Chanel Spring Summer 2011

The Chanel Spring Summer 2011 fashion show blew me away. I watched the video late Wednesday night and it almost brought a tear to my eye. There was an 80-piece orchestra who played a mix of music from Björk, the Verve and John “007” Barry. Take said orchestra and put them in the Grand Palais with a set inspired by the movie, Last Year at Marienbad. Chanel usually shows at the Grand Palais but this season they made use of the entire space for this incredibly expansive set. Karl tops himself again and again. Amazingly enough the clothes lived up to the set. This is a season of Chanel I approve of. Can we talk about the boots? I’m dying over them. Things I didn’t like: the sandals and the makeup.

Remember Now – Chanel Cruise 2011 Full Video

Remember Now, the short film by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Cruise 2011 collection looked slick and the clothes were oh so pretty but it was empty. It was a 16 minute short film that didn’t evoke an emotional reaction from me that wasn’t related to clothing. That’s too bad. The film nerd in me can’t deal with the stupid continuity issues either. I liked having all this media to consume from Chanel about the cruise 2011 collection. It’s always some grand spectacle to take a gawk at. The collection photos are up already and I’m loving about a quarter of the collection and going WTF for a quarter of it. The rest is meh. There are 80+ LOOKS!!! The first 8 looks put me in a good mood and then it when up and down. Some of the white and black stuff I liked and most of the 70s stuff I wasn’t a fan of. WWD has the full collection posted and you can see it on The Fashion Spot. I can’t wait for …

I’ve totally bought into Remember Now, the short film by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Cruise 2011 collection. The video does look pretty slick and inviting. I can’t wait to see the whole film. EDIT: the preview video was taken down but see this post for the full video.

FLY16X9 Interviews Karl Lagerfeld

I found a video interview of Karl Lagerfeld by FLY16X9. FLY16x9 presents an exclusive behind the scenes interview with Karl Lagerfeld at the opening of his photo exhibition ‘Farewell to Daylight’ at new York’s PACE/MACGILL GALLERY. I’ve place the interview under the cut because the video autoplays.
