Chanel’s Tale of a Fairy (video)

“It is a movie about an ill-advised use of money which begins with violence and ends with feeling.”

Karl Lagerfeld,
May 2011

The Cruise collections cometh. With them comes the spectacle of the catwalk, but also the necessity of the souvenir. For Chanel’s 2011 / 2012 Cruise collection that souvenir comes in the guise of The Tale of a Fairy, a short film imagined, written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of’s co-founders.
