Last night while the ladies were battling it out in Chanel at the opening of Chanel's mobile art pavilion in New York's Central Park, it was all about Karl Lagerfeld, Sarah Jessica Parker, and art! Quite the dynamic trio. While Sarah confessed to loving Chanel bags, Karl delivered some fun nuggets. Amidst falling branches, wind blasts, and frozen toes, here's what Karl had to say . . .
What do you think is a great piece for women to embrace in their wardrobes for the Winter?
"This is a piece of beautiful architecture — for clothes — I don't know how the Winter will be and how the economy will be and what they can afford, you know?"
How about something from your collections?
"I do several collections – I don't remember the collections!"
Tell me how this structure makes art and architecture accessible.
"What is art? What is architecture? What is fashion? All those things. Zaha Hadid (the architect) puts it in the same melting point. Fashion is fashion and art is art. We don’t need art but we cannot live without it. Fashion you need because if not you are freezing in clothes you need because we cannot run around naked."
