The air feels a bit different today, doesn't it? A bit more … calm. Like before a storm. Or a cyclone of fabulous, which is what shall ensue when Karl Lagerfeld touches down in New York this weekend. He's coming by to check out the Chanel Mobile Art Exhibit currently under construction in Central Park but opening to the public on Monday. Monday, people! He's also supposed to present an award at the Fashion Group International's Night of Stars, taking place at Cipriani Wall Street exactly one week from now. But it gets more exciting: The Kaiser will also shoot his Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld eyewear campaigns in Manhattan. So don't leave home without your digital camera and extra batteries for the next week. When he's finished here, he'll head to his new crib built in the year 1840 in Vermont on Lake Champlain to shoot campaigns for Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld ready-to-wear. So if you're planning a trip to see the foliage — now a very fashionable weekend pastime — go next weekend and look for Karl. The sight of him stomping through the orange leaves would be more than worth the awful drive up there. Hell, we'd suffer through that $10 bus ride with all the funny smells.
When he's done in Vermont, Karl's heading back to Paris to work on the Paris-Moscow pre-fall line for Chanel, which will be presented there on December 3. The show will open with a silent movie directed and produced by Karl, starring his favorite boy wonder, model Brad Kroenig. WWD writes, "Expect a fast-paced, laugh-packed and loose interpretation of Gabrielle Chanel’s adventures between 1913 and 1923." This is too much. Excuse us while we bounce up and down and flutter our hands in the air.
