Karl Lagerfeld will stage his Chanel Detiers d'Art show in Scotland this year.

The designer will bring his acclaimed fashion spectacular - a celebration of the fashion house's ateliers and focus on craftsmanship - to a secret location just outside of Edinburgh on December 4.

The show traditionally attracts famous fans of Chanel, including Vanessa Paradis and Diane Kruger.

It has previously been held in Paris, Tokyo, New York, Shanghai and London and each spectacular has a clear theme.

The pre-autumn/winter 2012-13 show was influenced by Bombay-inspired opulance, while

pre-autumn/winter 2011-12 had a Turkish tea shop theme.

Karl - who turns 80 next month - recently proclaimed he will never retire.

He said: ''Why should I stop working? If I do, I'll die and it'll all be finished.

''There's something boring about people who have to go to an office for a living. I wanted to do this job since I was a child. I love fashion.

''I'm lucky to work in the most perfect of conditions. I can do what I want in all kinds of areas. The expenses are not expenses. I would be stupid to stop that. Work is making a living out of being bored.''
