Chanel Métiers d'Art 2013 'Paris-Edimbourg' show at Linlithgow Palace

Chanel's 2013 Métiers d'Art show took place at Linlithgow Palace, the ancient family seat of the Stuart family, where Mary Queen of Scots was born. A platform for Karl Lagerfeld's most prodigious haute-couture fantasies, the now legendary Métiers d'Art (a French term coined to encompass the Arts and Crafts) is Chanel's annual pre-fall range. Given the location, the 2013 collection was unapologetically Scottish. Sitting around an atmospheric medieval catwalk circling baskets of bonfires within the roofless ruins of Linlithgow, guests (whose seats were supplied with Chanel blankets to shield the chill, no less) were whisked away on a highland fling that saw tweeds and tartan, Fair Isle knitwear, sporran-inspired bags and argyle tights steering a collection that was also in part dedicated to Mary Stuart herself - one couldn't miss the oversized feather ruffs and the regal white gowns.
