Bad romance

Lager­feld brings Paris to the heart of Rome

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style News -

Chanel’s pre-au­tumn show, Métiers d’art, was a homage to film, art and the cities that mean and meant the most to Lager­feld and Coco Chanel—paris and Rome. Lager­feld be­gan his ca­reer in the eter­nal city, de­sign­ing for Ital­ian cou­ture house Tiziani, while Coco de­signed cos­tumes for many fa­mous Ital­ian movies di­rected by Vis­conti and Pa­solini. It was fit­ting that the show—a black-and-white re­con­struc­tion of Paris—was held at Cinecittà, Italy’s “Hol­ly­wood on the Tiber.” The cloth­ing was a lit­tle darker and more dar­ing than the poppy, whim­si­cal cruise col­lec­tion that went sashay­ing down the run­way in Seoul last year. With patch­work lace stock­ings, quilted leather suits and bold chok­ers and ear­rings, this Chanel woman felt de­cid­edly more dar­ing, and per­haps more film noir.
