Karl Lagerfeld, Head Creative Director at Chanel, took over the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Dendur Temple with this year’s Métiers d’Art, showcasing a stunning collection inspired by Ancient Egypt.

The annual fashion show, and was held around the Dendur Temple, which was gifted to US president Lyndon B. Johnson by Egypt in 1967. The temple was built in 15 BC to celebrate Isis and Osiris, and is decorated with references to Happy, God of the Nile, and Horus, of the sky.
