Chanel brings its 2023/24 Métiers d’Art collection to Manchester on 7 December
Paris, Tokyo and most recently, Dakar, Chanel has unveiled its Métiers d’Art collection in various vibrant cities throughout the years. For the 2023/24 collection, Virginie Viard has chosen Manchester, England as the location for the presentation.
Chanel’s Métiers d’Art collections not only show in the chosen city, but take inspiration from its history and utilise local artisans and craftsmanship in a demonstration of both the Maison’s savoir faire and collaborative spirit. The Métiers d’art collection was first established in 2002 as a vessel to showcase the craftsmanship of Chanel’s specialty ateliers around the world. “This collection bears witness to the historic commitment of Chanel to this exceptional artisanal heritage and its influence around the world,” reads a statement from the Maison.

The Factory International arts centre opened in Manchester earlier this year, further cementing the city’s cultural presence.
