Karl Lagerfeld Creates Silent Film in Honor of Coco Chanel

On Our Radar: Karl Lagerfeld's Silent Tribute to Coco Chanel

While we eagerly await Coco Avant Chanel, check out Karl Lagerfeld's directorial debut in his 10-minute silent film toasting Coco Chanel in her youth. “It’s a funny movie, unpretentious,” says Lagerfeld. “Chanel was a charming woman, at liberty to seduce men. Everybody this year has decided to make a movie about Chanel, and you know their historical worth is not always too exact.”

Karl kept his cast tight, choosing model Edita Vilkeviciute to play Coco, his bodyguard to play a nightclub owner, and workers in his atelier to play parts in the movie. “I cannot take extras,” says Lagerfeld. “They don’t know how to touch the clothes.” The short film, described as light-hearted and fun, premieres in Paris this week — we can't wait for it to hit the web!

To see the film,

I hope Lagerfeld's film will be posted on the Chanel site.

Loved it. Especially loved his comment about how the extras don't know how to touch the clothes right. Since we're on the subject of Karl and his friends, I've been checking FabSugar for the past cuple of days and so disappointed there hasn't been one feature of Diane Kruger at her Paris premiere this weekend in Giambattista Valli! **fashion pout**
