Making of the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2012 Press Kit

making of the chanel spring summer 2012 haute couture press kit
Yesterday Chanel presented its Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 collection. Chanel News posted some images from the making of the press kit for the bedazzling collection. As is customary, Karl Lagerfeld took the photos but I apologize I don’t know the name of the model. My readers always help me out in this regard so feel free to chime in if you know who she is! I always love seeing Karl in action. Enjoy…

Rest In Peace François Lesage

francois lesage

François Lesage, the heir to the Maison Lesage embroidery studio, passed away last week at the age of 82 after losing his battle to his illness.  Maison Lesage was created by François’ father and he took the helm when his father passed away in 1949.  Though Maison Lesage was the embroidery studio for all of Paris’ best designers, this is particularly sad for Chanel because Chanel bought Maison Lesage in 2002 as part of Paraffection in a plan to preserve “petite mains” – the heritage of artisans, their age-old crafts and their couture ateliers.  Looking ahead and knowing the delicacy of the situation, François Lesage started an embroidery school in the atelier.  Maison Lesage will continue embroidering.  I send my deepest condolences to the Lesage family.

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

carnet vendome

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€.

Maison Michel Fall 2011 Lookbook

Maison Michel Fall 2011 Ready-to-WearMaison Michel is a millinery atelier that was purchased by Chanel in 2002 as a part of PARAFFECTION, a solution to keep haute couture ateliers alive.  In doing so, Chanel is keeping a rich legacy of knowledge and tradition intact and preventing fashion techniques from becoming lost arts, as well as ensuring that haute couture remains robust.

Maison Michel makes all of the hats for Chanel but also releases its own ready-to-wear collection.  The Fall 2011 collection just released and the look book images are beautiful.  Shot by Karl Lagerfeld and featuring Clemence Poesy, Sasha Pivovarova and Anna Calvi, the simplicity of the black and white images is juxtapozed against the intricate details of the head pieces. I love the lace headbands, the spiked headbands – really I love every piece.  There’s something for different looks and occasions.   I also love that Maison Michel specializes in millinery and that is how Coco Chanel herself got her start.  Check out the look book…
