Confirmed: ‘Karl Lagerfeld Is Having More Fun Than Ever!’

Best fashion show moment of the spring 2012 season.

If you're like anyone with eyes, you're still recovering from the wonderfulness that was the spring 2012 Chanel ready-to-wear show. The under the sea–themed program — for "fashion show" seems too weak a term to describe it — showcased clothes embedded with many aquatic details, which were hard to pick out when surrounded by white fish sculptures, a man in skimpier, tighter clothes than most women wear to aerobics class, and a singer standing in an oversize seashell. Oh, and the live music from the custom fish-harp. French journalist Elizabeth Quin describe the clothes in some detail in a post on Chanel's website:

The dress with embroidered shoulders bears a trompe-l’oeil of lacy seaweed below the waistline. Karl Lagerfeld has been having more fun than ever!

Not many people can dress middle-aged women in coral and seaweed (which, with Rihanna's Esquire cover, seems to be having a moment), charge four or five figures for it, and be heralded a genius.
