>> For last year's Chanel Pre-Fall "Paris-Moscow" collection, Karl Lagerfeld directed a ten minute silent film, with Edita Vilkeviciute starring as a young Coco Chanel. This year's Chanel Pre-Fall collection, which was dubbed "Paris-Shanghai," debuted in the latter city today; Karl directed a new short film for the occasion, with Edita back as young Coco in a more expansive 22-minute set, this time with dialogue. Heidi Mount, Freja Beha Erichsen, and of course, Baptiste Giabiconi, join her in the tableau, which was projected against the Shanghai cityscape as part of the presentation.
