In the three-act story, entitled Public Garden, Lindsey Wixson and a fellow blond beauty alight on a bench in the gardens to examine recent purchases from Chanel's Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection. After they watch model Aymeline Valade stroll by, Brad Kroening and his 4-year-old son Hudson — who's also Lagerfeld's godson — come and sit on the adjacent bench.
Wixson and her friend encounter Valade and both of the Kroenig men in each of the subsequent acts, finally learning how the three are connected at the end of the film. A look at the story — and the all the clothing — in the video below.
Hudson Kroenig: remember that name. He's fashion's rising runway star. He's also four.
On Tuesday night, Hudson walked his third Chanel runway show, at the annual Chanel Metiers d'Art collection in Scotland. Dressed like Little Lord Fauntleroy in a bowed blouse, knickers, kilt, and a velvet beret, it was the kind of outfit that would prompt most kids his age to throw a tantrum. But Hudson is a professional.
At age one, he was photographed for German Vogue. By two he was taking Paris' fashion week by storm, walking for Chanel hand in hand with his father Brad. By four he had two campaigns (Fendi, Dolce&Gabbana), and several glossy photo shoots (W, Harper's Bazaar, Pirelli Calendar) under his belt.
Hudson was born into the industry. The 32-year-old Brad Kroenig is one of the leading male supermodels in the industry. After rising the ranks from Abercrombie poster-boy to the face of Chanel, Brad became close with Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic brand's creative lead. When Hudson was born in 2008, he named the eccentric designer as his son's godfather.
