design: Karl does Coca-Cola light.

9 Apr

Now we love Karl.  Seriously.  Love.  The chinese takeaway bag for Chanel,  the irony shown with the Karl who shopper, and of course who could forget the Shanghai fashion show,  but we never expected this . . .

Of course Karl himself is no stranger to dieting, he who used to be quite literally the biggest man in fashion has slimmed down drastically in recent years – and now we see him designing his own range of bottles for Coke light, and accompanying ad campaign.

Bravo Coke – now.  Who’s next?



fashion: did anyone order a Chanel takeaway?

1 Apr

The latest in whimsy from the mind of Karl and the creative guru’s at Chanel, and yes.  We need one!


just for fun: Chanel impresario makes ice cream cool(er!)

24 Mar

As if ice cream wasn’t cool enough, fashions leading king of cool Karl Lagerfeld has just directed the latest advertising campaign for Magnum – a leading European brand of ice cream lollies about to make it’s debut in the US later this year.

The campaign starring former O.C actress Rachel Bilson and Chanel favourite Baptiste Giabiconi in no less than 3 short films, debuts in the US in time for the Magnum launch there in April, and promises hot enough to melt ice cream.


beauty: Keira Knightley for Vogue Italia.

23 Mar

Keira Knightly is without a doubt one of the most beautiful women on the planet, don’t believe us?  Well go ask Karl Lagerfeld who persoanlly ensured that she remains one of the premier faces of the House of Chanel.  Keira’s latest advert for Chanel has just premiered and is drawing gasps for how beautiful not only the advert itself is, but for how beautiful she looks too.  We premiered news of the shoot exclusively here last September and now the whole world gets to see what we were buzzing about.

Speaking exclusively to Vogue Italia she says of working with Karl, “I like working with him, he knows how to make me feel at ease, I’m not one of those people who benefits from conflict. If I’m tense I cannot give a good performance”.  We couldn’t agree more!

fashion: Chanel just got otherworldly

10 Mar

Leave it to Karl.  For weeks nobody has talked about anything other than the implosion of one of fashions brightest stars, every show from London to Paris vis Milan has been preoccupied with John Galliano and who may replace him at Dior, and yet again a masterstroke of genius in stage management by Lagerfeld left Chanel looking positivly out of this world, and the crisis over at Dior, well, frankly like yesterdays news . . .

fashion: while milan recovers from the night before, new york gets off to a swinging start . . .

10 Sep

So it was the morning after the night before, and while Milan was busy recovering, New York had no such chance.  Milan hosted a majorly successful event for the Vogue fashions night out, and the D-squared boys (above) looked like they were having a ball . . .

On the other side of the world – The big apple launched straight from fashions night out; the show, into fashions night out, into fashion week.  How on earth can one city take that much fashion?  Well leave it to Chanel to find the best way, Chanel launched their new SoHo store lat night with a host of the great and glam turning out, we loved Alex Chung (below), but mostly we couldn’t help but think how much we loved the grafitti style media wall the stars were getting papped against.

Was Chanel having a LV style Stephen Sprouse moment?  We couldn’t be sure, but we’d love it if it was . . .


fashion: chanel cruise & crystal renn, again!

7 Sep

Say hellow to St Tropez, again, for the Chanel cruise.

Yup you could be forgiven for thinking that you’d seen it all before.  St Tropez, check, Chanel, check, Crystal Renn, check, check and check.  But it seem’s like Mr Chanel, Karl, has a thing for plus size girls and a motorbike.

Crystal Renn (above) recent star of the chanel campaign for their new SoHo store (see it here!) was back on the catwalk, and as she has said of working with Chanel “living out her dreams”, though the real star of the cruise collection was the bike . . .

as you can see from our earlier post on the new Keira Knightley Chanel ad, perhaps this is the start of a real trend for next Spring Summer . . . time to dust of those James Dean’s!!!
