The image of the amazing backdrop of the Austrian mountains posted by Caroline de Maigret on Instagram made us want to see what Karl had in store for this pre-Fall ’15 collection, based on the craftmanship of CHANEL artisans.
But first, Lagerfeld’s contemporary view on the emperors from the old days; Kaiserin Elisabeth of Austria (Sissi) and her spouse Franz Joseph 1, embodied by Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams, and captured in the short film: ‘Reincarnation‘.
Dirndls, lederhosen, the Sound of Music, embroideries, military details and many referrals to the Tyrolean Alps. Ingredients of a history meets present collection at Schloss Leopoldskron.
Wether it’s the sight of Pharrell and Cara waltzing or the cute Hudson Kroenig walking the down the catwalk in his mini-size lederhosen, ‘Sissi’ and ‘CC’ can be proud.
