The mythic kingpin of the cutting edge died in February, aged 85, devastating the industry after his decades as head of legendary labels Fendi and Chanel as well as his eponymous brand. Stars including Pharrell Williams, Tilda Swinton, Helen Mirren and Cara Delevingne paid homage to Lagerfeld on the stage during a tribute entitled “Karl For Ever.”
Blurring the lines of haute couture, theatre and film much as Lagerfeld was known to do, the event consisted of live performances and dramatic readings montaged with a short documentary. Featuring the ever reticent co-owner of Chanel Alain Wertheimer, the film was narrated by Lagerfeld himself, sewn together from dozens of clips before his death.
Australian artist Craig Redman has produced work for an array of brands including Apple, MTV, Converse and The New York Times. Redman has featured in some solo exhibitions showcasing his work but he is most well known for his one eyed character Darcel that acts as an art & fashion critic on Redman’s blog. Redman has now joined Parisian boutique colette, in their 15th anniversary by creating 150 illustrations for the shop décor. The illustrations take on the look of the entertainers and fashion personalities Pharrell Williams, Alber Elbaz, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, Miuccia Prada, and Karl Lagerfeld all with Darcel stylings.
