Read a few funny snippets of interviews with Karl Lagerfeld – he really has a way with words. I can’t help but smile when I read his answers. He doesn’t want Haider Ackerman to succeed him at Chanel, he doesn’t like women in thongs, his hair is low maintenance and the campaign featuring Crystal Renn was shot in his childhood bed.

Chanel Soho Exclusives

To commemorate the re-opening of the Chanel Soho Boutique, Chanel not only released a Beauté collection, but also released exclusive footwear, leather goods and ready to wear pieces. The ready to wear pieces include a lambskin and “fantasy fur” coat featuring Crystal Renn in a shot made famous because her famous body was cropped out.  (I personally don’t think it was a big deal – I prefer cropping to photo shop any day).  The leather goods are handbags of different shades and sizes such as metallic python (in brown, red and light grey), black calfskin and caviar (in black and red). The calfskin bags feature a tweed lining, and all the bags have a “CHANEL Soho 2010” signature hidden inside – just to make it official. My favorite of the bunch is the footwear, especially the red python classic ballerina and the weekender boot made of black calfskin and python. Those boots were definitely made for stomping all weekend long in your favorite city. Take a look at the full collection below. To purchase, please visit the Chanel Soho Boutique at 139 Spring Street, 212-334-0055 or email SoHo2010Exclusives@chanelusa.com.
