Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams Sing a Duet for Chanel's Latest Short Film
Talk about a fashion dream team! Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams have partnered with Karl Lagerfeld on what may be the coolest Chanel film yet. The stylish duo stars in "Reincarnation," a short movie created and directed by Lagerfeld (the brand's creative director) that will accompany the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d'art collection when it's shown on Dec. 2, 2014, in Salzburg, Austria.
"Reincarnation" reenacts a vacation Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel took to an Austrian resort in 1954, where the designer became transfixed with a jacket worn by the hotel’s elevator operator that became the inspiration for the iconic Chanel jacket that we know and love today. In the clip, Delevingne and Williams play a couple in love who soulfully sing a melodic duet of "CC the World," an original song composed and written by the musician specifically for the project. The set is meant to evoke an Austrian hunting lodge in the spirit of the upcoming line and Coco's trip, and the period costumes are (of course!) incredible.
But that's not all—Delevingne and Williams will reunite for the Paris-Salzburg collection's advertising campaign, which will drop in May 2015. Watch the teaser for "Reincarnation" above, and look for the full version when it premieres Dec. 1 on chanel.com.
