I love Texas. I love Texans, said the Kaiser at the WWD Apparel & Retail CEO Summit in New York yesterday.
Following 2012s opulent, Scotland-inspired showcase
held in a purpose-built marquee in the grounds of Linlithgow Palace outside Edinburgh, Largerfeld
said he is keen to do something opposite this time.
The designer also cited the support of the American press as one of the reasons for choosing the location and went on to explain the connection with Texas is just, A detail, but with little detail, you can make a whole story. I am a storyteller for that.
The show is bound to be a theatrical fashion moment - heres hoping Texan models Erin Wasson
, Jerry Hall
and her daughter Georgia May Jagger
will be walking the runway, telling Chanels Texan story as only Largerfeld can.
