Ok, this rumour is spreading fast:

Karl Lagerfeld won't be renewing his contract with Chanel. Wait, there is more. Alber Elbaz will be the Kaizer's successor, meaning he's in turn leaving Lanvin. Icing on the cake? Olivier Theyskens will be taking his place (at Lanvin). What a triangle.

Nothing has been confirmed just yet, however, here's one of his latest interviews where he takes Harriet Mays Powell through what may be his last collection for the legendary fashion house (Chanel AW09).

Look out for the quote: "It's a stupid idea but, you know, best ideas are stupid". Can't help but love Lagerfeld interviews.

heard this rumor too and at first i was really happy about Elbaz! (i Love him!) but then i heard that he is not moving as he has already created the Lanvin's Cruise 2010 collection!

I think that it's simply a rumour. Karl is basic in Maison Chanel!

Actually Alber Elbaz wouldn't be bad at all.. But after soooooooooo many years of Lagerfeld it would be weird, guess! We'll see!
