Chanel's Successor : The Air Apparent.....


Whispers on the wind are murmuring that Alber Elbaz will take the helm of the mighty ocean liner H.M.S. Chanel. It's not official and for that reason I'm extremely uncomfortable with this post. But it appears that the heir apparent is Alber Elbaz. An official announcement is moments away so you and I will have to wait and see. It's an interesting and compelling choice, confounding in some ways and very prescient in others. I'm going to ruminate on this for a few hours and get back to you. I don't like rumors and especially when they're fuelled by hot air, but there just may be something to this. I pride myself with tackling what is and not chasing or trumpeting what isn't.....It's just another manic Monday .

Yep, just another manic Monday..I'll be waiting in the wings for the official news! Your take on it will be the interesting part.

How brave of you to at least admit you are EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE with second hand gossip which you decided to post anyway! What conviction! Jk, we all handle rumors with flimsy piety.

I come to you for originality. This rumor is months old, and if you won't kindly and respectfully hint to us, your faithful readers, what further source you have other than your peer bloggers, then how about this -- can you paint a more thorough "what if" picture of where Lanvin and Chanel will go if Elbaz steers both? Thank you!

Robert - I agree with your comment. i much more interested in what The Emperor predicts would happen if this rumor is true?

Frankly, I want to see Lagerfeld devote more energy into his brand.

NICE SCOOP!!!
Can't wait to hear more.

Amber said...

Wait, didn't Chanel release a statement saying Karl isn't going anywhere?

I'm confused...Oh well. Time will tell.

This rumor has surfaced before, I wonder if there's anything to it... time will tell.

But I have to wonder, wouldn't it be less of a hassle just to wait for him to die?

When THEY start shooting it down like crazy..erm..it's more than likely to happen is it not?
Albert Elbez would make a much better bear than Karl IMHO.
