Karl Lagerfeld’s silent cinema brings Moscow to Paris

December 13, 2008

Karl Lagerfeld opened his pre-fall 2009 Chanel show last week with a ten-minute silent short film about Coco Chanel — his directorial debut!

Last year, Karl Lagerfeld brought Paris to London, and this year he brings Moscow to Paris, highlighted by his silent film presentation. He shied away from the subtle, with elements of Russian folklore tying the collection together, including elaborate headdresses, thick fluffy knits and sparkly gold boots.

“So many people are making films about Coco – I thought we should do one – and I wanted a silent movie,” said Lagerfeld, referring to films in the pipeline with the French actress Audrey Tautou and the miniseries with Shirley MacLaine playing the older Chanel.

Silent short was shot in 2 days on the outskirts of Paris with actors plucked out of the fashion world and Chanel house sewing personnel.

Chanel – The Silent Film (Teaser)

December 4, 2008

On December 5 debuts Coco Avant Chanel, a 10-minute silent film celebrating the legend of Mademoiselle Coco — pre-dating her existence as a brand demi-god.

The film was directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the only person alive who can make a safety vest look chic. Here’s a trailer for the film, so pitch-perfect it makes smoking look sexy again.
