Everyone knows Chanel’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld is a wizard when it comes to staging jet-setting yet an unforgettable show. After many years of jumping from one different city to the other, Lagerfeld took its latest Metiers d’Art collection for a magical show in New York, marking its first show in the city in over a decade.
Taking place at the Upper East Side of Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday night, the runway was a pure inspiration from ancient Egypt with a giant Met’s Temple of Dendur serving as the backdrop.
And let’s not forget about his amazing offering which was an Egyptian-themed collection. Models including Pharrell Williams, Kaia Gerber, and a lot more others were outfitted in gold ensembles with Egyptian-inspired getups as well as Ancient Egyptian symbols:
According to the reports, the music was very Egyptian as the “song called “Egypt, Egypt” by Egyptian Lover, from the album “On the Nile” served as the soundtrack (sample lyrics: Egypt, Egypt, Egypt, Egypt/ Egyptian Lover/ Egyptian Lover, baby/ Egyptian Lover/ Egyptian Lover, baby).” Click on the gallery to see more looks from the collection.
