The collection paid homage to the host country, blending modernity and tradition. "Modern, international version of a typical Korean mood, how we see it for the modern 21st century but with inspiration from the past because I love the traditional Korean clothes, materials, patterns and all that. But it had to be made in a modern way because you can get cheap copies of the real one in any market. The real antique ones nobody can touch," said Lagerfeld. The collection looked to Chanel's past with monochromatic black and white but with the modern twist of bolero jackets over long shorts. Some pieces were inspired by the Korean hanbok, a traditional dress that was updated with a sequined skirt or broach. The show in Seoul was attended by several Korean celebrities such as actor and singer Choi Si-Won and actress and singer Im Yoona, as well as model Gisele Bundchen and actresses Kristen Stewart and Tilda Swinton.By The Associated PressaArts and entertainmentGeneral newsFashion showsCelebrityEntertainmentFashion designFashionBeauty and fashionLifestyleSeoulSouth KoreaEast AsiaAsia, 05 May 2015 12:58:15 GMTNepali police dig bodies from village and trekking route, Nepal (AP) — Rescuers were digging Tuesday through thousands of tons of earth from a quake-triggered mudslide in Nepal that wiped out an entire village along a popular Himalayan trekking route and killed at least 60 people.By BINAJ GURUBACHARYAiGeneral news2015 Nepal earthquakeNatural disastersAccidents and disastersProperty damageEventsOutdoor recreationRecreation and leisureLifestyleIndustrial products and servicesIndustriesBusinessNepalKathmanduUnited StatesSouth AsiaAsiaNorth America, 05 May 2015 12:57:53 GMTRemote home of leprosy patients could open door wider (AP) — A remote peninsula that has been the home of leprosy patients since the 19th century could be opened more fully to the public as the last remaining residents near the end of their lives.By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHERaGeneral newsHealthTravelLifestyleHawaiiUnited StatesNorth America, 05 May 2015 11:58:13 GMTIS claims responsibility for Texas cartoon attack (AP) — The Islamic State group claimed responsibility on Tuesday for a weekend attack at a center near Dallas, Texas, that was exhibiting cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad — though it offered no evidence of a direct link to the attackers.By MAAMOUN YOUSSEFiGeneral newsWar and unrestTerrorismViolent crimeCrimeTexasDallasSyriaCanadaMiddle EastUnited StatesNorth America, 05 May 2015 11:17:18 GMT10 Things to Know for Today daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today:By The Associated PressaGeneral news, 05 May 2015 11:11:47 GMTFreddie Mac posts $524M profit in 1Q; paying $746M dividend (AP) — Mortgage giant Freddie Mac reported net income of $524 million for the first quarter, down sharply from the same period of 2014, as it sustained losses on the investments it uses to hedge against swings in interest rates.fBusinessFinancial performanceCorporate news, 05 May 2015 12:30:43 GMTKerry visits Somalia; 1st such trip for a secretary of state, Somalia (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry made an unannounced trip to Somalia Tuesday in a show of solidarity with a government trying to defeat al-Qaida-allied militants and end decades of war in the African country.
