Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel Skipping Over to Scotland
Karl Lagerfeld, the most well dressed vampire of our modern times (sorry, Rob Pattinson) and Chanel fashion designer, has announced plans to stage his Chanel Métiers d’Art show in Scotland this year.

And just because you can copy-paste “Chanel Detiers d’Art” into a text box in Google Translate (“The Chanel Art Trade”) doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in the know enough to attend.

The exclusive and highly acclaimed spectacular—it pays tribute to the fashion house’s ten ateliers and rare passed-down-through-the-generations craftsmanship techniques—is setting itself up at a secret location just outside of Edinburgh.

Edinburg, with its grand and goth architecture surrounded by rocky Wuthering Heights hilltops should provide the perfect backdrop for whatever dramatic and, like Karl, basically out-of-touch with reality theme he dreams up for the elaborate event…and we can’t wait, obviously.

Previous years have seen the designer take the international traveling show through Paris, Tokyo, New York, Shanghai, and London—all with clear themes like opulent Bombay and Turkish tea shops—featuring decorative banquet tables fashioned with expensive plates lit by candelabras.

While no more than what feels like 4% of information has been released regarding the magical event, there seems to be a connection between choosing Scotland and the fashion house’s acquisition of Barrie Knitwear, the company that has been providing its cashmere to Chanel for over two decades.

Anyway, how much is a one-way ticket to Scotland in December again? Asking for a friend...
