Say my name, Say my name….or actually, don’t!

Karl Lagerfeld has been quoted widely in the past, and well, sometimes his comments can be a teeny bit elitist (yet always entertaining).

Same can be said for this full page ad, which appeared in WWD recently. It’s written by the brand marketers, read: lawyers, of said label formerly designed by a woman named Coco.

From now on, we will not refer to Chanel in this space, but rather the label which shall remain nameless. Am I allowed to roll my eyes or is that an infringement of some kind as well?

    That’s quite an statement Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld is making by posting that huge ad. While I understand the importance of maintaining brand identity and control, this may be too much?

    This reminds me – Lagerfeld was recently interviewed on Fashion Television commenting on the two Coco Chanel movies screened at Cannes 2009. He was less than impressed with them calling it “mediocre.” Ouch!
