Last night, Azealia Banks was in Tokyo to perform as the featured artist at the Chanel and Japan pop up store opening celebration. The young Harlem native is one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite new artists. He blessed her with a customized “212” inspired sweater; had her perform at a private party at his home in Paris; and now flys her to Japan to expose the beautiful people to that new-new.
