An army of Chanel-clad Parisians thronged around Karl Lagerfeld last night at the signing for English author Justine Picardie’s book, “Chanel Sa Vie” at bookstore Galignani. “Karl read the book and contacted me and said he wanted to illustrate it,” said Picardie who said she was in the throws of writing a new non-fiction work. “It will be a memoir,” she disclosed.
Meanwhile the great, great niece of Chanel, Marine le Bruni and her father turned up for the cocktail. “I have this amazing silver mink stole from Chanel,” said Le Bruni, while her father proudly said that they are the only two direct descendents of the iconic designer.
