Karl Lagerfeld has been presenting Chanel‘s Métiers d’Art collection every December since 2002, with past locations that have included Edinburgh and past themes that have been inspired by India, Shanghai and the Ottoman Empire. This season, it was Dallas, Texas – the fashion house’s first show in North America. Over 90 looks walked under a gorgeous canopy of flags at Dallas’ historic Fair Park. But first, seventy-four restored vintage automobiles were parked in front of four giant drive-in movie screen for the premier of the film The Return. Then collection celebrated the American West with blanket-pattern knit stoles, ponchos, fringed skirts, white prairie tops, black sheriff ties, and civil war inspired hats by Maison Michel. Native Texan Erin Wasson walked the runway carrying bottles of Chanel No.5 in her gun holsters. Honestly, don’t mess with Texas!
