A historic Palace location and these pretzels and Mozart balls: The year’s “metiers d’art” show 2014 by Chanel in the romantic Salzburg took place. And Karl Lagerfeld (81) and Cara Delevingne (22) provided for the mood of Sisi. Our site correspondent Carolin Dendler was present at the great Chanel show:
Life is a show and Emperor Karl deserves its name. This morning at eleven o’clock in the venerable Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg: Limousine rolled through the Castle Park, hovers above a cloud of Chanel No. 5. Journalists such as VIP customers, from head to toe in Chanel clothed, the great ambience of the Sisi admired has been.
Romance in the style of Sisi
A first-class breakfast was served on the tables: pretzels, cheese, bacon, eggs, Christmas tree cookies, delicious cakes and – typical Salzburg – Mozart balls. Food is so back in fashion! However, no one dared to eat something. No one wanted to destroy the lovingly designed Chanel decoration! 100 cozy Baroque armchairs for the chosen audience stood ready in the salons. At the beginning of the twenty-minute show played Alpine horns.
The collection: costume look Deluxe
The pasture has never been so chic: Karl Lagerfeld, for more than 30 years of Creative Director at Chanel, put his models, including Kendall Jenner (19), in fine Tweed jackets, sumptuous embroidered capes, leather hot pants. The collection: deluxe costume look – even for the man. Also Charles darlings were on the catwalk: the beautiful Baptiste (25) and Godson Hudson Bundchen (6), which was shown in leather trousers at the hand of Papa Brad (35). And, of course, also Charles favorite model Cara Delevingne (22) on the catwalk here, that shortly after the show took off their white dream dress and instead with Mickey Mouse hat with new best friend Kendall Jenner Muhammad rum was.
My Chanel moment with Geraldine Chaplin
VIP guest Geraldine Chaplin (70) is next to me and says: “Lagerfeld is a genius. He is not only a brilliant fashion designer but also Director.” I wonder how many Chanel jackets she owns the Hollywood star. The Grande Dame of cinema smiles and replies with a wink: “still no. “But today I’m not giving back just my rental jacket.” A little later, is Karl Lagerfeld, is applauded, hugged, kissed. I ask him whether he would himself also likes storm the mountains in the Alps look. The high fliers: “I wander only in my dreams. To walk I unfortunately don’t have time.”
