Thank You, Chanel, for Showing Us What Cara Delevingne Looks Like as a Cartoon
Money may not grow on trees, but apparently Chanel handbags do.
At least that’s the case in the fantasyland the Parisian fashion house built to promote its Gabrielle handbag. Sign us up, please! After releasing a film starring Kristen Stewart last week, Chanel is back at it again, this time with Cara Delevingne.
Not surprisingly, the model stars as a badass skater girl dressed in a hoodie, a beanie, and black sneakers on a quest to find one thing: Chanel’s Gabrielle. It sounds like any other Chanel campaign, but this time, the entire thing is animated.
Japanese director ShiShi Yamazaki brings Delevingne’s too-cool spirit to life as she zips across a city on a skateboard and literally rips handbags off the branches of a tree. If you were to squint, Yamazaki did such a good job animating the model that from afar it seriously looks like a real video.
Of course, the entire campaign is set to reflect Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s original menswear-inspired 1955 design, which Karl Lagerfeld regularly looks back to for inspiration. Well done.
