#1150 Karl Lagerfeld’s not going anywhere

Once again, the rumours surrounding Karl Lagerfeld’s impending departure from the house of Chanel were incorrect. Chanel sent out the following statement this morning: “Please note that Karl Lagerfeld is the Creative Designer of CHANEL and has a long-term contract with the company. Replacing him is not an issue.” So to answer all my own questions, I guess Alber Elbaz will be staying where he is, as will Lucas Ossendrijver at Lanvin menswear. Baptiste Giabiconi has nothing to worry about, Karl Lagerfeld will keep on doin’ what he’s keepin’ on doin’ and hopefully – hopefully – Hedi Slimane will show up somewhere. Until then, this storm in a teacup started by Jak and Jil’s Tommy Ton can be solved by watching style.com’s recent Paris videos, according to Tommy Ton. I just did, and didn’t notice anything at all. Anybody else??
