Yeah, I said it!
Chanel's collaboration with soft drink Coca Cola is ticking me off like a time bomb. The genius Karl Lagerfeld decided to let go some of that genius by designing a fancy, 64$ Coca Cola LIGHT bottle. I remember discussing this last Spring when they released it but never really got to the bottom of it. Three things I must address :
1. Why have they only designed a Coca Cola LIGHT bottle, why not a normal one as well?
2. Why does Karl Lagerfeld have the need to provoke the industry in such ravishing ways?
3. Seriously, we know you cant stand "plus size" models but bottles?? WOW!
All I can say is that I'm disappointed. I understand that designers have their ideas and images of how they want their clothes to be carried, worn and presented. But when it comes to the world's most popular soft drink, that children under the age of 10 drink, provoking the idea of thin and skinny as the ideal of beauty isn't right. Surely Coca Cola light contains less sugar, which is good for health but the idea behind this particular campaign doesn't inspire healthiness, quite the opposite.
Let me introduce you to a beautiful model-Crystal Renn. Who is she?
She happens to be a "plus size" model(yeah right) who modelled for Chanel and also walked the catwalk for their Resort 2011. She isn't plus size!! She's normal, average size, beautiful curves, she has a body similar to Marilyn Monroe and now she's called "plus size". Oh well, still happy there's someone who doesn't look like she's starving modelling for top designers. Keep doing ya thang gurl #kanyeshrug.
