Lagerfeld’s ‘Remember Now’ Parts I & II

12 May 2010, 17.52 | Posted in Media, Models, advertisement | 1 comment »

Part I:

Part II:

As mentioned here yesterday Karl Lagerfeld premiered his short flick, “Remember Now” last night, and we present it here, split into two parts. The clothing is gorgeous, but as a poster on YouTube aptly sums up, “Rich and beautiful people fucking themselves with their egos. What an inane cliché.” Funny and true.

ChanelCruise1 Chanel Resort 2011

Karl works to get some mojo back via the sex channel, calling forth his inner Bridgett Bardot while pushing Princess Kelly to the back of the line.  It’s a fun/jaunty/entirely appropriate collection, but nothing that makes one believe it doesn’t all come back to selling lots of quilted bags.

Kids’ Choice Awards: Rihanna Etc. Pump Attack

Kid's Choice Awards Pumps

One of the big emerging shoe trends came into focus at the Kids’ Choice Awards, where celebs traded in complicated footwear for simple and classic pumps, preferable in nude tones. From left to right: Rihanna and Rosario Dawson, both of whom are wearing Brian Atwood, and Tyra Banks (whose shoes look about a size too big!).

All images from Wire. After the flip, Rihanna’s complete look, plus Zoe Saldana in Louboutin, Miranda Cosgrove in Pat Field X Keith Haring and Pixie Lott with a Chanel clutch.

SoHo Store Fronts: March 2010

StoreFrontLouis SoHo Store Fronts: March 2010

After making my forever longed for visit to Valley Salon for a manicure (will be posting a feature later that includes an interview with co-owner Julia) I took a stroll around SoHo to snap some shots of storefronts. It was a super sunny day, which is not the best for photographing glass, but ehh, I want to make this a regular feature so I went with what I could get to get the ball moving. 

What’s surprising is how crummy some of the windows are and not just because they need a good wash. Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu were fantastic (as they usually are),  and I especialy admired how the LV window recalled themes from the Spring 2010 show.  But given their usually impeccable runway presentations, I was a little disappointed by Chanel and very disappointed by Burberry.

After the flip find more images of the retailers mentioned here, plus Tokidoki (predictable) and TopShop (totally average).

The Making of the Chanel Runway

ChanelIceFront The Making of the Chanel Runway

We posted earlier about Karl being inspired by plushies for his fall ready-to-wear collection, and today we delve into some of the background of the amazing runway the furrie models walked for the show. According to Wallpaper, “the runway was painted with a trompe l’oeil effect, giving the impression of deep, glacial ice underneath. This was topped with a shallow layer of water. Chanel had also hired 35 ice sculptors who, over the course of 6 days, hewed 240 tonnes of ‘snice’ (frozen snow-ice, if you’re unfamiliar with the term) into a dramatic icescape, reaching 8.5 metres at its highest point. Models donned special transparent Chanel galoshes to wade through the watery catwalk and pace around the Iceberg.” One question, how do you find 35 ice sculptors?? Lol, can you imagine the Craig’sList ad?

Chanel Ready to Wear Fall 2010: Plushie Luv!!

 Chanel Ready to Wear Fall 2010: Plushie Luv!!

It’s funny because today earlier I was posting about a three-year-old Married to the Mob video and how MOB designer Leah McSweeney was an early appreciator of the wonders of plushies. I wonder if when Karl did this collection he was aware of the whole stuffed animal sex fetish thing. I’m thinking he had to be. I have to say when you stumble upon the world of plushophiles, it is really fascinating and inspiring. Just read the following quotes from a well-known Vanity Fair article on furry fandom and see if it doesn’t make you smile: “We’re a group of people who like things having to do with animals and cartoons,” a man in a tiger suit tells a woman. “We’re furries.” Maybe after a year of more b.s. than he could imagine, Karl was looking to feel a little happy. Bless his creative heart if that is the case.

Even though I’m al ittle mad at Chanel these days (too many of those gross totes with the giant Cs, plus Karl seems to be in a bit of a funk), this bag is still pretty amazing. Like the Jil Sander shoes I posted about yesterday, I also found it in New York Time’s T magazine.

Minx Nails at Chanel??

Chanel+Minx Minx Nails at Chanel??

We all see different things when we look at runway images. PersonallyI zero in on the shoes and accessories. Michelle at AllLacqueredUp focuses on the nail polish. For Chanel’s recent Spring/Summer 2010 runway show, she spied the nails featured here and wondered if Chanel hadn’t succombed to the lure of Minx polish. Noteworthy, she says because Chanel rarely uses outsider product on its runways.  I’m not enough of an expert to make the call, but I will say the polish perfectly accents the silverly smooth themes that anchored the show.
