Continuing the week’s Chanel theme… We are loving the Alice Dellal campaign for Chanel’s Boy handbag range. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself in an opulent French chateau, the resulting look is an alluring blend of the exquisite and the artfully dishevelled.
Alice brings her unique brand of devil-may-care cool to the trad pearls and tweeds – and the combination is killer.
The genius of juxtaposition: Undercut + pearl hairclips; Chanel bag + ripped tights
The model has just been announced as the new face of Chanel’s new it-bag, Boy.
Shooting for Karl (literally) is striking sartorial gold… where will she go from here?
To top it off, the Chanel creative director is full of praise for Alice, calling her charismatic and unique.
A Chanel spokesperson said: ‘Karl Lagerfeld had a crush on this unique, charismatic young lady, who is both a model and musician, during a photo shoot several months ago. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident. Alice Dellal represents the perfect incarnation of all that is unique about the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives to be far from conformist notions of femininity.’
