VANITY FAIR: Fashion is still in love with skulls, up to and including Karl Lagerfeld. He has designed a limited edition scarf to help mark an art exhibition opening today at the Musée Maillol in Paris. “It’s life! Vanitas from Caravaggio to Damien Hirst” has been put together by writer and journalist Elisabeth Quin, who selected paintings and photographs that illustrate vanitas, or symbols of death. Lagerfeld’s scarf features a sketch of Coco Chanel, her outstretched hand cradling a skull. Although not for sale, the scarf was a token for Quin and friends of Chanel. The exhibition runs through June 28.
