THE MÉTIERS D'ART

CHANEL acquires eight Parisian specialty ateliers to establish PARAFFECTION, a company consisting of Desrues (metalworker), Lemarié (flower and feather craftsmen), Maison Michel (milliner), Maison Lesage (embroiderer), Massaro (shoemaker), Goossens (goldsmith), Guillet (floral accessory expert), and Atelier Montex (embroiderer). In doing so, CHANEL supports the historic arts, and preserves the unique expertise of fashion’s traditional craftsmen.
