KUSH BOYS STUDIOS FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
The annual Chanel Metier D’Arts premiere took place in the Galerie Courbe at Paris’s Grand Palais Tuesday December 6 with an India-themed luxury show. Models, adorned with accessories including head-jewellery and turbans – also for men – walked the epic runway sporting the 2012 pre-fall collection. Guests sat at banquet tables, which doubled as a runway, complete with chandeliers, opulent candlesticks – and a feast fit for a Maharaja. The Metiers d’Art show was launched in 2003 as a homage to the French label’s workshop, with high-end couture collections. Previous shows have been named Paris-Byzance, Paris-Shanghai and Paris-Moscow. The Paris-Bombay collection will hit Chanel boutiques starting May 2012.
