  6. It's from Paris-Monte Carlo 2007/08, the Metiers D'art collection.

    This is quite pricey as it's crafted by Haute Couture artisans from Paraffection, a company that gathers 5 companies, Desrues for ornamentation, Lemarié for feathers and camellias, Lesage for embroideries, Massaro for shoes, and Michel for millinery. Paraffection is usually used for Chanel's Haute Couture collections only, but Karl Lagerfeld created a Pret-a-Porter collection in December 2003 called the Metiers D'art. It's basically a collection of ready to wear made by Haute Couture artisans. Each December the Chanel team would travel to a certain country to showcase this collection. Paris in 2003, Tokyo in 2004, New York in 2005, Monte-Carlo in 2006 and the latest one was in London, called the Paris-Londres Collection.

    The Metiers D'art collection is available at Chanel Boutiques in June every year, before Pre-fall.

    Hope that answers your question.
