Meryl Streep Explaining Trends

One of the strongest influencers of our time has been Karl Lagerfeld.  He designed for Chanel since 1982 making the brand into what it is today.  Unfortunately, we lost him this year. His impact, however, is continuing to influence us and there’s no stronger example of this than the Metiers D’art collection which is in stores right now.  It’s a collection that is HEAVILY influenced by yellow gold. It’s not a new concept, but reimagined in a REALLY exciting way; thus, speaking to what is happening with yellow gold in the jewelry industry.

To sum it up, it saddens me that Karl Lagerfeld is no longer with us.  I’m sure he’s hanging out with all of his contemporaries in a very cool place.  However, his impact will be felt for years to come… RIP Karl
