The buzz last week—the non-caffeinated one—was all about Karl’s new Coca-Cola Light bottle. Turns out the Lagerfeld has shot a campaign for it, too, starring Coco Rocha (in a Lagerfeldian foulard) and bottle service by KL favorite Baptiste Giabiconi. Finally, all that practice pouring the Kaiser’s Cokes pays off! [WWD]
Hermès is launching fine jewelry—what it calls haute bijouterie—designed by Pierre Hardy. The first collection includes “Centaure” pieces inspired by horse hooves in rose gold, black jade, and diamonds, and cost in the ballpark of entire horses. [WWD]
Jason Wu fills in Refinery29 on his favorite NYC spots, from the pork-bun capital of Manhattan (Momofuku) to his pick for vintage finds (Narnia Vintage). Let the Jason-spotting begin. [R29]
Karl Lagerfeld knows how to put on a show. This morning at Chanel, it was a real barnstormer in the Grand Palais, with a set inspired by Marie Antoinette’s peasant-y playground Le Petit Trianon, that featured a giant haystack and barn, of course branded with a huge Chanel logo. Taking it all in were Prince, Claudia Schiffer, and Clémence Poésy. The show began with a crowing rooster, and surprise guest Lily Allen and her band popped out of the floor to play her hit “Not Fair,” but perhaps not quite live. Heidi Mount was the first girl out. Though she didn’t read the set as the backyard of Versailles but rather her native Utah. Oh, and she got to hold a real live pig. There was holding and more when Freja Beha Erichsen and Lara Stone went for the proverbial roll in the hay with Lagerfeld darling Baptiste Giabiconi. No one was allowed to use their iPhones or BlackBerrys, so they had to save all their hoedown humor for later. UPDATE: We’ve got the whole show up. Click here to take in the countryside couture.
