Printemps, a Paris department store unveiled its Chanel Christmas-themed windows today with Vanessa Paradis, Bruno Pavlovsky (president of Chanel fashion) and Santa Karl himself in attendance. The window features dolls in Karl Lagerfeld’s likeness in an array of poses and activities all over a replica of Paris which includes an Eiffel Tower and the column from Place Vendôme – complete with double-Cs on top of course.
“I guess I’m a doll you can’t play with,” the designer told style.com at the unveiling. “In a way, I’m lucky. I don’t sing, I’m not an actor, I don’t make scandals, I’m just working class.” (Belfast Telegraph)
The display is so fun! I wonder if the Karl Lagerfeld dolls will be for sale?
As for what Santa Karl will be doing for the holidays – he likes to be alone…
Everyone I know is leaving [Paris], but I stay home because it’s the only moment I can work on the Couture quietly, sketch, and take care of my books and houses – all the things I never have time to do the rest of the year. For me the ultimate luxury is to be alone… to have time for myself, not look at my watch, and do whatever I want, whenever I want.
