Chanel showcased its latest Métiers d’art collection, with a three-day festival highlighting Dakar-based creatives in music, cinema, and art.
The French fashion luxury brand made history by stepping its toes on African soil by being the first European fashion brand to stage a Fashion Show in Sub-Saharan Africa. The event took three years to develop in collaboration with Senegalese artisans, musicians, writers, dancers, models, and many others.
The 2023 Métiers d’art collection tells the story of artistic interactions during the previous three years and was influenced by the 70s spirit. The array comes in a warm color palette and detailed craftsmanship combined with floral designs, multicolored tweeds, geometric forms, sequins, and glittering pendants.
The three-day festival took off on Tuesday (December 6) saw performances from Senegalese artist Obree Daman, and Nigerian singer CKay. The festival was attended by Pharrell Williams, Naomi Campbell, Whitney Peak, Nile Rodgers, Princess Caroline of Monaco, her daughter Charlotte Casiraghi and many fashion devotees.
