To Cool For School.

Sportswear is having a big moment in fashion. Whether it’s Chanel’s Boxerinas or the launch of Net-a-Sporter it seems that comfort and functionality are the new LBD. This has made almost any and every fashion house incorporate a luxury backpack into their accessory repertoire, since women want a practical bag that is elegant at the same time. Here are a few of our favorite luxury backpacks, we wouldn’t be surprised if you decide to trade your trapeze for a comfier model.

The Inevitable Book Of Karl Lagerfeld Quotes.

Original article published on Fashionista.

fs-karl-lagerfeld

Whether or not you agree with the things he says, you can’t deny that just about everything that comes out of Karl Lagerfeld’s mouth is a little bit amazing.

A round up of his best quotes (not all of them–just the best ones) from a single yeartook up 10 pages of this website, so imagine how many there would be if you went back through his entire career. You could practically fill a book. Oh wait–someone did.

It’s called, of course, The World According to Karl; it comes out in September in English and French through French publisher Flammarion; and we’re already imagining how perfect it’s going to look on our coffee table.

The book’s 160 pages include illustrations by Charles Ameline. While Lagerfeld himself did not participate in the creation of the book (aside from incidentally providing its material), WWD reports that he is “said to be happy with the compilation,” which is not surprising.

Still, we wonder if Karl isn’t just a little jealous he didn’t publish a book of his quotes first–and we also wonder when he will publish some sort of tome that isn’t just of little black jackets or Nietsche’s complete writings. Think he has a memoir in the works? Or willChoupette’s come out first?

Can anyone guess what will be item number 1 on my bday wish list?

Once Upon A Time… Chanel.

Chanel Keira

In order to commemorate the fashion house’s 100th anniversary (yes it’s hard to believe there was ever a world without Chanel), Karl Lagerfeld has shot a fashion film that re-tells the brand’s beginning. This film is set in Deauville, where the first Chanel boutique was located, and features Keira Knightley as Gabrielle Chanel.

Enjoy this preview, and keep your eyes peeled for the real thing on May 8th.
