Fashion People Getting Too Exhausted By Fashion

Today WWD unleashed a crucial feature that asks the fundamental question, “Is Fashion Heading for a Burnout?” The endless schedule of fashion weeks—and the increasing demand on designers to churn out eight seasons a year to keep up with consumer demand—has been a font for soul-searching for several years now,… »10/27/15 11:37am10/27/15 11:37am


Is This Karl Lagerfeld's Bougiest Quote Ever or Nah?

T, the New York Times’s style magazine, interviewed Karl Lagerfeld for a feature set in Paris, the only city in which Karl Lagerfeld truly exists. Given the setting and opportunity, the ever-quotable Karl Lagerfeld spouted the most Karl Lagerfeldian quote that ever did see the light of day, and it might have been his… »10/12/15 2:15pm10/12/15 2:15pm

Paris Fashion Week: Welcome to Chanel Airlines, Karl Will Be Your Pilot

Karl Lagerfeld, of late, has been somewhat obsessed with the domain of the proles—this idea of populist spaces, except they’re “elevated” to his standards of Chanel bourgeoisie. Recent runway shows have included a Chanel supermarché and a faux feminist protest, both of which were received with giddy enthusiasm, so his… »10/06/15 10:35am10/06/15 10:35am

Karl Lagerfeld Cannot Be Bothered To Set Up His $25K Gold Apple Watch

A photo taken by his assistant shows Karl Lagerfeld wearing a custom gold Apple Watch that MacRumors suspects could be worth up “upwards of $25,000.” Looks great Karl, but did you know that it hasn’t been set up yet?

Here are Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Singing a Duet for Karl and Bey

Supermodel-turnt-actor Cara Delevingne has been working with Pharrell on an album (of music!) as of late, and Tuesday in New York at Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Métiers d'Art presentation, the duo debuted the fruits of that labor. She has nice tone but um, this clip is a tad pitchy, if you will. And because of that: on a… »4/01/15 10:50am4/01/15 10:50am

Karl Lagerfeld Loves His Cat, Isn't Afraid to Tell Rihanna 

Last night, New York Times fashion reporter John Koblin met up with Rihanna at a swanky party for designer Karl Lagerfeld. At the party, held in a $60 million apartment on the 83rd floor of a luxury skyscraper, Koblin and Rihanna had what, ostensibly, was meant to be an interview, but on the written page seemed more… »2/15/15 6:00pm2/15/15 6:00pm

Karl Lagerfeld's Latest Chanel Film Is a Weird Pharrell Music Video

Once again, Chanel's annual Métiers d'Art show—in Salzburg, Austria this year—has been kicked off with a short film directed by Karl Lagerfeld. This time, it's a dreamy Habsburg fantasy starring Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne, who sing a strange and frankly terrible original song titled "CC the World." Good… »12/02/14 1:15pm12/02/14 1:15pm

Karl Lagerfeld Slapped His Cat's Name on Some Tacky Accessories

Karl Lagerfeld has borrowed on his cat Choupette's star power for a line of clothing and accessories coming this fall. Unfortunately, it is nothing I want. (As though I would pony up hard-earned American currency for cat-inspired designer items in the first place, when there are perfectly good Etsy stores.) (Yeah, I… »9/23/14 4:30pm9/23/14 4:30pm
