Karl Lagerfeld paraded a pre-fall collection as opulent and luxury as the setting — the Ritz Paris. “For me, it’s a certain idea of Paris: Gabrielle Chanel
, the Ritz, the Hemingway Bar. This is the kind of Paris everyone would like to bring back,” the designer said. He confessed to fleeting references to the Twenties and Thirties, when the founding designer took up residence at the famous hotel — near from her Rue Cambon headquarters. With his uncanny sense of timing and style, Karl Lagerfeld produced a show not just a collection that was not only contemporary and filled with beautiful clothes to wear, but had a joyfulness and sense of fun.
