Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Linlithgow collection tweets up a storm

Chanel, Scotland, tartan, kilts, twinsets… what’s not to love in the latest Chanel Métiers d’Art show at Linlithgow Palace in Edinburgh? I’ll admit I have a love-hate relationship with Chanel RTW but this ticked most of my ‘love’ boxes. In particular, Stella Tennant in the ultimate luxe twinset and Edie Campbell in argyle-patterned tights and plaid tam-o-shanter, not to mention Sam Mcknight’s phenomenal Elizabethan hair dos.

Interestingly, this show had its very own unofficial @CC_Linlithgow Twitter handle, aggregating a kajillion photos a minute, run not by a fast-fingered Chanel lackey but a lone fan. Nice work whoever you are… UPDATE: I tracked down the secret tweeter and interviewed her here. It’s a must read!
