One of my new favorite shows on TV is the documentary series by filmaker Loic Prigent, is signe chanel on the Sundance channel. The series focuses on the design, development and evolution of the Chanel fall/winter collection for 2005. Watching Karl Lagerfeld at work is fascinating. But watching the unbelievable craftspeople involved in bringing his creative vision to life is beyond anything I've ever seen. These people are artists as well as artisans. Though actually when I think about it, they seem more like magicians, as we watch them take a working sketch from Mr. Lagerfeld and bring it to dimensional, beautiful life, all by hand and under immense time pressures. For anyone who loves craft, design, fashion and story, this series is a total treat. Love, love, love it.
