The Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Métiers d’Art 2014-2015 Show, titled « Paris-Salzburg », presented at Schloss Leopoldskron Palace, on December 2, 2014, made reference to Chanel’s Little Black Jacket, which was inspired by a Tyrolean uniform, worn by a lift attendant that Coco Chanel met at the Schloss Mittersill hotel, in Salzburg, in the ’50s.

Another Salzburg-inspired collection : Karen Walker Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (influenced by « The Sound of Music » and by Bob Dylan, this show was dubbed « Salzburg, USA »).
