Karl Lagerfeld Page 3
Hot off the rumor mill from yesterday’s WWD CEO Summit are reports that Chanel will stage its next annual Métiers D’Art show in none other than Dallas, Texas.
Karl Lagerfeld is taking advantage of the last week of the year to crack us up one final time with his notable quotables. Check out what he had to say in this wide-ranging interview on BBC Radio 4 this morning.
If anyone knows the demands of juggling multiple fashion lines, it’s Karl Lagerfeld (what is he at now — 10? 15?) And so, amidst concern that Alexander Wang might be spreading himself too thin with his newly-announced position as creative director of Balenciaga, it must be nice to know he has the master multitasker in his corner.
Karl Lagerfeld has designed all sorts of kooky shoes for Chanel. There were the pair with pistols for heels, the ones which featured fully-functional lightbulbs…even those $950 high top sneakers!
According to WWD, the next footwear frontier for the collab-happy designer is none other than jelly shoes, which he will be creating for Brazilian shoe company Melissa.
Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the annual Macy’s Parade. But we think the tradition could be much improved if these 10 fashion faces were added to the mix of ballons that float down the streets of Manhattan every year.
From a kilted Karl to a bagpipe bag, we have some ideas for Chanel‘s upcoming Métiers d’Art show, set to be staged at Linlithgow Palace near Edinburgh, Scotland.
Karl Lagerfeld is the most quotable of designers. Sometimes the things that come out of his mouth are hilarious, sometimes they’re mean-spirited, and sometimes they’re just downright bizarre…like when he compared jackets to the ’60s black empowerment movement on Thursday. Uh, come again?
As Brad Pitt will remind you, Chanel No. 5 is pretty much everywhere. Well, at least we think that’s what he means by the line “wherever I go, there you are.” Who knows. Anyways, this had us thinking that we really don’t come across Karl Lagerfeld‘s eponymous fragrances anywhere. But that’s all about to change!
As much as Karl Lagerfeld is known for his notable quotables, he’s also known for taking them back. He recently called French Socialist president François Hollande an idiot for introducing a 75 percent income tax on wealthy French peeps, and now, he’s backtracking. Quelle surprise!
You saw a sneak peak of the highly-anticipated, Karl Lagerfeld-lensed editorial earlier this week, but now Victoria Beckham‘s entire spread and cover for French Elle are out. Check out the rest of the images after the jump!
Karl Lagerfeld has lots of strong opinions, and he seems to love nothing more than sharing them with the world, whether the world asked for them or not. He’s spoken out about Adele, Kate Middleton‘s mom, and Courtney Love. His latest subject (victim?) is François Hollande, France’s Socialist president who replaced Nicholas Sarkozy this past May.
Earlier this summer, Victoria Beckham tweeted some behind-the-scenes pics of her Karl Lagerfeld-lensed photoshoot for French Elle inside Coco Chanel‘s home on Rue Cambon. We got a glimpse at the fancy hair accessories and clothes, which were Chanel couture, naturally, and now, we’ve got another sneak peek at her spread.
Karl Lagerfeld recently did an interview with England’s Channel 4 News about the Little Black Jacket exhibit, in which he proclaims the iconic piece a wardrobe staple, and then gets grilled about the fashion industry’s role in contributing to eating disorders like anorexia.
As easy as it is to make fun of the infamous hula hoop bag that was sent down the runway at Chanel‘s spring show, we not-so-secretly wish we had one to call our own (just think of all the things we could hang on it at the beach! Thanks for the tip Karl!)
For those who think imitation is the best form of flattery, well, you’ve never seen this video.
Karl Lagerfeld does not seem like the type of person who can be made to feel awkward. Ever. So it’s a good thing he was on hand to help Jennifer Lopez through a very uncomfortable television appearance on the German show Wetten, Dass…?. It’s unclear what they talk about at first, since everything is, well, in German and Lopez doesn’t venture much past monosyllabic answers, but once they get on the topic of Chanel, the actress/singer/all-around-powerhouse loosens up a little more and talks about bringing her daughter Emme to see the show this season.
One of the stand-out pieces from Karl Lagerfeld‘s Chanel spring 2013 collection was the “hula hoop bag”. The bag in question is literally a giant quilted number held between two hula hoops. It’s impractical and unnecessary, but Karl obviously doesn’t think so.
And other krazy things we learned in the inaugural issue of M magazine.
Err, ‘fur balls’ or ‘furballs’? Choupette is a lady, right?
Karl Lagerfeld is known for his quips as much as his drool-worthy designs. We call him Krazy Karl because he’s unfiltered and eminently quotable, and his latest is about Carole Middleton, as in Kate‘s mom.
