>> I was looking through some old Charlie's Angels photos (used to adore that show as a kid), and it really struck me as funny, how similar Kate Jackson's pants are to those already-ubiquitous Balenciaga jodhpurs...
>> Another French label to covet. But here it is, Heimstone, by designers Alix Petit and Delphine Delafon, whose dress-driven first collection came out just in time for fall. My favorite piece might have to be the military dress -- I'm just still stuck on that seventiesy mustard color.
The best introduction you could ask for is through this video they produced, which embodies the great carefree laissez faire attitude their clothes radiate.
>> ...of quotable quotes that is. We've been over this before, Karl Lagerfeld is a journalist's dream with all of his evocative one-liners. Lucky for us, there is a new round to make you sit back in disbelief, for this is the man who helms Chanel. Without further ado, straight from the horse's mouth:
From his humble side: "When I took on Chanel she was a sleeping beauty. Not even a beautiful one. She snored."
From his vulnerable side: "When I was 11 or 12 I was assaulted by a man and a woman. The Germans are rather like that."
And my personal favorite, from his Miss Manners side, the notice in the men's toilets at Chanel: "Pissing everywhere isn't very Chanel."
For more Karl fun, please step right up.
