A political statement about climate change was the last thing on Karl Lagerfeld's mind when he trotted Chanel's Fall/Winter 2010 collection in front of a giant, 265-ton glacier in Paris on Tuesday. (He counts the Ice Hotel in Sweden, not drowning polar bears, as his inspiration.) But can an iceberg be just an iceberg in these post-COP15 times? "Have you felt any warming this winter?" Lagerfeld asked reporters after the show. "Maybe that's all nonsense, who knows." Et tu, Karl?
