Karl Lagerfeld’s much anticipated Chanel Metiers d’Art show was unveiled yesterday, with a spectacular reception. The show was set in the ruins of Linlithgow Palace, the 15th century birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, near Edinburgh, Scotland.
The Palace encircled the catwalk, adorned with fire beacons in relation to the ruin’s medieval past. Models Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell and Stella Tennant walked the catwalk in tartan, tweed and embellished fair isle.
Alexandra Schulman, Editor of UK Vogue said, “Karl’s interpretation of traditional Scottish dress was exquisite and imaginative and to say the setting was magical is a huge understatement.”
