Karl Lagerfeld is staging Chanel’s latest Métiers d’art collection runway in Salzburg, Austria, next week on December, 1st and knowing him, the event will be a spectacle of epic proportions.
The designer has released a sneak peek of the runway’s accompanying film. The video “Reincarnation” features Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams, in a reenactment of Gabrielle Chanel and her obsession with a particular jacket. While vacationing at an Austrian resort in 1954, the designer became fascinated by the jacket worn by the hotel’s elevator operator, portrayed by Williams. The style, with contrasting trim and pockets, would go on to become transformed into the French fashion house’s signature piece.
Given that Delevingne is reportedly working on her first single with Williams, it makes her musical debut even more exciting. Mark your calendars for December 1st, on Chanel.com.
