Chanel's Pre-Fall Collection Show Won't Feature a Karl Lagerfeld-Directed Film This Year

Chanel's Pre-Fall Collection Show Won't Feature a Karl Lagerfeld-Directed Film This Year

>> Karl Lagerfeld historically directs a short film to pair with his Pre-Fall Chanel collection shown in December, but after coming under fire for last year's short, which featured Freja Beha Erichsen in yellow face, there will be no film this year. Instead, the Pre-Fall 2011 collection — which has a Paris-Byzantium theme, in homage to Coco Chanel's penchant for Byzantine-style jewelry, and debuts Dec. 7 in Paris — will be complemented with a book of Lagerfeld's photos, some of which he snapped of 5th and 6th century mosaics last weekend in Ravenna, Italy. “I had no time to make a movie,” Lagerfeld explained.
