Who said lookbooks had to be boring? Chanel has released the press kit for its Pre-Fall Metiers d’Art collection, which debuted with much fanfare in Dallas last week. And, thanks to couturier-cum-shutterbug Karl Lagerfeld, the package includes some campaign-worthy images, which star his show opener, the newly platinum Ashleigh Good. Sure, the pair had a little fun with the clothes’ Texas theme (cue the photos’ sepia tone, and Good striking a shoot-em-up pose in leather gloves and a metal-fringed jacket). But the snaps, which show every painstaking detail of the Western-inspired range, are cold hard proof that, despite some critics’ concerns, Karl’s latest outing is anything but costume.
