Bing Bang BONG! Chanel news! AND as usual, you wait all morning for a decent Lagerfeld titbit and then three come along at once. Firstly, today is the day that Chanel unveil their cruise collection (you know, that mini one in between SS and AW – almost like high summer) in glorious, money drenched St Tropez, if you please!
Part deux – someone has leaked out what they think might be the line up for the show – we’ve heard the names Georgia May Jagger and Crystal Renn, yowsers! Rock royalty and a super sized super - we hope this is true!
Part trois – Not content with a glittering, start studded catwalk show, well, when does Monsieur Lagerfeld ever rest easy? He has written, directed and conceived a stunning 17 minute film featuring all his favourite colt-like gamine muses with more than a couple of echoes ‘60’s icons, Bardot and Sacha Destel. The usual cast of Chanel beauties Georgia Jagger, Vanessa Paradis, Elisa Sednaoui (above) and Diane Kruger were drafted in to look winsome in various situations – Karl’s own sports car (a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, apparently), a nightclub, a sumptuously furnished maison, Ooh, la la how much more of this beauteaousness can our eyes take? But then, as the designer/director himself would say “You’re watching this in Karl Vision”
