On this brisk December evening, Manchester’s Northern quarter has been taken over by a slew of A-list celebrities, who have descended onto the northern city to witness Chanel’s annual Métiers d’Art showcase.
Dedicated to celebrating Chanel’s supreme craftspersonship and the artisans behind the brand, Chanel’s Métiers d’Art takes place every December in a different location. Gracing the Le19M in Paris last year, the show garnered guests including Lily-Rose Depp and Kristen Stewart.
This year, guests include Alexa Chung and Tilda Swinton who styled elegant tweed to the highly anticipated event. Set in one of the UK’s cultural epicentres, guests rifted off the city’s creativity, brining an experimental edge to the styling on their front row looks.
