Rumors have been swirling online for a week or so and now Chanel has confirmed that Karl Lagerfeld has chosen Alice Dellal to be the face of the Boy Chanel handbag collection. The designer had a crush on this unique, charismatic young lady, who is both a model and musician, during a photo shoot several months ago. Though at first I thought the collaboration curious, I think it makes sense. Alice Dellal represents the perfect incarnation of all that is unique about the Boy Chanel handbag collection which strives far from conformist notions of femininity.
Ultra-modern, refined and mysterious, Alice Della is the latest in the line of CHANEL muses, each boasting their own inimitable allure – that je ne sais quoi that Mademoiselle herself perfected.
The advertising campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld will be revealed in March 2012. I can’t wait to see this. From what I can see from the preview I already love what Alice Dellal is wearing and she looks more feminine than she normally does.
