No Russian Winter for Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld, who had planned to show his next collection of luxury ready-to-wear for Chanel in Moscow in December, has opted for Paris instead.

RUSSIAN AROUND: Karl Lagerfeld, who had planned to show his next “métiers d’art” collection of luxury ready-to-wear for Chanel in Moscow in December, has opted for Paris instead, as reported. Turns out showing in Russia was logistically too complicated, as it would have required, for one, sending the collection three weeks ahead. Nonetheless, Lagerfeld plans to keep the theme for the Paris-Moscow collection on Dec. 3. The venue is the Theatre du Ranelagh in Paris and “it has the look of an old Russian theater in a way,” the designer said of the 189. He also plans to “show a little movie” to open the show about the famous mademoiselle.
