Model, journalist, editor, writer and real institution on fashion world: Carine Roitfeld is all of this and even more. After ten years of direction of Vogue France (from 2001 to 2011), she leaves the magazine to devote to personal projects. She collaborates on Chanel's fall/winter and spring/summer campaigns, launches her first book Irriverent and, in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld, partecipates to realization of "The little black jacket: Chanel's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld", the photo book presented the last march in Tokyo (about which I've talked here).
