Karl Lagerfeld Adds Director to His Long Resume

Are fashion films slowly edging out runway shows? Mmm, not quite, but they’re definitely a nice addition. For its part, Chanel is pushing the cinematic envelope with Remember Now. Directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the short film follows French screen icons Pascal Gregory and Elisa Sednaoui, a photogenic couple whose love life descends into a glorious orgy of camellias, nubile models, resort locations and emotive stares. It’s like Eyes Wide Shut and Paris Vogue all in one. The film screens tomorrow at the Chanel cruise collection in Saint Tropez, after which the hoi polloi can tune into the fashionable intrigue with an online screening at chanel-news.com.
