Knitting in the News: Vogue's September Issue

The knitting universe has been buzzing about the Chanel ads in the September issue of Vogue.  Why?
Yes, the models are knitting!  And, unlike the rest of us, they seem to be able to float in space while they do it!  (Note to self:  research whether any real astronaut has knit while on a space mission.  Those Russians seem like the industrious type to make practical use of their down time on the space station.)  

 So what do they seem to be knitting?  Did Karl run so horribly late on production of his model garments that he's got them working the few last rows?  Sadly, none of the other black, white and leather garments shown in the ad give us a hint of what the knitters might be making with that brightly colored yarn.  And, it doesn't appear that the other items in the ad, while they are intriguing, are even knit.

The fabulous garment below seems to be made of scrumbled lace.  Perhaps an inspiration for a crochet garment?
