This weekend, Chanel released a behind the scenes look into the making of Karl Lagerfeld‘s recent Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2013 runway show. Providing audiences with a brief insight into the production of Chanel’s newest high fashion collection, this short clip brings to light the extensive craftsmanship and elaborate detailing necessary to create just one individual garment out of an entire, breathtaking series. This sentiment is only further emphasized as the video abruptly switches frames from a mesmerizing closeup to focus on a team of seamstresses delicately hand-stitching garments from the point of conception to completion–a rather lengthy and meticulous process for which the French fashion house is renowned. In essence, the video is nothing short of awe-inspiring and truly reminds us why Chanel has proven to be an unwavering staple in the fashion community for over a century.
