No excuse for this picture except that Liz Hurley was so ridiculously beautiful at this show!! (This was the Signe Chanel show, if anyone remembers that...)

Shopping With Karl Lagerfeld

by WWD staff Feb 16 2009
The fashion designer believes luxury goods are not meant to be purchased online.


A consummate shopper, Karl Lagerfeld will take bricks over clicks any day.

“I like the physical contact with the goods,” said the peripatetic designer, who met last week with European competition commissioner Neelie Kroes, who is mulling loosening restrictions on online selling of luxury goods. “There is something unexciting about buying something exciting online.”

With help from his personal secretary, bodyguard and sometime Chanel model Sébastien Jondeau, Lagerfeld said he frequently buys CDs and books from the likes of Amazon.com, but he prefers to rifle the racks himself at Paris stores like Colette or Dior Homme. “And I still like bookshops, and not because I have one,” he said, referring to his 7L shop, which specializes in photo books, on the Rue de Lille here. (He is also a famous habitué of Galignani on the Rue de Rivoli.)

Lagerfeld said he spent about two hours with Kroes in Brussels, telling her luxury companies reserve the right to selective distribution agreements, which prevent products from being sold in unforeseen channels. He also reminded her that “they sell so many fakes [online]. There’s so many legal questions.”

Moreover, he told her there’s no need to fix what isn’t broke. “I think there’s no urgency,” he told WWD. “In a moment of crisis, it is not the time to change things that are working.”

In Lagerfeld’s estimation, “it’s still to early” to effectively sell luxury fashions online, because supreme quality, craftsmanship, tailoring and sophistication cannot be effectively conveyed. “An H&M dress and a Chanel dress can look the same in a small photo, but not in real life,” he said.

Just clicking also drains the joy out of shopping, he said. “When you buy in a shop, you buy what you discover, what you might have had no intention of buying.”

But “for markdowns and for sales, it’s perfect,” Lagerfeld said.

By contrast, the designer is a fan of the Internet as a communications tool, knowing people spend more and more time in front of screens. In fact, Lagerfeld, who directed a short film for Chanel’s Paris-Moscow métiers d’art collection last December, said he just wrapped another minimovie for another of Chanel’s pre-fall collections.

“I call it ‘Fitting Room Follies,’” he said, describing scenes of models Lara Stone and Baptiste Giabiconi cavorting in the cabin for his camera.

Kroes, who personally escorted Lagerfeld to his car after their meeting — he was heading to Rome for Fendi fittings — has also met with representatives from LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Compagnie Financière Richemont

"Better a split personality than no personality at all."

Why is it I have no doubts about who is behind this...?

Chanel Segway May Hint That The End Of The World Is Near



Attention those that believe the end times are nigh...

Introducing the Chanel-branded Segway — an item so utterly ridiculous that it makes the $12K Chanel-themed bicycle owned by Jennifer Aniston seem practical.
We have no idea who thought combining high-priced purses with the eco-friendly Segway was a brilliant marketing move, but since Jackie Chan owns a dealership in Hong Kong, he’s guilty by association.
No word on price yet — but we figure well-north of $10K is an appropriate guess. Oh, the humanity!

^I've always thought Segways were for Silicon Valley nerds, but now...


If only they tweaked the tires a bit so they'd be the double C!
