Karl Lagerfeld cited Hammershoi as one of his inspirations for the colour palette of his Spring 2011 Couture collection, and I was delighted to hear this as I too am a fan of Hammershoi's. His work is just so fresh and the sense of light is beautiful, a feeling tat I got when viewing the masterful work at Chanel. My parents visited an exhibition of Hammershoi's work a few years ago in London and I really wish I had gone. Fortunately they got the accompanying book so I still got to have a look at his stunning pictures!
