Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême Ad Campaign

chanel allure homme sport eau extreme kathryn bigelow danny fuller

Chanel has linked up with surfer Danny Fuller and Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow for the Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême ad campaign.  The stills and film are in black and white and feature Danny Fuller doing what he does best.  I especially love the male voice over saying the name of the fragrance – very sexy.  I might have to get this for my husband.

The Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême will officially begin to run in April, but Chanel dropped some sneak peeks today. On choosing to work with Kathryn Bigelow, Christine Dagousset, executive vice president of fragrance and beauté of Chanel stated:

Kathryn Bigelow has an amazing vision and ability to direct action-filled moments…In addition to ‘The Hurt Locker,’ she also directed the surf film ‘Point Break.’ She was the best person to direct this type of campaign, especially because of her affinity for the sport of surfing. Because Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême is the extreme version of the classic Allure Homme, the new concentration was meant to be more edgy, avant-garde and take more risks. This campaign does, as well. (WWD).

Chanel nose Jacques Polge created the new scent which has notes of mint, clary sage, black pepper from Madagascar, tonka bean and sandalwood.  Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extrême is available in two sizes: 1.7 oz. for $62 and 3.4 oz. for $84.

Karl Lagerfeld Interview & Sneak Peek of Chanel Boy Bag Campaign

I mentioned back in December that Karl Lagerfeld was at LeWeb Paris and that he loved his iPad and I later showed an animation of a sketch that he did of Steve Jobs on his iPad.  Today, I came across the actual full interview and it is FULL of Karlisms.  You hear Karl explain first hand about his four iPhones and hundreds of iPods and hear about technology is changing the way he works.  You’ll also catch a glimpse of a video he filmed of Alice Dellal for the upcoming Boy Bag campaign.  The video looks cute and is one of four – can’t wait to see this campaign!

Chanel Athletics Spring-Summer 2012 Campaign Shot by Karl Lagerfeld

Chanel Athletics Spring Summer 2012 Ad Campaign

It’s still cold outside but our glossies will soon be featuring the best of what’s to come this spring and summer. Chanel just released their Chanel Athletics Spring-Summer 2012 Campaign Shot images.  The campaign features Saskia de Brauw and Joan Smalls as the best dressed gymnasts ever, was styled by Carine Roitfeld and shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

This is the second Chanel campaign styled by Carine Roitfeld but these shots are not as whimsical as the campaign featuring Freja Beha. The Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection was inspired by the sea, so not surprisingly the sea is prominent in most of the photos. The campaign was shot at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France – the location of the Chanel 2011/2012 Cruise Collection.  The photos are beautiful and represent the simplicity and elegance that is the Chanel brand.

Alice Dellal Is The New Face of the Chanel Boy Bag Collection

alice delal chanel boy bag collection making of the campaignRumors 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.

Freja Beha Cries Chanel Tears

freja beha crying chanel logo tearsChanel News posted images of the making of the “Chanel Cocomation” – the campaign that Karl Lagerfeld shot and Carine Roitfeld styled.  By now we’ve seen the images in magazines and online but I don’t recall seeing any images with Freja Beha crying Chanel logo tears.  I wonder if there is also a little film go go along with the campaign? Here are the rest of the behind-the-scenes images…

Each day more and more images surface online of the Chanel ads styled by Carine Roitfeld featuring Freja Beha Erichsen and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.  Here are the latest shots – some are very racy.  I especially love the one of the Boy Bag – let the bag and the legs do the talking!

Vanessa Paradis Daydreams

I knew Vanessa Paradis was a singer but I didn’t realize that she sang the song in the Rouge Coco commercial that she starred in. Here’s a video of her recording Daydream – the song featured in the commercial – and the commercial itself as a reminder :)

Chanel Cruise 2011/12 Ad Campaign

Chanel Cruise 2011/12 by Karl Lagerfeld Saskia de Brauw

Last month shortly after Chanel showed its Cruise 2011/12 collection, I posted images of Karl Lagerfeld shooting images for the press kit.  Those images – also used for the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 ad campaign – have now surfaced online.  The ads are shot in black and white in a studio setting and they feature Karl’s “it boy” Baptiste Giabiconi and Saskia de Brauw.  The photos are a bit plain but I suppose they highlight the clothing and jewels since there is nothing else in the photo to distract you.  I have to admit that I don’t get why Saskia de Brauw was cast for this campaign.  She seems a bit plain to me. What do you think of the photos?
