KARL LAGERFELD AND DANCE
“Classical ballet accepts only perfection,“ explains Karl Lagerfeld. “I have made ballet costumes for the Monte Carlo Opera, for La Scala in Milan, for the Opéra de Paris and others… This is an art that does not tolerate mediocrity.“ Passionate about all forms of art, Karl Lagerfeld keeps exploring the links between CHANEL and dance. The artistic director of the House put his skill set to several works such as Elena Glurdjidze's outfit for The Dying Swan, or the set and costumes for the Brahms-Schonberg-Quartet ballet with a choreography by Balanchine, to name a few. He continues to collaborate with a number of choreographers, thus perpetuating Gabrielle Chanel’s love of dance.
