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 GMTMariah Carey to sing at Billboard awards after 17-year break ANGELES (AP) — Mariah Carey is set to perform at the Billboard Music Awards for the first time in 17 years, but the pop superstar is keeping mum on what song she'll sing.eArts and entertainmentMusicEntertainmentBillboard Music AwardsCelebrityEvents, 05 May 2015 13:52:51 GMTUS service firms grew at a faster pace in April, driven by more orders, uptick in hiring (AP) — US service firms grew at a faster pace in April, driven by more orders, uptick in hiring.wBusinessGeneral news, 05 May 2015 14:05:25 GMTTainted synthetic marijuana sickens users in Connecticut, Conn.
