Karl Lagerfeld's film inspiration;
It was time to show the origins of the Chanel jacket, inspired by the one worn by the lift attendant in a hotel near Salzburg in the 1950s. Reincarnation is the story of a lift attendant’s jacket being reincarnated as a timeless piece of women’s wear."
‘Reincarnation’ is the title of the video-clip created and directed by Karl Lagerfeld to accompany the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d'art collection to be shown on December 2nd 2014 in Salzburg.
