KARL LAGERFLED- CHANEL SHOW - VENICE
The fashion world is a all abuzz with Karl Lagerfield's highly anticipated new line at the Chanel show- this week in Venice- for his 2010 line.
Why Venice? Coco Chanel was facinated by Venice in her first trip in 1919. This inspired the line for Karl. Talking about a symbol that maybe be playing apart of this collection- the lion (which I found this a great door bell walking this afternoon) Chanel collected lion figurines while visiting and she was also a Leo...
Word is that Karl has been spotted all of the city and is prepping the show himself and packed 13 (yes 13) bags of luggage (including his favorite Goyard suitcases). I thought that I packed a lot with my two bags- but I guess if you are KL- there really isn't such a thing is packing light and you have a team of manservants to assist your every need.
The show is today in the Lido. Here are shots from the Chanel store windows yesterday afternoon. I was jet lagged and tired- but it reminded me so much of my trip to the Chanel aparment last year while in Paris (for those who missed: http://grantkgibson.blogspot.com/2008/09/chanel-ing-coco.html
And now we take you back to our regular scheduled program...Venice.
(Yes- it is 2.45 in the morning- I can't sleep at all. I did get 5 hours of sleep in and I somehow hope that my blogging makes me sleepy and I can get a few hours- I can dream of cappuccino for breakfast!)
