    Thank you my dear!
    You know me so well already...
    It’s funny, Signe Chanel was released in 7 parts the first time it aired.
    And like with Signe Chanel, it’s not about my favorite collection from him.

    I hope it will be available worldwide. Netflix France is kinda weak!

    I’ve seen the documentary...
    Seriously, it’s maybe the weakest documentary i’ve seen in a longtime. It’s not a documentary for someone who knows a little bit about the behind the scenes of a fashion house...

    The fact that it’s only about the week before the show might be to fault but Loïc Prigent did a better job with his « The day before » series.

    Some people would discover people from Karl’s team like the set designer, the casting director and such but apart from that...
    Some important parts of Couture are missed like the clientele and such. I didn’t understand the need for brand ambassador to talk...

    Nevertheless, great spirit all over. You feel a love and a real connection with the people in the house. The magic with Chanel is that it doesn’t feel « corporate ». They know and respect each others.

    And I love how the Premiere rocks Chanel. They have jewellery, watches, RTW...all Chanel and they are wearing it with a refreshing nonchalance. Some of their clients should learn from them...

    Signe Chanel is far more complete.
    Chanel should release a DVD of their old shows. It was frustrating to see some footages of 80’s couture shows.

    I still have no clue who she is. It's probably safe to say I'm better off for this.

    Donna Karan Joins Other Designers in ‘American Style’ on CNN

    The four-part docuseries examines how America’s changing style through the decades has mirrored the political, social and economic climate of the time.

    By Lisa Lockwood on January 9, 2019

    Donna Karan is among the designers who appear in CNN’s new original series, “American Style,” which will air Jan. 13 and Jan. 20, with back-to-back episodes at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., ET.

    The four-part docuseries features archival footage and interviews with Karan, along with Tim Gunn, Carson Kressley, Vanessa Williams, Beverly Johnson, Isaac Mizrahi, Jeffrey Banks, Christie Brinkley, John Varvatos and Diane von Furstenberg, among others.

    In one of the episodes, Karan talks about how when she began working, clothes were suits, shirts and ties, and she created the idea of “Seven Easy Pieces,” beginning with the bodysuit. The show examines how America’s changing style through the decades has mirrored the political, social and economic climate of the time. The series, which also touts First Ladies Jacqueline Kennedy, Michelle Obama and Melania Trump, highlights the most iconic moments from fashion and pop culture.

    The premiere episode explores style in the Forties and Fifties, how World War II and Hollywood helped create America’s own fashion identity, and the introduction of new trends such as the bikini, Zoot suit, shoulder pads, and the white tee as popularized by James Dean. The second episode tackles the style of the Sixties and Seventies as the youth culture comes into its own and fashion takes an extreme turn with looks such as miniskirts, the wrap dress, disco attire and all-black clothing as worn by the Black Panther Party. The remaining two episodes examine the history and style of the Eighties, Nineties and Aughts, and the rise of the supermodels with Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss becoming household names and styles such as grunge and heroin chic. While Karan is mostly in episodes two and three, she provides commentary throughout the series.

    The docuseries is produced by Vox Entertainment in collaboration with Doc Shop Productions.

    I watched the Kevyn Aucoin doc on Netflix last night. It was all interview with models & celebrities, plus A LOT of his own personal behind-the-scenes footage of said clients. 90s Cindy..very cool :)

    I remember that "Making Faces" book he had back then. My mom bought it, and, I kid you not, nearly everybody who walked through our house would thumb through that book and be totally wowed by the pictures. That's a good memory to have saved in my memory-bank, no?

    Be forewarned: there is a sad element to it (he did die, after all), but, I think they handled it in such a way where you're not grabbing for the tissues necessarily. It's not heavy on the dramatic side of his life. Enjoy!
