It's been often said that Karl Lagerfeld is a genius; I won't argue that.

He is.

But where I find his genius to lie within is not in Lagerfeld's indisputable talent but in his ability to keep such an established house young and modern. While the collection was textile and texture rich, the overall emotion was light and sporty. The models wore sneakers!

How fabulous is that?!

[Watch the video] the show doesn't disappoint in visual drama. That stage was immaculate and glorious plus who can resist a grand staircase? What I found most ironic and perhaps controversial about the collection was Lagerfeld's use of the corset -- and item despised by Queen Coco! I'm sure it was no accident.
