The Best Street Style from Chanel’s Métiers d’Art in Dakar

Last week in the city of Dakar, Chanel and a host of stars across the world descended at the former Palais de Justice in the Senegalese capital to celebrate a historic Métiers d’Art Showcase.

The Métiers d’Art Showcase is a series of annual fashion shows produced by the luxury French fashion house. However, the 3-day showcase in Dakar is the first time Chanel has hosted a show on African soil.

These shows typically showcase the brand’s haute couture collections, as well as its artisanal craftsmanship and savoir-faire.

Known for their luxury and opulence, The Métiers d’Art shows often take place in historical or culturally significant locations with last year’s event taking place in Le19M, a striking centre for speciality workshops designed by architect Rudy Ricciotti and located near Porte d’Aubervilliers, a working-class neighbourhood in Northern Paris.

“By choosing Dakar, the house wishes to make the savoir-faire of its métiers d’art resonate with the artistic and cultural energy of the city,” the French luxury brand said in a brief statement.

According to Chanel, through 19M, its centre for the Métiers d’Art ateliers, a number of partnerships are on the way to create development and the nurturing of artisanal ties between Paris and Dakar.

The highly anticipated event was attended by celebrities, musicians, artists and other high-profile individuals including Naomi Campbell, Pharell Williams, Edward Enninful, Adama Paris, Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Pharrell Williams, Ibrahim Kamara and Tobe Nwigwe who blessed the cameras with their various interpretations of Dakar’s street fashion.

Street fashion in Dakar is influenced by a variety of cultural and historical factors and often incorporates traditional fabrics and designs. Common elements of Dakar street fashion include bold colours, intricate patterns, and a mix of modern and traditional styles so it was no shock to see a lot of these themes play prominently at the Métiers d’Art Showcase.
