A Very Different Chanel for Spring 2020

This collection was far more demure than what we’ve come to expect from runway shows and the over-the-top settings and themes Lagerfeld seamlessly presented season after season. Every item may not have been ideal for everyday wear, but there was a strong cohesion and playfulness that helped create some of the most memorable bags that quickly turned into collectors items. Viard has big shoes to fill as she discovers her own essence at Chanel, but if this collection is a look at what to expect, it will be far different from Lagerfeld. A few classics were spotted with tonal metal hardware matching the bright blue and green leather. As for new designs, there was a cylindrical wristlet with a cursive Chanel...

Chanel’Bags Fall/Winter 2019

If Cara Delevingne's strong lead on the Chanel runway and Penélope Cruz's modeling debutwere not enough to impress you, feast your eyes on the last round of accessories Karl Lagerfeld designed for the fashion house.   In most cases, Karl's bags, shoes, and jewelry follow the theme of the season, which, in this case, is a Winter wonderland. While Chanel seems to be suggesting that clutches are the bag silhouette of the season, Karl also crafted incredibly delicate minaudières in the shape of ski gondolas, complete with a signature logo embellishment. If you love the wintry weather, there are plenty of pearl earrings and brooches — even statement necklaces! — shaped like snowflakes, and the chain-link-lined or grommet-studded bandanas will satisfy the edgier set, or those still very...

Chanel unveils Boy de Chanel, a new makeup line for men

Chanel is launching a whole makeup line and it’s specially catered for men. While it’s no surprise to see men in makeup anymore (and doing it so well), to first hear about a collection dedicated to the gents is a whole different ball game for the beauty industry. The collection is named after Boy Capel, the lover and muse of Gabrielle Chanel. Just like how Gabrielle Chanel borrows elements from men’s wardrobes to dress women, Chanel draws inspiration from the women’s world to conceive these new makeup products — a new personal aesthetic for men. The new makeup line comes in the same sleek design as the women’s but in a midnight blue shade. Le Teint is the tinted foundation in Boy de Chanel collection,...

GASPARD ULLIEL About the BLEU DE CHANEL Parfum advertising campaign

For the third time, Gaspard Ulliel is reprising his role as the BLEU DE CHANEL man. After Martin Scorsese and James Gray, the French actor now steps before the camera of Steve McQueen. Following the same theme of desire for freedom that was initiated in the first campaign, here he portrays a man who has matured, who seems more serene, on a quest for inner peace.     “This new facet is what appealed to me,” explains Gaspard Ulliel. “I like the way this man has evolved, it’s almost as if we grew at the same pace. He is constantly looking to break with convention and the diktats of society. He scoffs at prejudices and is happy with who he is, but his approach is...

Chanel N°5 L’Eau All-Over Spray and On Hand Cream Campaign

"You Know Me And You Don’t" digital campaign with a film portraying a dance of paradoxical movements. With these new ways to wear fragrance, N°5 is always in motion, featuring a different gesture, sensation and intensity with each product.     Directed by the talented Jacob Sutton and orchestrated by choreographer Dimitri Chamblas, the film presents each shot like a photograph, keeping the movement alive by capturing it in the moment. It portrays a “dual” woman who expresses her different moods through a cathartic dance: a sensual and powerful dance to represent the cream, versus a light and airy dance to represent the mist. The tension gradually builds until the final moment when the two women become one and the same person, two facets of one personality.     The split-screen film...

Chanel Métiers d’art Paris-Hamburg 2018

Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Hamburg and the Elbphilharmonie to present the new CHANEL Métiers d’art collection.  An extraordinary building conceived by the architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, this concert hall sits majestically by the river like a futuristic liaison with the city’s industrial port.     Past, present and future. The three units of time that have inspired Karl Lagerfeld for this Paris-Hamburg collection. Around these three axes, the designer infuses images of the Hamburg port, with gliding silhouettes of the merchant navy crew that he disrupts with the modernism of CHANEL. He revisits their wardrobe, re-appropriating their pea coats, their drop-front trousers, sweaters and immutable caps. While the spirit of Gabrielle Chanel – she who stole the striped sailor top...
