Karl Lagerfeld in Vermont!

highsnobette-karl lagerfeld

Some of you may have heard that Chanel’s King Karl has snapped himself up a yummy little brick colonial in a sleepy town in Vermont.  He has been a busy little bee both redecorating and shooting Chanel’s latest ad campaign (shown above) in his country hideout and while the entire town is a buzz, Karl had this to say; “I love this house, it is so Emily Dickinson.” Both were courageous, intelligent, loud mouthed chicks but do Coco and Emily have anything fashion wise in common? I guess we’ll find out.



The Chanel Segway

Highsnobette- chanel segway

A Chanel Segway?? I’m on the fence as to weather this is really hot or just kinda dorky. Let me know what you all think. The personal transporter comes with quilted hand grips, black leather mudflaps, and it is absolutely dripping in the Chanel logo. Perhaps the most intriguing amenity is the Chanel 2.55 handbag that hangs from the handlebars, so you can look fly while speeding along at a whopping 12 miles an hour. Karl darling, you never cease to amaze me.

KimK & Reg: No Makeup Still Amazing!

kimkboobies KimK & Reg: No Makeup Still Amazing!

Yes, people, this is a gratuitous shot of KimK for no other reason than we’re fond of her around these parts. Well, wait. Given that we like her in general, the thing that’s kind of cool about this shot is that she’s wearing little-to-no-makeup, which is rare for her. Either way as you can see she’s still smoking hot. And can you imagine being a guy in a gym trying to workout next to her with that top she’s wearing?? Reggie better have kept his game face on the whole time he was in that gym, otherwise Mami be creating all sorts of havoc!

After the flip, more images of K & R, including one in which Kim flaunts her Chanel bag and her very junk-filled trunk.

Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Insane Earrings

Judging from Chris’s Spring 2009 collection, the dude not only has hope (see lack of said hope in previous post on Chanel), but balls the size of Jupiter. If the ship goes down, he’s gonna be the last one standing on the very tippy top of the mast singing his lungs out in something bright and sparkly.
Beyonce saw these and was like, "Daddy, I need to have those--immediatamente!"

Chanel Spring 2009: Cheez Karl!

28 January 2009, 18.56 | Posted in Couture, Fashion | No comments »

Chanel gave a funeral for its Spring 2009 collection and every one wore white. Karl must have been in a matchy matchy mood ’cause the models were all white, too. Well, a few wore black or black and white, but you get the picture.

Beautifully executed of course, but we expect more from you, Karl.

Beautifully executed of course, but we expect more from you, Karl.

When Karl designed this collection no doubt news of massive layoffs at the company were swirling all around him so I can understand the lack of  life, but damn this is supposed to be a year of hope! Like Harvey Milk in the movie says, “Without hope, life is not worth living. You gotta give ‘em hope. You gotta give ‘em hope.”

Et Tu Chanel?: Big Layoffs Coming!!

06 January 2009, 15.42 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

I know we’re in a worldwide recession, but I was still sort of stunned to read yesterday (Hahaha–how mad is WWD that it got scooped by the NY Times on this story??) that Chanel has plans to layoff 200 workers. There’s so much fantasy and aura that surrounds Coco & Co. that in my mind it’s akin to the North Pole and Santa’s Workshop. I mean cheez, is Old Saint Nich gonna announce elf layoffs next???

chanel bags2web 0 Et Tu Chanel?: Big Layoffs Coming!!

The articles money quote (which was pulled from a WWD article)? When Karl denies reality by stating: “Today, everyone can say that something is for financial reasons when they want. For me, artistic reasons are more important.” Okaaaaay, hun, keep living in that dream world (and I mean that sincerely!)
