KARL IN MOTION: Karl Lagerfeld is touching down in New York this weekend along with Chanel’s Mobile Art. And he has no intention of standing still. The multitasking designer, who is also slated to present an award to the Costume Institute’s Harold Koda at Fashion Group International’s annual Night of the Stars, will be bringing his cameras, too. He said he plans to shoot the Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld eyewear campaigns in Manhattan before heading to Vermont for Chanel and Lagerfeld ready-to-wear shoots. While in Vermont, Lagerfeld will discover the 1840 house he just bought, and a landscape he said reminds him of his original stomping grounds in northern Germany. Then it’s back to Paris to work on the Paris-Moscow collection, a luxury pre-fall line for Chanel made with the couture ateliers Chanel owns. It is to be presented on Dec. 3 at the Theatre du Ranelagh in Paris. “I’m mixing constructivism with folklore and Imperial Russia,” he said. Lagerfeld will also don a director’s cap for the silent movie he’s producing to open the show, cast with some regulars in his entourage, including Lady Amanda Harlech and model Brad Kroenig. Expect a fast-paced, laugh-packed and loose interpretation of Gabrielle Chanel’s adventures between 1913 and 1923.
