Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel’s resort 2011 collection: “Remember Now.”
In addition to designing 87 looks for Chanel’s Riviera-inspired cruise collection, Karl Lagerfeld somehow found the time to shoot an accompanying 17-minute short, shown to editors and celebrities in Saint-Tropez last May. Filmed without a script, it stars French actor Pascal Greggory as an aging playboy who returns to the resort town after 30 years, only to find the young and fabulous indulging in decidedly retro activities. (Following a Seventies costume party, they have a group sing to the music of Sixties icon Sacha Distel.) The enviously attired cast includes models Freja Beha Erichsen, dressed as Mick Jagger, and Magdalena Frackowiak, who does a spot-on Bardot. Lagerfeld himself also makes an amusing appearance, strolling into the after-hours party dressed angelically in head-to-toe white.
