Chanel Métiers d'Art Paris-Rome 2016: Karl Lagerfeld's French-Italian cinematic vision realised

Monochromatic dream

Karl Lagerfeld speaks of old Paris, romance and silent films in Chanel's Métiers d'Art 2016 Show

Termed by the Kaiser himself as "Paris in Rome", Karl Lagerfeld turned into reality his intangible sentiments on the France–Italy cinematic tie of yesteryear. Chanel's Métiers d'Art Show sighed with romance and mystery — an idealised representation of vintage Italian cinema where coiffed actresses grazed its silent silver screens backdropped by monochromatic Parisian streets.

"There was something in the air, and I wanted to catch something out of that air," explained Lagerfeld. Watch the interview to find out what that is.
