I guess I'm kind of glad Karl's been doing more modest designs in the past decade or so. (That first dress on Claudia looks almost Cavalli-esque up top!)

Wow!! You can almost hear the Badenweiler March in the background, can't you...?

One of my favorite Chanel details- contrasting linings that can match the blouse, and sometimes even the bag- how cool!!

German model Claudia Schiffer shows for Chanel 19 October 1992 a classic black ensemble, in the Chanel style, worn over a pink printed brassiere. The outfit was designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel's 1993 Spring/Summer ready-to-wear collection.

I can't believe it! I've found two photos of a 82-83 fw fashion show! That can not be possible, I've always heard that his first Chanel show was ss83. What do you think?

The announcement of Karl's hiring was made by Chanel on Sept 15, 1982, and his first collection was HC S/S 1983 shown in January of 1983 at Rue Cambon...
