Iceberg And Faux Fur Take Center Stage At Chanel Fashion Show

Shipping in ice from Sweden, designer Karl Lagerfeld created a 265-ton iceberg which was displayed center stage at the Chanel Fall Winter 2010/2011 Preview in France. The vision? The world is not warming but rather cooling.

“Have you felt any warming this winter?” Lagerfeld asked reporters. “Maybe that’s all nonsense, who knows.” He added, “In any case, nature has its surprises.”

Models donned in shaggy faux fur coats, pants, and boots – and resembling Yetis – sloshed through the giant melting glacier (Possibly the real story?) as they showed off the must-have fashion for upcoming frigid temperatures. The models pranced through the arctic setting while the song “Ich moechte ein Eisbaer sein” (translation = “I want to be a polar bear”) was sung over techno beats.

And if there was any argument over Lagerfeld’s statement, he told the Telegraph, “It’s not global warming, it’s global-cooling!”

Karl Lagerfeld also used the show as an opportunity to celebrate faux fur “because fake fur has changed so much and is so great now that you can hardly see a difference.” He continued, “You cannot fake chic but you can be chic in fake fur.”
