In 2007, Chanel released a custom bicycle, complete with quilted side satchels and earlier this year, Chanel created a custom Segway x2. It seems like Uncle Karl fancies wheels and this time he wants to roar, not glide.
Last Friday, Karl was spotted in Paris, in front of the Chanel boutique on Rue Royal, shooting the “Starting Point” press kit for Chanel’s pre-spring collection. Models Lara Stone and Baptiste Giacobini channeled Marlon Brando circa The Wild One. The motorcycle, customized in Toulouse, France, is a similar model that Brando rode in the film. Unlike the bicycle, word on the street is that the motorcycle won’t be for sale – sorry ladies, no “Easy Riding” for you.

The word is finally out. Coco Avant Chanel is making its way stateside in its English incarnation, Coco Before Chanel. If you’re in LA or NY, you’re lucky because it’s coming out first in those cities on September 25th. Since I’m not in LA or NY, in addition to buying a movie ticket, I also need to buy a plane ticket. You’ve heard me go on and on about Coco Avant Chanel - the rumors, the casting, the behind-the-scenes, the French trailer and the French premier – so I’ll put an end to my gushing and let you take a look at the photo still gallery and trailer below. End Scene.
