Leave it to a fashion icon to actually move mountains well, an iceberg, in this case. For his latest collection, Karl Lagerfeld had a 240 ton chunk of ice transported from Sweden to Paris. It took an inordinate amount of energy to transport the colossal iceberg to France. I would have rather seen the models and audience travel to the iceberg where they could have experienced the natural environment before it changes.
The hypocrisy of the show was glaring- moving the iceberg only contributed to global warming. In a way it made Mr. Lagerfeld and his collection that much more obsolete. I am not sure if the fashion world is looking the other way, as in the New York Times article by Guy Trebay, or if it's so obvious that it doesn't need mentioning. I have decided it need to be said, and I'm glad I'm not the only one.
