Karl Lagerfeld isn't lacking in the awards department. This week the designer was in New York to receive a Gordon Parks Foundation Award for his creativity but despite his big win, people were more interested in asking him about his highly anticipated collaboration with Carine Roitfeld on Chanel's Fall 2011 campaign, which was leaked this week.
“It’s about one woman who is transformed," he told The Cut. “Everybody talked about this campaign and wants to see it,” he said. “Apparently there’s already a few images on the net. They were stolen; because we had shown nothing.” Despite having to pose in a small photo booth, Freja Beha Erichsen - who walked the red carpet with Lagerfeld at the event - explained that it was actually very easy. “He knows exactly what he wants," she explained, "and he has a whole vision in his head, and he’s very creative, and he’ll come up with ideas for every single shoot, which makes my job extremely easy.”
