Surprised and worried myself in equal parts. Surprised because Karl Lagerfeld has chosen to Jon Kortajarena and not for her eternal lover Baptiste Giabiconi to star in his signature campaign for the Autumn-winter 2010 / 2011. Concerned that I don’t want to make our homeland model following Guinea pig of the kaiser. Will we see next summer in Saint-Tropez strolling with the designer?
Mysteries aside, the campaign has seemed to me too similar to some of Tom Ford of previous seasons. Both light, and the background and the model protagonist match, although the style of the clothing differs a lot (in favor of Tom Ford, obviously).
Garments remain deeply dark style of Karl Lagerfeld. The leather pants and to the mittens compose a part protagonist of the campaign.
I have to say, despite being a genius as creative director of the House of Chanel, as independent firm, Karl Lagerfeld I believe a disaster, a trail of the recognizable style of its designer and a purely non-profit attempt to build on the success that harvest. But we forgive him for the jewels that offers for Chanel. That Yes, Kortajarena that leave him still, we do not want to finish as Baptiste Giabiconi.
How about this twist of the designer?
