I'd like to call Chanel's latest collection "Klaus Nomi Couture". It's so wonderful that Lagerfeld payed homage to the truly great, and nearly forgotten artist (though I wonder if he himself knows that's what he did).
Check out the similarities for yourself:
And if so inspired, I highly recommend watching Andrew Horn's 2004 documentary, The Nomi Song, as well as picking up a copy of Nomi's fantastically fun, self-titled New Wave/opera LP, Klaus Nomi (1981).
