The cavernous chamber of the Galerie Courbe in the Grand Palais was temporarily transformed into a magical backdrop for Chanel‘s new Metiers d’art collection, inspired by India’s Maharajas and lavish palaces. Tables were set with tiers of fruits, sweets, and flowers. Models, with khol-rimmed eyes, donned jeweled tikkas down the middle of dreadlocked hair. And this is just a sliver of the many extravagant details. Check out the beautiful footage below and see how pieces from the collection came together at embroidery house Lesage and button and jewelry atelier Desrues.
