In Maison Lemarié's ateliers, feathers are dyed blue and sewn in layers of transparent vinyl. Summoning the motifs of a sailor-style top, these feather bands are then sent to the Chanel ateliers to be assembled.
In a play of transparencies, a sailor dress from the Crociera collection. The feathers are dyed in the shades of red and blue before being finished by hand. Then they are sewn one by one on white silk organza and placed between transparent layers.
The Cruise 2018/19 collection is available in boutiques and on chanel.com
