Lovers of fashion have been really looking forward to this release - Karl Lagerfeld's short film about Coco Chanel.
Why? Karl used the best Chanel documentary sources to shoot his own ten-minute tribute to Coco.
The film comes out this week in the Ranelagh theatre, along with the launch of the Chanel Paris-Moscow collection, an interesting pre-fall 2009 collection for more hardcore fashion lovers.
Karl used his favourite model Brad Koenig and his personal secretary Sebastien Jondeau, as well as models Edita Vikeviciute and Tallulah Ormsby-Gore.
The film (mute) tells a story from 1913, when the legendary designer opened his first fashion store. The film tells the story of the intense relationship between Coco and Duke Dimitri Pavlovich - the film is full of references to Russian folklore. Word has it that the Duke's army jacket inspired Chanel's women's jackets.We'll see the film soon on youtube.. Oh, and all the Chanel designers participated in the film as extras.
