Window World: Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 Pre Collection

Two weeks ago we posted about Karl Lagerfeld’s newest Chanel short film, Window World.  Now, Chanel has launched a Window World site devoted to the Spring/Summer 2011 Pre Collection looks featured in the short.  The site is a virtual rendition of the film – it shows images of Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Dvorakova and Baptiste Giabiconi as mannequins without the eerie music from the film.  Check out screenshots from the site below, as well as lookbook shots of the Spring/Summer 2011 Pre Collection.  If you haven’t seen Window World yet, you can also see it below.

My favorite thing about the collection has to be the red accents – the red shoes with black toe cap, the red quilted bags, and the red wigs.  I also am loving the black cuffs with chains and the t-strap top cap heels. The website is also cool and I love how the images move – it makes up for the less than stellar short film.

Window World by Karl Lagerfeld – The Short Film

After a controversial short film for the Paris-Shanghai collection, Karl Lagerfeld skipped doing a fashion film for the Paris-Byzance collection. I guess Lagerfeld couldn’t keep himself from shooting a short film though and what we have now is the release of Window World, Uncle Karl’s latest fashion film for Chanel.

Window World features Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Dvorakova and Baptiste Giabiconi as mannequins in a store window with music fit for a suspense movie in the background. If Mannequin and Psycho had a baby it would be Window World. Not Karl’s best work but entertaining nonetheless.
