I remember watching that on TV. It was so fun.

My least favourite was Miami

I remeber back in the late 90's 'maybe in 95 not sure' Karl was in a an embarassing trouble, when Claudia came out on the runway in a black dress with arabic golden calligraphy & then his arabic clintee get an uncomfortable expression ... these motifs where from muslims holy book 'Quran', he apologised immediatly after the show & pulled that look from the collection, he said that he was at Taj Mahal in India & saw those motifs on the tombs & thought they were love poemes!

i'm back from a weekend in london and i've been to "some" shop (name i can't reveal) where i had the pleasure to enter a locked back room with the most amazing collection of vintage i have ever seen in my life.
seen the new UBERLARGE black pattent reissue? we'll they had the same, but an original from the 80s (one of karl's first creations for the house that must be) so the flap had the double Cs, black quilted lamb, gold hardware... only 50 copies available in the world.
price tag: the seller has been offered 100000 pounds (i doubled check the zeros when typing), but he wants more
:|

conclusion: unlike houses, or the stock market, or diamonds, or whatever really... the kaiser never looses its value

^ That's true- there is serious investment value here...If I had a ton of cash, I think I would invest in some and keep them safely locked up for a few years- seriously! Did you see the Red Shanghai bag that he signed? A fortune- and immediately sold out- you could probably sell an unused one next year for twice what it cost...

Great thread, I've been curious to see some earlier Karl's work for Chanel. I really loved S/S 1999 Couture collection, so simple and easy, yet classy, especially Kate in that white sequinned dress. Ah..

If all of the departed grand masters and couturiers were to come back and take a gander at the state and condition of their houses, I think Mlle. Chanel would be the most pleased. Were she alive today, I don't think her vision of Chanel and Karl's would be very far off at all; I think he's done an excellent job of staying true to the aesthetic, but also growing with the times.
