While you may idealize Chanel with the streets of Paris or even the UK, Karl Lagerfeld is changing things up this year by showing Chanel in Texas. Karl Lagerfeld revealed the news at the WWD CEO Summit yesterday where he talked about his work ethic, his inspiration and his time at Chanel among other things.
Karl told WWD that the Chanel show will be in Dallas this year, because “First of all, I love Texas. I love Texans. There’s another reason. When Chanel reopened, the French press was beyond nasty. The only press that understood it immediately was the American press, and Neiman Marcus gave her the Oscar for her collection, so I think it’s a nice thing to go there.”
As to what the Texas show will bring is anyone’s guess. Will Karl Lagerfeld be inspired by wild wild west? When asked what inspires him, Karl told WWD, “Everything. I am what people call a voyeur. I look at everything. I remember everything. I can redo things my way because a bad idea of somebody else can give you a good idea. I am like a building with an antenna that captures everything. I want to know everything. I read every magazine. I want to be informed. I think that’s exciting about fashion. You look at paintings from whatever century, but you can only date them by the clothes. That means fashion is important.”
We can’t wait to see what Karl Lagerfeld will bring to Texas, because as you know everything is bigger there!
