On a crisp day late this January, I was walking down the Avenue Montaigne in Paris. I stopped to admire the Chanel windows, which showcased the Spring 2011 collection. My eye was drawn to the colourful backdrops. They were a perfect counterpoint to the ethereally pretty pastel-shaded clothes in the windows. I took some photographs. It was only when I uploaded these that I noticed the signature in the bottom right hand corner. The artist is none other than the talented polymath Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld head honcho at The House of Chanel
Karl Lagerfeld; designer, artist, photographer and intellectual, is now moonlighting selling VW Golf cars. As I drive a black Golf, I am very pleased that Monsieur Karl has dubbed it, très elegant. Well er no, since you enquire, not exactly my car in particular more Golfs in general. Take a look at the ad below.
What do you drive and is it très elegant?
