Dior Uses LED Lit Set…Too

Dior Chanel LED light runwayAm I being too critical? Overly sensitive?  Grumpy?  I’ve been know to be a little of all of the above but every time Dior comes out with something new lately I feel like they aren’t even trying.  Instead, I feel like Dior is like a little kid looking over Chanel’s shoulder during a pop quiz.  Copying will get you nowhere!  In the latest copy cat act, Dior showed their less than stellar Spring 2012 collection with a backdrop lit by LED lights.  Dior, please hire a designer who will lead your house because right now you are following!

**UPDATE** To clarify, the top photo is from the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011-2102 Haute Couture presentation and the bottom picture is from the Dior Spring-Summer 2012 presentation.

Carnet Vendôme Illustrations by Karl Lagerfeld

Since the set of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011 Haute Couture presentation was a recreation of Place Vendôme, it’s only fitting that Carnet Vendôme was handed out to all the guests at the show.  Carnet Vendôme is a guide that has information on the more than 60 Vendôme members, many of which are luxury retailers, including of course Chanel Fine Jewelry.  Carnet Vendôme is printed in three languages (French, English and Chinese) and for the current issue, Karl Lagerfeld drew all of the illustrations.  You can find Carnet Vendôme at Galignani bookstore for 10€.

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/2012 show was earlier today in Paris.  Photos are surfacing online.  I’m getting images together to get a review up but in the mean time maybe this will keep you occupied…
