The Tale of a Fairy by Karl Lagerfeld – Preview

Chanel is gearing up for its Cruise Collection show next week and dropped the trailer of a new film by Karl Lagerfeld called The Tale of a Fairy.  Here’s the trailer and what Chanel had to say about it:

The Tale of a Fairy is a short film imagined, written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld for the 2011/12 Cruise collection, which will be screened at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc at the Cap d’Antibes on Monday May 9th 2011.
The film stars Anna Mouglalis, Chanel ambassadress, Amanda Harlech, Kristen McMenamy, Freja Beha, Bianca Balti, Baptiste Giabiconi, Brad Koening, Jake Davies, Mark Vanderloo, Oriol Elcacho, Sébastien Jondeau, Seth Kuhlmann, among other friends of the House.

“It is a movie about an ill-advised use of money which begins with violence and ends with feeling” Karl Lagerfeld, May 2011

First News: Chanel Cruise Collection Film

Freja Beha Erichson, Lady Amanda Harlech, Anna Mouglalis and Kristen McMenamy

The Chanel Cruise show will set sail on May 9th and will show in Antibes, a resort town on the Côte d’Azur, located between Cannes and Nice. To coincide with the collection, Karl is making a movie featuring some of his ladies du jour including Freja Beha Erichson, Lady Amanda Harlech, Anna Mouglalis and Kristen McMenamy.   The movie will be shot on location in Monaco and other hot spots in the South of France.  I’m a bit surprised that this cruise collection will also be centered around the Côte d’Azur because the last Cruise collection was as well.  I’m sure it will have a different feel – I’m really curious to see how Karl will switch it up.
