotel page in Salzburg’s Mittersill Hotel, that inspired Chanel’s signature little black jacket (though it was more often white, Lagerfeld pointed out). There were plenty of them in the show, too. And where would Mitteleuropa be without loden green? Here is a section of our favorite pieces from this collection, enjoy the full show on Style.com.
