«Reincarnation» is the new short film created and directed by Karl Lagerfeld to accompany the CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d'art collection shown on December 2nd, 2014 in Salzburg. This new short film was the perfect opportunity for Karl Lagerfeld to develop an artistic collaboration with Pharrell Williams, a close friend of the House and personal friend of the designer. In fact, the artist composed and wrote the lyrics to «CC The World,» the original soundtrack for Reincarnation, and he also plays one of the lead roles and will be, along with Cara Delevingne, the face of the upcoming campaign of the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d'art collection.

Just Grow It


A French artist known as Monsieur Plant is living up to his name with his very own line of Nike sneakers made out of plants, dirt, bark and moss. The creations are the artist's way of showing the dichotomy between marketing, media and ethics.

Sissi and Franz Joseph 2014


Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams make for an attractive couple in the teaser clip for Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel short film «Reincarnation».

The film, which will be released on December 1st, retells the story of Gabrielle Chanel's visit to a resort in Austria in 1954 where she was so transfixed by the hotel elevator operator's jacket it became the basis for the classic Chanel jacket. 

Pharrell Williams plays the lift operator as well as a reincarnated Franz Joseph I, Emperor of Austria. Cara Delevingne acts as the Emperor's wife, Elisabeth of Austria, better known as Sissi. Delevingne duets with Williams for the film's original Pharrell composition «CC the World». 

A Karl Lagerfeld version of history. We'll stay tuned.

Today's problems drawn in the style of the 50s


John Holcroft is a well-known British illustrator who has worked for BBC, Reader’s Digest, The Guardian and the Financial Times, among others. However, what makes him famous are not his employers, but the brilliant satire reflected in his illustrations and the retro style he uses to create them.

Everytime Holcroft publishes a new drawing, they inevitably go viral and spread all over the Internet. His style is based on advertisements from the 50’s, and he reproduces everything from their visual design style down to their aged vintage feel.

The content of these illustrations, however, is anything but old-fashioned – social issues and modern behavior drawn in a satirical way. The issues he focuses on include our dependence on technology, society’s greed and the devaluation of workers, just to name a few.

Rude cakes


Graphic designer Sarah Brockett created the project Bold Bakery, an unconventional bakery that stuffs its cakes and cookies with sarcasm and sass instead of cream and sugar.

Sarah Brockett states: «Though its branding may make it appear cute and friendly, the Bold Bakery is not where you want to purchase Grandma's birthday cake from. It is, however, the perfect place to have a pie created for your cheating husband, or your bratty pre-teen daughter. This establishment simply oozes with sarcasm and sass.»
