As the creative force behind the legendary house of Chanel, the German designer, artist, and photographer works at a superhuman pace, turning out eight collections a year for Chanel, as well as collections for Fendi and his namesake line, plus numerous collaborations. Yet of all of Lagerfeld's collections, perhaps the most dazzling is Chanel's Métiers d'art. Presented once a year, it's a celebration of the rich craftsmanship of the house's seven ateliers, including the famed embroidery creator Lesage, the milliner Michel, and the feather specialist Lemarié.

Since the Métiers collection debuted in 2002, it has been unveiled in such memorable sites as a rodeo in Dallas, a castle in Scotland, and a barge in Shanghai. Last winter, the new Paris-Salzburg Métiers d'art collection was fêted at the Schloss Leopoldskron palace in Salzburg, Austria, a location that stimulated Lagerfeld's imagina- tion.
