There are few indisputable truths in the fashion world: That Black is always in is a classic. That Kate Moss can do no wrong nor ever look bad is pretty irrefutable. That Tights are not pants is another favorite. And there’s the unofficial yet unanimous agreement that Karl Lagerfeld is the best party-promoter on earth.
In a move that maintained his soiree status, the Chanel designer parked his tweed-covered party bus in London yesterday, showing his couture-like “Métiers d’Art” collection to the fashion set’s upper crust. After the runway show, Chanelophiles piled into Nobu to fete the French label and the enigmatic German who helms it. The gathering was less tea-and-crumpets and more tempura-and-champers, and when guests’ elbows weren’t plopped on the table (Emily Post is currently on her 166th rotation in her grave) they were rubbing up against their fellow fashion VIPs.
As per usual, the glitterati—which included current CC postergirl Claudia Schiffer, Mario Testino, Natalia Vodianova, and the pretty, pint-sized Emma Watson—greeted the designer’s arrival as the second coming of Coco herself. The dress code was—for those lucky souls who have the Chanel PR # on speed dial—black, white, and Karl all over. Except for Tom Ford that is; the designer wore himself, which sounds complicated, but to be truthful, was really quite chic.
