Chanel Métiers d’Art collections

As Chanel brings multiple collections every year, that also go by different names, we are often asked the question what the difference is between them and how many there are exactly. This is the first article in a series that highlights and explains more about the Chanel collections


The traveler

'The traveler' is a KERN1 project that aims to emphasize the versatility of Chanel jackets by sending one and the same jacket to five different women in five European countries and asking them to capture their perception of the jacket in an image


At KERN1

We want to make Chanel's outstanding designs accessible for everybody. Therefore we offer payment in multiple installments (usually two or three). If you are eyeing a certain jacket, and want to save up for it: contact us to reserve your dream jacket and discuss a payment in multiple installments

Les Coyotes de Paris x KERN1

LCDP x KERN1 is a collaboration between two Netherlands based companies that found common ground in their belief of thoughtful dressing. Les Coyotes de Paris is an emerging design studio for womenswear that is characterised by re-invented iconic shapes, twisted into modern silhouettes. While KERN1 is an online store that focusses on collecting and selling authentic pre-owned Chanel jackets. Both brands were brought together in a story that express that well-designed clothes, with attention for cuts, fabric and quality, are made to last and easy to combine
