Karl Lagerfeld is collaborating with Snoop Dogg. Straaaange. But oh, it’s only a video collaboration not a collection and whatnot. The now friends have met at Snoop Dogg’s party in Paris and this week Karl Lagerfeld went to St. Tropez to appear in Jean-Roch music video for his single “St. Tropez” where Snoop Dogg will appear too. So I guess the “collaboration” is a big word for the news but just imagine how their fashion collection would look like had they really worked on it together.
In other news, Carine Roitfeld gave an interview to Sunday Magazine. The ex-editor of Vogue Paris talked about her upcoming book Irreverent, editor work and cigarettes in fashion photography:
The book is dedicated to my husband, who quit smoking seven months ago. When he decided to stop smoking, I said, My God, it’s too bad I didn’t try to help him to stop before. Now I decide I will never use a cigarette again in any shoot. When you’re doing fashion pictures, you’re talking to lots of figures; some are very young, and they’re like sponges. So if your girl is smoking a cigarette, they can say, Oh, my God, it’s smart to smoke a cigarette, it’s good for the look, so I’m going to have one, too. And it’s totally stupid. It’s an easy solution to make a picture more interesting, but it’s not the only solution. And now it’s like, forgive me for all these cigarettes I’ve put in all these issues.
A bit late but guess it’s better than nothing.
Roitfeld was also asked about the spread with a 10 year old Thylane Blondeau styled as an adult and whether she should apologize for it:
A lot of people say I was fired because of this issue, because of the little girls dressed in mom clothes…It was very, very controversial. Old couples, kids, surgery. But it was not done on purpose because I was leaving. It was done before that, you know.
The reason I call my book “Irreverent” is because there were a lot of pictures that were very irreverent. Maybe I could call my book “Forgiving” because maybe I made a lot of errors too.
I mean what should one expect while putting a ten-year-old “model” on a cover dressed in “mom’s clothes”?
Madonna was sued for using a trademark – Material Girl for her Macy’s collection by clothes manufacturer L.A. Triumph. Despite creating a song of 1984 called Material Girl Madonna only has a song name copyright not a trademark. The trial will take place in October.
