Carine and Karl Go at It Again for Chanel


For someone who loves to dip his fingerless gloves into any and every thing, Karl Lagerfeld sure likes to keep things simple. Some times. Case in point, the multi-tasking, multi-hyphenate designer has tapped freelance stylist extraordinaire, Carine Roitfeld to style Chanel‘s upcoming spring/summer campaign.

Gone, however, is a cat-whiskered Freja Beha Erichsen jammed into a photo booth. For spring, it’s “all about athletics and the sea.…It’s very modern sportif and in black-and-white,” quote the Lagerfeld. Uncle Karl shot Roitfeld fave Saskia de Brauw and Naomi winner Joan Smalls over the weekend at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, but there’s no rest for the wicked — which would explain why he (almost) never takes off his glasses…giant bags and I’m not talking monogrammed — as the Kaiser then zipped off to Rome to photograph Arizona Muse for Fendi‘s fall campaign.
